It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I've been sick for more than a week, so decorating had to be put on the back burner...but I finally felt well enough to get some things done around the house.

I bought this sled several years ago...not an easy task to find one in Texas.  I painted the Santa on it, knowing we NEVER use the sled.  I placed it on the front porch to welcome visitors.


I purchased this great German tree stand at the Tattered Bliss sale last year.  I have a very small tree where I hang my smaller glass and German ornaments. 


The tree is in an out of the way place so the ornaments stay safe.




I made this scratch board picture a couple of years ago...it almost looks like a Santa house!


A small winter village...this will be all the snow we'll probably see this year!

My Mom gave me these Santa's many, many years ago.  It's officially Christmas when they are unpacked.

I made a few Christmas bottles this year...


I like to swap out my wall pocket with this winter one.  I love the little bird!


My Christmas plates and Woodland Santa's.

I finished this Santa project last year right before Christmas (here). 


My husband found this cute little truck and my grandmother crocheted this Santa 25 years ago!


These are some of my favorite ornaments.  My mom gave me these...the fridge doors open


(there's a snowman in the freezer) and the oven has cookies baking.



Tree is completed.


Merry Christmas to all!


Till tomorrow...

The refrigerator ornament is the cutest I've seen. Love your special hand-painted pieces. Those will be someone's treasures one day. Merry Christmas.
