I realized this afternoon that I had written several post about my favorite Christmas decorations but had not shown my home decorated in all the holiday slender.....well, all that I had the energy for this year!
Hope you enjoy the little tour today, I did not decorate as much as I usually do, time was the issue this year.
I had to include this photo of Sophie. My brother gave me this stuffed little dog one year for Christmas and it looks just like my Sophie. Well, this one item in my home causes the most uproar between Sophie and Dora, they go into attack mode every time they see it......my son put the dog in the tree to see what Sophie would do, she was waiting patiently like she sits at the base of the trees in the backyard for squirrels. It was too funny.
Here are a few of my jars and ornaments that sit on the counter in my kitchen.
My snowman platter on my kitchen counter.
Here is a photo of my Bathroom. I have a little bit of Christmas decorations in here as well. See those little cows? I have had those for about 22 years. I think they are so cute.
I just added a bit of greenery and berries for a festive look to this wire wall decoration in the same bathroom.
Here is the wall by my kitchen table....Maybe you remember the story behind the advent calender.
One of my very loved vintage tablecloths. I purchased some greenery at Sam's and put it in the red vase so the house smells like a real Christmas tree.....and more vintage jars and ornaments......can't have too many of these.
This is my antique hutch that belonged to my husband's Great Aunts. I have my salt and pepper shakers and other holiday vintage items displayed here.
This is a shot of my living room. I made the wreaths, and of course I had to have a bear theme in my Christmas wreath too.
More jars and balls? Why yes, I have more. I love the way they look with the white lights.
Here is my Bear nativity set. And the large bear was a gift from my secret Santa. He is just so cute!
I display our Christmas cards on a hanger that covers the closet in my living room. Some years, the card holder is full of cards....so far not so much this year.
Here are our stockings. I sequined our names on the stockings. Sophie and Dora share one large stocking.
And at last, our tree. It has lots of vintage ornaments, quilted ornaments, multi-colored lights. This is a slim style tree, it works well at our house as it does not take up too much space. But I miss having a real tree.
That concludes my tour of the Holiday decorations this year...like I said I scaled down a bit from what I normally do, but it still adds a festive touch. If you enjoyed your tour today.....just leave a donation at the end of this post and leave your comment for your admission fee! LOL
