Christmas at our house

Welcome to our home!


Come in and I'll show you some of the things we have out for Christmas.
~~~

This is a photo holder, that I use to hold cards. Isn't it fun getting nice mail?
~~~

Here's our dining room, with a few Christmas things on the shelves. I put small ornaments on the branches I have in the floor vase.
~~~

This cute, round little Santa is one of Bob's carvings.
~~~

I've been collecting these stained glass angels for several years.
~~~

Laura made this nativity set when she was 15. It has sheep and even a few chickens!
~~~
I love snowmen, and here are a few of them. The one in the middle on the bottom is a candy bowl.
~~~

Here's our Christmas tree. Tomorrow I'll show you a few of our favorite ornaments.

Mari, everything looks so pretty! Is that wreath one of your own creations? I love the snowman collection, they make you smile just to see them!

Saija said...

LOVE it all! I'll take some of those snowmen off your hands for you, okay? You probably have too many...

Tell me that paint color again, please. I want to think about it for a couple of rooms in my house. I am so getting ready to see color instead of builder beige!

That Santa is just darling!



Thanks for the tour, Mari. :-D

Brenda said...

Thank you for that nice tour!
I, too, love snowmen. Mine unfortunately are still packed so I won't get to put them up 'til next Christmas, Lord willing. Oh well, they'll seem like brand new again.

Kathy said...

I TOO want to know the paint color...the faded clay color.

Thanks for showing us your Christmas beauties! I especially loved the nativity your daughter made. : )

Susan said...

Thanks for the lovely tour of your Christmas items. Your tree is absolutely beautiful and everything is lovely. I especially like the glass angels since I'm an angel collector.

Thanks for sharing your Christmas decors. They are so meaningful and so precious...as the stories behind some of them are special. I love the nativity scene done by Laura! And I still can't believe that your husband can make lovely wooden ornaments! The glass angels, the snowmen... oh everything is just so beautiful.

Would love to see your tree at closer range tomorrow.

Love
Lidj

I was about to comment on how that round santa was the cutest Christmas decoration I have ever seen, then I saw the nativity. Absolutely precious!

Gorgeous!!! The angles are so pretty. I love the Santa, the snowmen, everything...

Although I'm not much of a shopper I've been looking all year for one of those card holders. I found two in Holland, but they were not holiday ones. I'll keep looking because I love it. If you ever find one let me know!

Love everything. Next year you can come do my house!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I loved all of it!!! The santa is adorable! I am a snowpeople collector too but my problem is not having enough space for them all. Your tree is beautiful. I can't wait to see some of your favorite ornaments.

Betty said...

I love the nativity, too! Did she make it out of clay? Or carve it out of wood? That's a real treasure.

Sandra said...

Oh my I just loved looking at your decorations. Maybe I'll do this too!

Lynn said...

Lovely, Mari!

I love that you or your family made so many of your decorations. That just makes them even more special.
