I think part of decorating at Christmastime is having a new "something" to look at in every room. Even if you have had things since your first Christmas on your own or just found it last year, it surprises you to see them again. The old things sometimes have the best memories attached to them.
Let's wander around the house.
First up and most important - the Reason for the Season.
The barn is setting on an iron tray. The nativity set was a gift from my mother-in-law years ago.
Around the kitchen I have a display of "Santa comes to Town". Below is the first one of the series. I made a politcal stand and quit buying them when they started to light them. I'm sure my little statement really hurt the company.
My first holy family. When we were first married and I didn't have one I went to one of those Home Interiors parties. Do they still have those parties? This was all I could afford, it was probably about six dollars. Love it still.
You can see the cake stand tutorial here that I made last year.
Did anyone else go through a counted cross stitch phase like me. Obviously it was around 1979.
Fitz and Floyd tumbling Santa's and a silver bowl filled with vintage ornaments.
I really am not sure I should have the tiny nativity ornament next to this cute framed saying.
But it makes me giggle, the saying that is.
Peace on earth and goodwill to men, is what I really mean.
