Christmas through the house

 Today I thought I would show you a few of our Christmas decorations we have set up through out house.


These wooden mittens are hanging on the front door.  Bob's sister made them.  She had leftover flooring pieces and decided to do something with them, and came up with these.  I thought they were so cute!



I have this little tree set up in the bathroom.



This is on a table in our living room.  The little nativity is one that we made when I was helping with our local MOPS group.  It's made to be toddler friendly.



Here's another little table in our living room.



In our hall is this card rack.  Don't you love getting cards?   Some of you might spot your card here.



This is on our dining room table.  I made the ornaments a few years ago using decals.




This is our dining room.  I love the way it looks in the evening, with the little tree in the corner lit up.  Hanging from the light fixture is a mistletoe ball which was given to me by one of my residents several years ago.  She has since passed and I like to think of her when I hang this each year.  Do you see the little star garland hanging below the clock?  That was sent to me by Connie from Crafty Home Cottage a few years ago.  I find so many Christmas decorations make me think of friends and family!



We don't have a fireplace, so our stockings are hung from a shelf.  I got new stockings this year and needed to find stocking tags.  I found some I liked but at $13 each, the price was steep when I needed 11 of them.



So, I ordered the wood tags from Amazon and wrote the names on myself.  I like how they turned out.

That's it - a little tour of Christmas at our house!

Of course I love it ALLQ Especially the wooden tags you made. The expensive ones could not have been prettier! Some favorites are the trees on the shelf, the metal houses, and the bowl of bells and ornaments. Your dining room is gorgeous!

I enjoyed looking at pictures Mari, so simple and elegant. My sister's are like that, taking after my mom. I am more like my dad's side, My family says it looks like they are in a country store with a lot of Disney. I hope to take pictures after I am finished with Christmas cards. You have a lot of cards. We don't get many though I do send several out.

Mari, your home looks so charming and I feel honored to have that little Garland hanging in your dining room. I had forgotten about it. I love decorations that bring back memories, wonderful things that have been handmade by people we love. I might just borrow the wooden mitten idea, do adorable.
Merry Christmas!
Connie :)

Very nice Mari. I love the card rack. It's a neat way to display cards. I usually string them across my fireplace but each year I get fewer and fewer. It's sad that many people in Canada have not been sending cards since the advent of email. Some of them sent ecards for a few years and now most don't even bother with that. I too have cut down but I do still send a dozen or so each year. I used to send 3x that amount.

Perfectly lovely as always! The tree in the dining room is just so special. I LOVE your dining room so much that, as you know, I made TG copy it, haaahaha! And I do see my card! Wish I was there to see it all in person. xoxo
