What with moving this past year, I was a bit overwhelmed when it came time to decorate. Where was I going to put everything in a house half the size of the one we moved out of? I have LOTS of Christmas decorations and thinking about how to use it all gave me a huge headache. So, I decided to make this an all snowmen year. I was able to purge about 3 boxes of things that just didn’t work. My original plan was to decorate with Santas next year, angels and gingerbreadmen after that. But….it took me so long that I may end up taking lots of pictures and re-visiting snowmen next year too. (Although, maybe it will be like childbirth…I’ll forget by next year). So, here ya go.
This little setting is right in the entryway.
Further into the entry…
I bought the garland on the tree quite a few years ago. In the other house, it was hanging on garland up high above the entertainment unit. I like it lower where I can see it. Those little faces make me smile.
This little chair belonged to my Mom and it was one of the few pieces of furniture that I kept. She always used to sit on it when she would put on her makeup at a little desk in her bedroom. The doll is one I made about 15 years ago from a Cheri Saffiote Payne pattern when her company was “Cute as a button”. Long time ago!
Across the hallway is the dining room.
If I knew Photoshop, I’d edit out the light switches! Oops, forgot to plug in the tree. Oh well, then I’d have to edit out the cords.
I just love these big plates.
I think that’s enough for today. More tomorrow.
