A Little Bit More Christmas......

I can't believe we only have 3 more day till Christmas and Santa will be making his rounds!  Here are a few more of my favorite  decorations around the house, heck, all my decorations are my favorites! Isn't that how it's supposed to be?

This year I did something different on the top of my tree.  Instead of our usual woodland angel, I put this little doggie Santa holding his bones up there and love it (this is where he stood till the tree was ready)

I have a large collection of Nutcrackers, these 2 are the Marine and Air Force ones that I got for my sons with my Scottish man peeking out from behind

One of my favorites is the English Rider NC holding his saddle

These are framed vintage photo Xmas cards that I have found over the years,

Another framed favorite Xmas card and 2 hand carved moose

My carved swan decked out with a little wreath and a rusty (hard to see) tin Noel

This little Santa was made by my Mom back in the 60's out of felt and a toilet paper roll

One of my snowmen, after Xmas sale at TJ Maxx  $5.00

Some of the Snowmen and Santas on top of my chippy green cabinet

This Santa and Snowman were the very 1st Christmas decorations I ever bought back in 1970
My daughter thinks the poor snowman is quite spooky! I on the other hand think they are both very sweet!

Don't you just love this Santa picture peeking out from behhind my tree? 
It's a Xmas bag that was framed

These are the kid's stockings on the bannister, the tin letters I (love) got after
Christmas at Restoration Hardware on sale, the stocking are from Hobby Lobby after Christmas

Here are a few more things in the kitchen

My sister got me this little moose with all our names on it a few years ago

My vintage Santa and Snowman were great finds at the flea market, $3.00 each

Gingerbread ornaments from Cracker Barrel after Christmas sale
They are sitting on top of my vintage scale, which helps remind them not to eat to much!
(Do you think it will work)? 

Kitchen table centerpiece

I  may not post again till Monday after Christmas, all depends on how busy we get around here.  Hope you all have had a wonderful Holiday Season.  Thanks to all of you who visit me, I  love all your sweet comments and the new friends I have made this year!   I really love visiting all your great blogs out there in bloggy land and seeing all your beautiful photos that inspire me to try new things!

PS. tonight I will be getting the best early Christmas prestent, check back tomorrow to see what it is!!
Merry Christmas!

Till next time......

You have so many decorations!!! Your house must be like a winter wonderland this time of year! :o)

We have one nutcracker. My mom got it for Lexie when she was 4. I find it a little less creepy than some others I see around. There's something about those teeth on them that freak me out a little bit! :o)
