Oh, WOW! I am in awe of your decor style & your ambition!! I love how you use ribbon w/ornaments & hang them in various places ...& I absolutely love that garland/balls/lighted that you moved from the hutch to the top of the stairs!

Your potting table area is just so festive ... is it protected from weather? Love it! The hanging basket w/ornies is cool! (I hung some in a big pine tree in my Secret Garden so am wondering how they will do in the cold/snow when it comes).

The kitchen window to the breezeway is AWESOME! Your letters above but the simplicity of the color & shapes of the hanging glass is perfection!! And the top of the armoire ...wow! Everything is looking beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, rafor! TFS! Jeanne S.

Everything looks wonderful and so festive, but my favorite would have to be that huge cage on top of the armoire! And the lighted ornament garland on the stair rail. WOW.
You are really on a roll.

Hey, isn't "deadline" one of those nasty words? I know it makes a person do things a LOT faster in a short amount of time. :o)

I forgot about the wreath & stars above your potting table! That is so pretty! Wow, you're going to have time to sit back & enjoy your decor! Love it! Jeanne S.

Wow -- it all looks GREAT! I love the potting bench! and the lighted garland on the stairway is fantastic!

I bought extra ornaments this year thinking I might hang them across the windows just as you did with ribbons.... but I haven't started on any xmas decorations yet. Today is the big local xmas kick-off event, so I imagine I'll be digging through boxes and bags later this afternoon. :O)

(fixed a typo... love the edit feature!!! :)
