Special thanks to Karla for hosting ~ What do you LOVE about your Holiday Home Party today.
The party started hours ago but I thought I'd join in on the fun. You can check out all the other party goers by clicking on the picture to the left.
The stockings are hung on the mantle with care!
Love the nutcrackers ~ the tall one my mom & dad sent from Germany. The little ones are from my sister in law ~ LouLou.
More pics of my mantle
I love blown glass ornaments. Most of these are from
Old World Santa that I painted on an old window
My husband and I have had this tree topper since our first Christmas and although it's a bit small for this tree it's hard to change it out.
More glass blown ornaments on our tree
Remember in all the hustle and bustle of this time
that Jesus is the Reason for the Season!
When I was younger I remember our tree being decked out with these ornaments - my mom gave me about a dozen different ones a few years ago and I love em!
The two little teapots are Portmerion ornaments that I got while visiting Stoke On Trent in England.
I just had to try my hand at glittering a pear after seeing there them over at Sugar Bear Designs.
I actually collect snowmen but didn't put too many of them out this year. With 2 new dogs and a busy household I went minimal this year.
I won this arrangement at BUNCO a couple of years ago and adore those feathers and toys in it.
I hope you enjoyed a little sneak peek into my holiday home! Don't forget to go by and check more out at Karla's Cottage here.
I taught a painting class this morning - we painted Pansies - one of my favorite flowers to paint!
Sandy - this was her first class with me
