Christmas at my house

Hey Y'all,

Today over at http://www.kellyskornerblog.com/ she is asking us to show our Christmas decorations. I love, love, LOVE Christmas decorations. Normally I put up 12 - 18 trees. It is a sickness, I know. Most are 5 to 6 foot alpine trees that I decorate and place in groupings in each room. But...this year I have decided to do things a little different. I put up one big tree and just a few others. Below are some photos I just took.


First off, I got this in the mail today for Piper. This is a Christmas dress for next year. I adore smocking and the Nativity scene at the collar is so pretty and hard to find on clothes.



Inside my tree I hide two snow owls. A baby and a mommy. This is the baby.



This is the mommy owl. These things scare my Megan to death. She is sure they are watching her at all times.




This is a little arrangement on top of my piesafe in the kitchen.



Here is the fireplace. I do the mantle different each year.


This is my main Christmas tree. I have wrapped zero presents this year.


Here is how I top my tree. I kind of create a different look each year with all kinds of flowers and sprays and I use a bunch of feathers too.






This is jeweled fruit display I created on my buffet in my formal dining room. I really like jeweled fruit. I keep some of it out all year long.


I did my table this year in silver and black. the room is more of a golden hued room but I really wanted to use the silver.


This is a tiny tree by my front door.


This is a little group at the entrance of my foyer.


On a buffet in the kitchen I placed my Dickens's Village pieces. I wish I had a bunch of these pieces.


I hope each of you have a blessed Christmas this year.


Love,

Cindy
