It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Well, it's starting to look a lot like Christmas around my house.  The decorating is just about finished - I'm still working on making gifts (I know, I know, I'm running out of time!)  So much to do and so little time.  The Christmas cards are all addressed, but we haven't been to the post office yet.  That is on the agenda for the first of the week.

I'll take you on a quick tour of most of the decorations in the house - I'll save some for a later post.
We'll start at the front door with a welcome to our home.

This is the main tree - we have three in the house (not counting the one that Dan is suppose to put on the dock - he is having problems with the lights on the top half, so it hasn't made it out to the dock yet.)  Anyway, with the location of the tree it can be seen from the front of the house, from the canal, and we can see it from our chairs.  Good location we think.


Entry way table.

Dining room table - I'm still not real happy with this arrangement, but I haven't thought of a better one yet, but I still have time.

Buffet table

Hoosier in the dining room

Guest bedroom
The wall hanging had not been hung over the bed when I took this picture, but it looks much better now.

By the way, this is another home made quilt I got from my mom.

My second tree - it's just a little tree in the guest bedroom and it has all my rocking horse ornaments on it.
                                                          It's a Rocking Horse Christmas!

I'll leave you for tonight - will have the pictures of the kitchen and the pool area on a later post along with a couple of the ideas that I have been working on for Christmas gifts (I can't actually show the gifts, as I think by kids still read the blog and I don't want them to see their presents!)

Have a great weekend!


  1. Very nice, the rocking horse tree is my favorite.

  3. i'm excited the rocking horse tree is in the guest room so that i can look at it while i am home visiting.


Rainy, Dreary Days

Well, I don't know what the weather has been like where you live but here it has been warm, overcast, and rainy.  We are having temperat...
