more decorating done, picture HEAVY
These photos are in my personal album but thought I'd post here too. I know Candy said she had trouble seeing the photos before, on her laptop. So maybe some of you others did too? Anyway, I have been
trying to add ornaments and garland, and tweaking stuff the past few days. And still can't seem to get
done! But I thought I'd take some pix today and share stuff anyway.
I do feel like I'm winning the Battle of the Bins finally. I think maybe that should be an annual TV Christmas
show!! I bet it would be a hit with folks like us. LOL. (As long as the Winner didn't get a BIN full of more
My living-room mantel. I need another finial, I broke one of mine so now there's only two on the rgt end.
I didn't double the garland this year, nor did I finish adding ornaments today. I may not add more, depends
on how slow I am with other things this week. I had wanted to go to Michaels and get some of that wide
mesh ribbon to use....but not up to shopping or driving, so I just put some ribbon I had on there for now, but don't think I like it after seeing the picture. Oh, the wreath has 5 antique gold colored Cherubs on it. (from Michaels a few years ago, already done, and 70% off. Ipaid $12 for it)
My little silver tinsel tree with purple and blue ornaments on it, in my living-room to the left of the fireplace.
The big ceramic Santa and Sleigh piece was from GW last year.
This little mini Village reminds me of candy since its so brightly colored, so I call it my Candy Village.
The 4 houses are actually tealight holders.
And these are LeMax Santa, elves, and reindeer that I think are awfully cute. I don't have any of the actual
village houses that go with them, but maybe ONE someday. Not that I have room for any more Village stuff.!
Finally got the garland hung and decorated in my bathroom
This is the small glass shelf over the toilet. The frame is from Goodwill, and the Santa with an armload of teddy bears is a picture I printed off the web.
The new Santa on Horse, compliments of Kirklands via eBay, and thanks to Punk sharing her big Nutcrackers on horseback like this one sending me on the hunt.
This wreath isn't very big, but I put my shiny-brite type ornaments on it.
My Woodland Christmas on a tiny back hall table. The smaller Santa is VERY special, he was a gift
from an online friend several years ago. When she found how I love Santas, and saw my Christmas
ones, she said he needed to live with me. What really touched my heart is this Santa belonged to her
late brother who she loved dearly.
That's it for today.
