Ok, finally! I can show you my christmas house! I took about 90 pictures yesterday morning! I think I have saved about 50 of them.. but I obviously wont post them all! well, at least not today. I thought Id start in the living room. I love decorating for the holidays, did you know that ? LOL!
There are three trees in the living room. two smaller ones and this one above, which is also small. i think I told you that my grandmothers parrot takes up the spot where we always put a fresh cut tree, so Ive downsized to this little tree. which, though I miss a fresh tree, I love this one. And I can put it up myself, dont need to wait for hubby to feel like going to cut one down!
You probably know that I collect Lori Mitchell figures , these are some of my favorites and they hang out with my favorite table top tree.
the reindeer and santa above were swap gifts from Debra Schoch of hophopjingleboo, one of my favorite artists! And on this tree is a bunch of very special swap ornaments! so much sweet stuff!
Dontcha love this snow guy? made for me by my special friend Kelly! (Wait til you see what I made for her for christmas this afternoon! I want to keep it! lol)
just stuff around the living room.....
I used to put out a ton of bears.. but I dont get them all out anymore. however, there are still a lot of bears in here.. dont be fooled! lol!
My favorite shelves to play in for holidays. so much fun in there! someday, my grandpies are gonna be begging to play with this stuff!
I used to make a santa every year and Ive given a bunch away, but I still have a few. I havent made one for myself in a few years.. Maybe its time again!
My house is very small. I like to think of it as a cottage. a cottage in the summer and a cabin in the winter! lol. anyways, yes, it is cute.. but I kid you not... it needs WORK.. major work.
Frannie was trying to get in all the pictures! lol!
OK, thats it for the living room. I didnt take pictures of everything, but you can get the idea of what this room looks like.
This weekend has gone by so fast! but I had a productive day. Yesterday morning I worked on a christmas project, then went to rochester for the neroni chelini christmas party.
but today, I got a lot done, finished the project I started yesterday, wrapped most of the christmas presents, cleaned the house, went shopping for a couple hours, had a great dinner, steaks on the grill, mushrooms,baked sweet potatos, brussel sprouts and garlic bread! yummy! and then made my friend Kellys christmas gift. Now.. here I am.. and in a minute I'm off to the couch!
sooo toodles girlie pies..
9 days til santa comes!
I wish there really was a santa.... I was so heart broken when I was a kid and figured out that there really wasnt one!
Ok.. sweet dreams!
