It’s official, we are ready for Christmas. The decorations are hung inside and out. A little bit more shopping to do and then I will be ready! My son contributed to the decorating as well by putting a wreath on his friend “Wickid Jack” (his spelling of “wicked”).
This year we have two trees – a traditional green one in the front window and a white and blue one in the den. When we got married, my husband started a tradition of having a white tree with a different color each year. We’ve repeated some colors, but so far we’ve had blue, black, purple, and pink. Next year I think we should do red!
In the entryway the little elves are ready to help Santa for Christmas. By the fireplace, a snowman is ready for a snowball fight (although my son pointed out that snowballs aren’t usually blue).
Santa is perched on some antique quilts, next to a basket of gingerbread men!
An antique grain scoop is the perfect place for some holiday foliage! This will be hung on the wall tomorrow – after I get the nails from the garage.
Last but not least, the fireplace holds lots of little Santas and Snowmen. Most of the items here were made by me – can you guess which ones?
Keep it thimble!
