My House this Christmas

Just a quick tour of some of my Christmas decorations for 2011!  I purchased two spools of ribbon on sale at Hobby Lobby and NOTHING ELSE for Christmas decor this year!  Hooray!  Everything was obtained in years past.


I shared my entry with you last week......

(Well, "yes," I did purchase the fruit, this year.  So make that - 2 spools of ribbon and fruit.)

Here are some cedar limbs in the kitchen chandelier.....



And stockings hung by the chimney staircase with care....


Someone sweet gave me this rosemary topiary as an early Christmas gift this year....

 


And I made this Christmas card holder last year from an old picture frame....


A few of my windows have pinecones and ornaments hanging from ribbon.....

 


And I've used lots of greenery from my yard (and my neighbor's yard!)....

 


This cute little Santa is placed by the same door, every year....


And here is a small snowman collection.....


And a Santa collection.....

 



"Grouping" similar items is more appealing to the eye than "scattering" them around the room.

 

I've been making simple rosemary wreaths - here are a few small ones on my bird wall....

 


And one in the guest bedroom......

 


And my Santa mug collection ......

 


I also made the ornament wreaths last year and hung them in my den, this season.....



 That is all for now!  (Everything else is too big a mess!)

Have a wonderful week!

Everything looks so pretty and festive. I especially love the way you hung pinecones by ribbon in your window.

I've looked at this post a couple of times now, your home is wonderful, so very inviting.
I LOVE how you have the old vintage style light bulbs in a gravy boat, thats wonderful! I want your Santa door stop, its GREAT. So many fun Christmas ideas to take away from your blog.

Looks great from the front door all through the house! I would so love to spend the entire month in your town every year!

OH good - I'm glad there are other nice people like me who prune for their neighbors. I even went so far as to do a little pruning at work the other day, too. Giggle.

All kidding aside, your home is cozy and inviting. I love the door (would make a lovely addition to my linky party). I also love that iron bed - reminds me of my childhood.

Thanks for sharing!

Happy Holidays,

Everything looks wonderful. I really like the rosemary tree and the little dog below it... so cute with the bow.

Babs said...

Oh, forgot to tell you I LOVE your front door. Fresh greens and fruit are so "southern" and my favorite way to decorate.

Leslie said...

It all looks wonderful. I love the little wreaths on the pictures. I love the sunroom with the painted canvases. Great Job.

Merry Christmas.

Love how you have decorated your front doorway and the rosemary wreaths, so pretty.

I wandered over from Nester's Home Tour. I LOVE the fruit above the door. What a great idea! More than that though, I noticed all of the furniture. The piece holding up the Santa Claus collection....Beeeyoooteeful!
