Christmas show and tell

Here are some of my favorite holdiay decorations. Some of these are blurry but I like the glow of the lights over a clear too bright picture. I like to have lots of tiny lights all over the house. This little group is in the dining room and I love it. I adore me the vintage christmas ornaments.
I love theses candy canes made out of vintage glass garland balls. Laurie made them- she has the magic touch with this Christmas stuff. We found the snowman in my hubby's folk's attic. So cute- and probably pretty old.
I love our tree this year. It looks so big in the corner of our living room. I love it! I love the glass garlands and all the sentimental ornaments.
I found this nativity at a rummage sale last spring and think it is just perfect. So sweet I couldn't wait to put it out.
The kids and I made these bells out of egg cartons 3 years ago. They are one of my favorite decorations. remember having so much fun making them together.
We made these last year- another favorite. They are so cute and, again, we had a ball making them. Here is more info on them in case you want to make some.
These I made last year too and I love them hanging on our armoire where we keep my husband's computer. I love glitter! That is just some of my favorite things to have around the house at Christmas. I hate to take it all down in January. I will confess though that I leave the outside lights on until Februaryish. I love looking out and seeing the color twinkling at night. I hate the long dark days so I have to do something!

I love the blue and red colors together, so fun! I agree about the long dark days, lights do make it better. Have a great week! Christmas is sooo close!!!

Happy Holidays Sweetie! Your house looks super festive - and love the little guy you snagged from your in-laws attic! Hope you have a wonderful week.

Such pretty decorations!

We leave our decorations up until at least January 6. Like you, I really am bummed when they have to be put away.

Enjoy your Christmastime!

What fun and beautiful things all over your house! Thank you for putting the pictures up. I always love browsing through your blog. By the way, why not just leave the lights up through Naw Ruz?! The celebrating can just be for like half of each year that way. :) Love to all!

How I wish I were in Portland to do Holiday crafts and decoration with your family! Also waiting to hear where/when I can buy some "party Dress" to make something for my little party baby...

I leave the twinkling lights up longer too. One year it was how the midwife found us!

Some money can be saved by purchasing name brand Viagra online, as online pharmacies have lower overhead expenses than brick and mortar pharmacies, so they can afford lower retail buy Viagra . However, consumers wanting name brand Buy Viagra Online can expect to pay a premium.
