There was a time when I had Christmas decorations all over the house, but these days the concept of less is more works for me. Now I get out a few of my favorite things, different each year and just enough to create the spirit of the holiday season.
Come on in to see some of this year’s selections and stay for a cup of coffee.
I’m crazy about nativities and have quite a collection from simple
to wonderful handmade creations.
This one is my absolute favorite. Not only do I appreciate the woman in Nova Scotia who made it, I admire her color selection for each of the pieces.
Christmas and bells just go together and I have lots from which to choose. The cranberry ones are perfect for the season.
Snow globes are another of the little things I collect. Many of the Christmas ones play music, and when the daughter’s little boys are here, they think it’s great fun to have them all playing at one time. Quite a symphony that is!
No Christmas decor would be complete without a Santa or two. This guy has been around for years, and I suspect his appeal has something to do with him being handmade. Hmmm, is there a thread linking much of what I am drawn to?
This Santa appears to be worn from getting ready to deliver goodies to all the boys and girls so he is taking time out to listen to angels sing.
Except for a little one or two, Christmas trees are a thing of the past in our house.
Mentioning to my very good blog friend Shirley of Housepitality Designs we would have no tree, she created this one in her media room and called it her Lulu tree. I like knowing that across country there is a tree just for me.
While decorations are limited in our house, the good news is that not so much has to be put away after Christmas. There’s something to be said for that!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
