A few of us were talking about a fav books & I posted a pic on another thread ... so thought I'd start a link to see if anyone else uses Christmas or fav books in their decor.

This is a new version of 'Twas the Night before Christmas' ...with 'animated' pics on each page...gr'kids love it & it fit w/my Santa globe (making a list & checking it twice):

LR Shelf Santa 12.11

& here's my fav book from a few yrs back 'Stranger in the Woods' ...photo illustrations...I love it!

LR Shelf Deer Book CloseUp 12.11

And here's the book shelf wall in LR:
LR Shelf Deer Snowman 12.11

Got one to share with us??? I know Purplemoon posted a pic, too, on another thread. Jeanne S.

That's such a cute idea, Jeanne. Love you decorated for each book. What a fun tradition to have for the grandkids!

I LOVE your brown deer! And your Santa is wonderful and perfect for that vignette. Same with the Snowman and snowman picture. Just perfect. I commented in the other thread that I just tweaked mine and will have to take a new photo to put here. Tomorrow.

hugs, Karen

Looks wonderful, Jeanne. I've never used book s in my decor, but now you have me thinking! My youngest DD is a Librarian at a university I'm sure she'd love this idea

I got a free photo book from Shutterfly which I finally completed. I decided to title it "Christmas" since that's my favorite holiday, and the "theme" for which I had the most pictures. The photob book will rest on my coffee table during the holidays. I'll try to post pics after the invasion of the bins has ended. Right now they (the bins) are winning.

Jeanne, I love seeing books used. But I rarely use them. Both of your vignettes are wonderful. So glad you started this post as I missed your other post showing this.

Here you go, Jeanne. I tweaked the figures in front of Stranger in the Woods. Found the Snowman at GW, and had the two amber colored reindeer. (I previously had a clear one like them there.) The other book, Twelve Days of Christmas, seemed perfect for my little partridge figurines.
