I’m kinda, sorta finished….

Well, I have the trees up, decorated with ornaments and the outside stuff up but the tweaking continues. LOL!!  I have a few pics to show you.  I’m not the best at taking pictures so bear with me please…first is a couple of pics in my living room

Christmas 09 002

the foyer

Christmas 09 004

dining room

Christmas 09 006

reading corner in my bedroom

Christmas 09 005

The outside pictures didn’t take very well.  It’s probably the operators fault and not the camera—hehe!

Christmas 09 018

I added three smaller trees on the front porch

Christmas 09 021

Love my moose and trees hubby and I made about three years ago.

Christmas 09 020

Also, put a tree in the upstairs of our workshop

Christmas 09 003

This is a close up of a porcelain Santa that my Mom made me several years ago.  It is my most favorite Christmas possession.

Christmas 09 007

I don’t know how to make the pics clickable to enlarge them.  Hopefully, you can get the idea of how my home looks.  I’m sure I will change a few items around.  I would like to get some gingerbread men ornaments made to add to one of my trees, but not sure that will happen this year.   We have decided to have a Christmas drop in on the 20th so I am now planning what foods and goodies I will have.  I used to have a drop in every year and for some reason (not sure what the reason was now) I stopped.  Kinda looking forward to having this one.  I wanted to plan for a Saturday but all our Saturdays are already booked up so the 20th was the only day I could do it.  If you are in my area, you are more than welcome to drop in!!!  Come early enough and you can help me cook!!!  LOL!! 

Have a great week!!  Chatty Kathy

WOW!!!!! OK where do I start???? I love how you mix your prim with Christmas. Every nook and cranny is just fabulous. I wish I had the room in my bedroom for a reading nook and a foyer would be nice. LOL.

The picture with your tree in the workshop is awesome.

And the Santa is just precious. The display in the sleigh just shows it off.

It all looks great! And I love the Santa your Mom made. It looks perfect sitting in the sleigh.
Don't worry about making your pictures clickable to enlarge them. Most of the time, you can already do that with pics on blogs. I clicked on your's and they enlarged just fine for me. LOVELY! I really have enjoyed seeing your beautiful home. And I too, constantly tweak!
Have a great week!
