Oh, the weather outside is frightful...
but inside, it's so delightful...
Our Christmas tree is in the corner of the living room.
We don't have a mantel, but I decorate the bookshelves
on each side of the armoire like little mantels.
I'm sure there is a name for this decoration.
It is one of my favorites. When you light the candles
the heat causes the propellor at the top to spin.
The shepherds and wise men then
rotate around Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus.
Hark the herald angels sing!
The nativity takes center stage.
I love my big, lit wreath in my kitchen window.
It's decorated with teapot and teacup ornaments
that I've collected in various places over the years.

I used a mirror as a base.
I hang all my glass and vintage ornaments here.
More garland ornaments.
My front porch can be found here.
Thank you for coming to see my decorations.
I will be posting more as the month progresses.
Believe it or not, I still have more to do.
Look for: nutcrackers, window seat decorations, more nativities,
snowmen, lit houses, our Jesse tree, and what ever else happens
to come out of the boxes:)
