Deck the halls.......

I know it's early...but a girl has to do, what a girl has to do! And, since the next few weeks are super busy with one appointment after the next,  I decided to get my Christmas decorating done this past weekend.
This is the first time I've used the color combination of red, chartreuse and turquoise. I was surprised at
how many ornaments I have in those colors.

I love this little tinsel tree that a friend gave me!
One of my favorite old Santas.
This vintage Department 56 choir boy has been part of my decorating for many, many years.
I collect old reindeer, and like to use them in vignettes like this one.

I have so many ornaments that I've collected, but his one has to be one of my favorites! My daughter-in-law, Maria, gave it to me.

Sparkle and tinsel make me happy!

I don't know what I like better....the expression on the face of the little deer or the Santa.

These little snowmen from Midwest went perfectly with my color scheme this year.
 The stairway is always a challenge for me, but it matches the tree, so it works.

I really treasure this snowman family - it was created by my friend, Penny McAllister  (She lost her battle with cancer a couple of years ago, and is missed by so many, including me.)
This old Santa makes me smile!

Wow! It looks so beautiful!

We have to do a major house cleaning and then we will start decorating. We use a real tree so that will go up in about three weeks.

Oh how lovely! I am so ready to put up my trees this weekend... the day after Thanksgiving I will be ready!

Your style is beautiful and I love the gorgeous ornie from your daughter in law too. It's very special.

Happy Thanksgiving... then Christmas!
