This is a look at a corner of my living room. I have to admit to you that my Christmas decorating stays mainly in the living room. I did extend it a little to the kitchen area this year but for the most part the living room is where it stays.
This is a favorite Santa that I bought. He had a fun bottle brush tree in his hands but he was red. So...I took out my handy paint brush with some pink paint and he turned out just like I imagined he would.
In the background you can see a sweet vintage Santa dressed all in white.
These tiny angels are some of my favorites.
Next I decorated the top of my piano. While out estate shopping one year I found a nativity scene that I just loved. The pieces were a bit bigger then most, and it was only $5.00. I had every intension of selling it but it just never got out of the house.
Next to that I have a little village where my Pinecone Men live.
One of my favorite things to put up every year is from my sister-in-law. A beautiful wreath made from vintage ornaments.
This year our tree was decorated in vintage Christmas balls. We usually have other ornaments on the tree but this year was different. One tradition we have is every year I take my son out and he picks an ornament for the tree. It is usually a Hallmark ornament. When he was little they started out being from the Peanuts line and last year they went to the Nintendo ornaments. I guess I can see him aging every year, when I look at his choices.
A few years back one of my son's teachers had some items from her grandfather's estate. She set up a little gift area where the children could pick an item that they could give to their parents for Christmas. These sweet elves are what my son chose.
