Karla's What do you Love about your Holiday Home Party

Pin It Now!

I'm joining in Karla's Party today. For those of you who read my blog regularly, I'm sorry to say you have seen most of these pictures of my Christmas decorations already. I did add a couple new ones though.
I love the warm glow of the Christmas lights on my bed.
On the other side of the room I have a small tree and Santa...a pink Santa!

The warm glow from my chandelier draped with pine and ribbon.
These was the first Christmas decorating I did before we got our tree. I've since changed things a bit on the coffee table.
I painted my miniature pumpkins white and added glitter. Now they look more like Christmas and less like harvest time decorations.
I have a new love...vintage ornaments. I've filled this large glass jar with some that I found this year at a thrift store.

My staircase is draped with pine garland, lights, poinsettias and ribbon.

I love blown glass ornaments. I buy my kids a special ornament every Christmas. This cupcake is my 15 year old daughters.
Below are some more vintage Christmas balls mixed in with some new red ones.
Here is my dining room all decorated for Christmas...

My little Christmas village. This was a gift to my son when he was little. Someday he will have this in his own home. I don't think his college roommates would appreciate it now.
A little bit of red and green in the corner of the living room.

Our Christmas Tree...


A Victorian kissing ball in the kitchen...

I hope you all enjoyed coming to my little apartment for the party! Thank you Karla for hosting this!
