Merry Christmas.
Thought I'd show you some of my Christmas Decorations
around my house.
Hope you enjoy.
This is my new coat rack decorated with my sparkly trees.

Whoooooo's ready for Christmas.

This lamp gets changed with the seasons.
Now it's full of Christmas balls.

It's kinda hard to get a good shot of my mantel,
but this look will carry me not just through Christmas
but through the whole winter season.

I thought this arrangement showed up really
well against my wood wall.

One of my all time favorites is this mercury glass tree.
It sits in my kitchen window.
I got it at Homegoods years ago.

I decorate our tree with ornaments as old as way back in my childhood.
There's plenty of ornaments that my kids made
and now my grandchildren.
I do buy one or two new ones each year.

This is our moon tree. There are a few stars but
the majority are moon ornaments. I buy any moon
ornaments I can find each year. And they are hard to find.
My son-in-law always makes me a new moon ornament
each year.

This is a pottery nativity scene that I've had for years and years.
The stable was made by my dad.
It sits on my piano table.

This is a shallow cabinet that my dad built 
probably 30 years ago to fit in a special spot.
I just put some natural greenery and berries
in with my blue and white collection.

Well that's the end of my tour of decorations.
Merry Christmas to everyone
from my home to yours.

Hope you enjoyed.
Happy New Year.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father
Prince of Peace.

Though I'd share how my new/old table is decorated for Christmas.

I "borrowed" some branches of magnolia from
a neighbor and cut some berries from my nandina bushes.
Then put them in my green mason jars.

Here's another view.
I replaced the big leather chairs I had before
with some white ones I had in storage.
I can seat more around the table with these.

Plus they don't take up as much room visually.
And they make for a brighter look.
With the bench I can easily seat 14.
If I put 2 on each end it becomes 16.

Well there you have it.
I think she looks especially festive and lovely.
I love this table:)

Mightier than the thunder
of the great waters,
mightier than the breakers of the sea-
the Lord on high is mighty.
Psalm 93:4
