IT's Beginning to Look Like Christmas...Part TWO!

My Front door with a simple wreath with red bow....at night I have a spotlight which really shows it up from the street!
The hearth in my family room with the Nutcracker standing guard!

I love my Christmas plates that I purchased at an Estate Sale many years ago.....these are by CHASE and are embellished with 24 karat gold. I can use these all winter which makes it nice!



A corner in my kitchen......the wine glasses were sent to me by my niece as a joke of sorts, but I LOVE them......One of them says, "My Party affiliation is COCKTAIL!" Too Funny!



THe plates again......How did that happen??





This crazy INTERNET.......a repeat too!



I bring these ANGELS out each year with delight and place them on my piano..........Aren't they lovely?








For several years, I have placed FRESH garland on my mirror in the livingroom.......I just LOVE it!






Fresh garland on my mantel in the LR with Blue ribbon and gold birds that I have had for years.......added white lights since I am not having a tree this year..........







My family laughs at my Sporting Santas which I have collected, but I still put them out with pride and a laugh or two! This one is a fisherman!












Here is my GOLFING Santa .....isn't he just the cutest??









Last but not least, my CANOEING SANTA which is my fave!











LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I SNAPPED THIS PICTURE THE OTHER DAY OF A PLASTIC LIZARD MY HUSBAND USES FOR FISHING AND A REAL ONE THAT THE CAT BROUGHT IN! CAN YOU TELL WHICH IS WHICH? THIS SAME CAT HAS ALWAYS GOTTEN IN MY HUSBAND'S BOAT AND BROUGHT IN THE FISHING ONE SO WHEN SHE BROUGHT IN THE REAL ONE AND IT MOVED, I LET OUT A SCREAM AND GOT MY CAMERA! LOL!





Blessings to each one of you and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!
