Christmas around the house

Today I am linking to some parties! The Nesters
and Rhoda's Christmas Vignette Party

and Between Naps on the Porch's Holiday Home party.

My front living room is brown and turquoise so I added turquoise touches to bring in some sparkle.

I opened the blinds to get more light in and Mack had the best time looking out the front window. He makes sure noone walks down our street without him telling them about it.

I added a clip on ornament to my curio cabinet in the front room.

My foyer tree.

In my bedroom I have a nook that I use for sewing and an extra computer.

In my bedroom

The pillow is my daughter's old sweater that I wrapped around a pillow. I haven't even sewn it yet.

The kids take turns adding an ornament to the banner each night as we count down until Christmas.

This is in the upper hall.

This table and mirror are also in the upper hall.

we will add gumdrops to the tree as a project later this month.

the gingerbread house is slowly disappearing.

my reindeer plates

they are so cute!

my everyday Christmas plates

we eat off them every meal after Thanksgiving by candlelight

even if it is Burger King

my buffet in the foyer

my great grandmother's dresser in the foyer

my foyer tree

I used a train set and some old dolls under my foyer tree. I want a 12 or 15 foot tree when we can afford one.

The kids wrote down activities they want to do this month and we put them on the card holder. As we do the activity we take the card down. Slowly we are getting Christmas cards to put up in their place.

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to you...

I love all of your decorations, but especially your sewing room tree. It is so pretty.

I also like what you do with your Christmas card holder... letting the kids put activities on the holder, and removing them after you complete the activity. I might use that one next year!
