It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Decorating our home for Christmas has always been a challenge. I don't have the decorating talents of the Victorian Parlor, so I just do what makes me happy!

The fireplace...
I love poinsettias and lights

The guys are posed to greet you in the foyer! Junior is counting the days until Christmas...
Over the years I have collected a lot of stuffed Santas, snowmen and reindeer and my challenge is to find a place where they can sit and observe. I can't put them on chairs or the floor due to a certain puppy who might just convert them into chew toys (yes Liz, I'm talking about you:)

So, for this year, they are perched on top of the china cabinet in the dining room.
These guys will be moved when Liz arrives

Best wishes for a joyous Christmas season! And happy decorating!

I too have a Santa collection. Made out of every conceivable medium there is. I have not put them up for a couple of years. They are for my second daughter, if I can remember to give them to her. She has a huge house and all kinds of little niches to put things in.Things look cozy and so welcoming. Blessings for the Christmas season.

The poinsettias and white lights at the foot of the fireplace is a nice look. And your collection of Santas and snowmen is so cute! I know how you have to watch out for the pets... they go after the strangest things! :-)
