love it.

Nativity scene and the candy cane story
on my other end table. The house is
smelling alot like Chrismas with the cinnamon
 candle holder burning.

One of my favorite little stools.
Love the plaid pillow.. Made this
pillow cover [just like the  Thanksgiving
one]. and put it on the pillow that
was stuffed with  plastic bags..
The Christmas car/tree print was a free
printable buy Craftberry Bush blog/Lucy.
thank you Lucy. I had an old  picture
frame that I painted .. So a free Christmas item.

I love, love this wood sign.. I found this at
Morning Tuesday. thank you Lisa , for
telling me about this fun store.

Christmas House Tour... Part 1

Christmas Tree is up... My cabinet is
all filled with my collection of Christmas
music boxes.. A special time for me , to listen and look at them and  remember who gave them to me, And remember the Reason for the Season..Jesus!!!!!!!!! The nativity one on top, was
given to me by my son , 20 yrs ago. It plays
about 10 songs and the  people & animals  go
around and look at Baby Jesus. Beautiful.

Table in its Festive   Time.

This beautiful  Santa Claus Tray,  was
given to me by my daughter, several years
ago.

Ginger bread houses [boxes with tops, from
Dollar Tree]

Christmas Pillows..
I made these from a fabric by Susan Winget.
 I love all the things with the truck/car  loaded
with the Christmas tree..[Which I discovered from Lisa.

Thank you Lisa.].
