Better Late Than Never... Christmas Decoration Photos!

Our Christmas tree. The children called it
our Charlie Brown Christmas tree. It looks
prettier in person!

Dining room hutch and tea cart, ready for service.

A close up shot of my little hall table with books,
greenery and angel light.

The living room where we gather by the fire
to read and hang out.
Our basket of Christmas picture books.

Small table in foyer.

Coffee table in living room. Sit and chat a spell.

Our kitchen, looking deceptively clean at the moment.

Candy, cards and candles in the kitchen.

Corner window overlooking the snowy countryside.
I have a bird feeding station on the deck where we
can enjoy watching many different species of birds.

Okay, I know I'm late but I promised to post a few photos of the house decorated and here it is. It's up for one last week and then much of it gets put away until next year. I do keep the living room mantel decorated until spring and a few other decorations that I call "winter" stay out as well. I purposely try to make much of my decorating multi-purpose so that I can use it all winter long.

As much as I love decorating for Christmas, I usually have it all put away by now and I have to confess that it seems odd to still have the Christmas tree up. It's just as pretty as it ever was but I'm ready for it to be gone now. I favor a clean look and I'm ready to regain it.

By next Thanksgiving we'll be all excited about bringing it all back out and putting out the special things that have a place in our home. I love changing my home with the change of the seasons, don't you?

Gorgeous. And a nice peek inside the *new* house, too!

Thanks Kelli. You know you're always welcome to come and experience the "real deal". I think I am going to post a couple new photos showing what it looks like in the midst of putting away the Christmas decorations. What a mess!
