Christmas Decorating Has Begun

I began on Friday to tear the house apart and started decorating for Christmas. Every year I say it's going to be simpler this year, and then I start and its so fun and everything looks so charming and delightful that I can't help myself and I just keep decorating. Sorry for the blurry photo above. I took it a couple of times and I couldn't get it any clearer. This is the cupboard I store my quilts in and on and the whole thing got cleaned off so I could hang the stockings from it.
My fireplace generally displays photos of ancestors and there is a painting that hangs above it. All that comes down to display a white village that I LOVE!
The dining room curtains come down and lighted garland and big striped candy styrofoam balls go up with some glass snowflakes.
They sell these big letters at a local discount store and you can paint them any color you want. Then I thumb tacked ribbon on the back to hang them up with.
I moved a piece of furniture in front of the bay window to watch the deer from, but it needed a few pillows on it. I made a simple pillow cover from an old tablecloth with holes in it. I cut the table cloth up and cut out tree shapes and stitched them on. It was a quick and easy project that I think turned out very well and didn't cost me a dime. I hope to make another one for the other side of the bench and put a few store bought Christmas pillows inbetween. I'm working on a few more things I hope to show next week. Live Well, Judi

  2. How sweet. I love seeing what other people do in their homes. I've downsized my decorations but I love them so I'm happy to enjoy them from afar. I missed talking to you the other night. Time flies.
