Bits of Christmas

We always have a real tree I only wish you could smell the Christmas!  Pictures never do it justice.                            
                              Our Tree In the Foyer

My Favorite Ornament

The topper that I made with two ribbons.

Garland on the Bannister . I really hope to get some better quality garland at the after Christmas sales.

Simple centerpiece in the dining room.  I have not gotten my Lenox Holiday out because I hosted a shower in my home last weekend and I have gotten lazy!

My Breakfast Tablescape 

Tree in the breakfast room

A Santa I painted BC(before children) when I attended a weekly ceramics class.
A Santa cookie jar that a dear friend painted the year I taught her child.

My Nativity that I purchased at Sam's a few years ago.

I put a wreath on an aluminum bowl I have filled with coffee beans.

My front porch swing with the holly bush in the background.

Table in the foyer

One day I would like to really go all out on the fireplace but it didn't happen this year.  I only have a brick ledge to work with!

I used the "real stuff" in many places.

One of two stockings, did not get a shot of both, they are on the entertainment center  each side of the tv.

Potterybarn ornaments over the masterbath whirlpool

My Christmas cactus in bloom!!! I DO NOT have a green thumb so when anything blooms around here we get excited!

Christmas Vignette

I changed out the table in the foyer from fall to Christmas but could not depart from the old window:) I used items that I already had and cut pines, cedar, and holly from my yard. I decorated all day and only have about 1/3 out. My daughter laboriously glued these berries to these wooden letters.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving!  I have so many things to be thankful for everyday but mostly today I am thankful for family and friends.  God gives us so many undeserved blessings, I praise Him for the ultimate blessing, His Son.
We did not host Thanksgiving this year but I just wanted to share my breakfast table.
