In today’s post I’m going to show you a few of the things that say “Christmas” at our house. And, this post will be included in Boomama’s Christmas “walk” here beginning tomorrow.
Our neighbors across the street put lights on this beautiful, big evergreen, and every time we open the front door we can see it. We probably have a better view of it than they do! It’s beautiful, especially when it snows, like it did a few days ago.
More by accident than by design, the entryway ended up being mostly about Father Christmas.
This is the first year I’ve put up a little tree in the entry.
I found this great Father Christmas tree topper at Cracker Barrel!
The “tree skirt” under this tree is really a poncho that my mother crocheted for me in the 70’s! I think she would love it that I’m still finding a way to use it after all this time.
A Christmas cookie jar. But, I’m not baking cookies this year, so it might as well make itself useful looking “cute” under this tree.
The landing going upstairs.
The railing of the loft, overlooking the entry.
We were discouraged from buying this print for over the fireplace, because it’s a winter scene! We loved it when we bought it, against that advice, and we still love it. In the summer, when you look at it, you just feel a little cooler!
The tree in front of the living room windows.
My mother took ceramics in the 70’s (didn’t everybody?), and made nativity sets for many family and friends. And, she promised me her set after she was gone. So, this is a nativity set she made.
My one “live” arrangement. You can’t beat the scent of real evergreens.
I love making these little candies. They not only look “Christmasy,” but they taste good too! The recipe for them was in this post last Christmas.
Because we live on a small lake, we put a wreath in the window in the sun room that looks out to the lake.
Blurred, I know. But, I wanted to show how the wreath in the sun room and the tree in the living room look from the back yard.
My “pot of sticks” that I use as a card tree. I really like this way of displaying cards.
May you have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful 2009! Merry Christmas!
