Christmas Decor Tour for 2009



You have seen my front porch garland in an earlier post, here........





And my santas.........





And more santas..........




And you saw the mercury glass, here:


NOW - for the new stuff -
Here is my snowman collection...........





And another little winter scene..........




And a cute santa my then 12-year old (NOW 13 year old) clone painted.........





Some greenery and old christmas tree lights in a silver bowl.........





And the stockings hung by the chimney, stairs with care.





And our tree .........




(frasier fir)

I would love to have a second tree (fake) for the front of the house.


But that will just have to wait for another year or two.


Meanwhile, here are some close-ups of a few of my favorite ornaments.









In my opinion, fresh greenery is KEY!


This may not photograph very well, but I love putting magnolia in the chandelier.
This is my kitchen table lighting - I use the same ornaments tied together with the same ribbon, every year.

And here is a little fresh boxwood in some silver mint julep cups.


Another "key" is simple round ornaments.

Here, I have combined the two (fresh greenery and ornament balls) with some pinecones in a trifle dish I rarely use for food because I always forget it is in the cabinet.


Easy Peasy.

Oh Sweetie...
Just absolutely beautiful. What a wonderful job you have done decorating this year. Just beautiful.

I love your snowman collection. I love snowmen also. They are just so darn lovable to me, once I learned about Frosty, there was no stopping me.

Your stair banner is so beautiful. What a great place to hang the stockings. I love them.

As always thanks for sharing. Please stop by and say hi. I love it when you visit.

Country hugs...Sherry

I'm voting for the tin can snowman with earmuffs and your progeny's prodigious Santa painting.
