Christmas 2011

Well I have finally uploaded my pictures I have everything that is going to get decorated for this year just moving out here in September to the farm boxes are everywhere in the basement and well digging thru them just to find this stuff was a chore.  We still have alot of work to do in the house like all the flooriing and painting the walls I am not real fond of the 2 walls that are painted some orange color then my ugly marlite bathroom which I may decorate up a lil for Christmas also!
Hope you enjoy my home it may not be all sparkly and glamorous like allot of homes at Christmas but is what I enjoy and to me it is warm and cozy!
Don't those speaker wires look just wonderful grr but he has to have the surround system
I keep her out all year around hope to find time to finish making my jello mold ones to hang on the tree as well to match her!

Vintage scale I picked up at the antique mall a long time ago and a friend gave me this beautiful bowl I hand dipped all my pine cones in cinnamon an vanilla wax they smell so lovely

My wrought iron sleigh I picked up at a yard sale over the summer

Love my santa's but don't have enough room to display them hopefully I will get the rest of my decor hung then I can display them next Christmas

My make do mantel oh how I would love to have a fireplace again but have to settle with a wood burner in the basement and it keeps us warm and cozy

Love my star

Old bucket I found at my sisters neighbors when they moved wanted my tree in it but the regular tree was too big and my small one did not look right so I thru some burlap down on the bottom added some pine garland and voila may need to add some berries if I can find more

Kissing Mr and Mrs Clause had to come out
Last but not least I decorated my kitchen island I use my plate rack stand to display my vintage strainers just filled them with pine and berries a few old ornaments and pine cones I collected thru the yard
Thank you for visiting and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!


  1. Your holiday decor is awesome!
    I love your tree with all of the vintage kitchen utensils on it and your sweetie pie tree topper doll is too cute~

    It's kinda fun taking your Christmas things and reworking them in a new home I think. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and keep doing the same thing over and over, year after year.... but when you move? Everything looks new again and sometimes things work out better in the new location!

    We have wires too!!!!
    (Old houses) :)

  2. Wonderful Christmas decor goodies!
    Love that kitchen utensil tree.

  3. Enjoyed your pictures - fun, creative ideas! Merry Christmas!

  4. I have the same kissing Santa and Mrs. Clause. I made them for my grandma about 37 years ago!
    Merry Christmas!!
