Christmas pics to share and link to my Santa and Snowgirl dolls....

I'll try to leave this post longer on pictures (there are LOTS!) and shorter on words if I can... :0) Enjoy!
My Santa and an old quilt bear.....
I realized I never shared finished pics of the entryway after we did all the work on the front room this spring. The flooring is still the old vinyl, but this winter we are going to carry the wood flooring through the entryway and also replace it with the carpet on the stairs. We will also be replacing the dated railing, too. We're waiting to do the base trim against the wall until the floor is finished....
In case you were wondering- the spots on the rug in the entry are just melted snow....LOL.
I love my redware crock! I got it back in October from the Primitive Corner. I got the last one they had and they said it was backordered until next spring. I was a lucky girl.... :0)

The view into the front room from the entry...
Santa came early and gave me an early Christmas/birthday gift (My b-day is on the 27th..)......this GORGEOUS pie safe! I LOVE it!! And its the perfect fit here in this little corner...
I love how the punched tin panels have rusted and only a bit of the silver finish remains...
That's another one of Kathy's bears.....I have three of them and they are wonderful. I even have a teeny mini one that she made from old quilt just like the others I have...
The snowgirl hanging on the cabinet where I took her pictures.......LOL
Our tree......we have had such crappy, cold weather here lately we never made it up on the mountain. The kids would have been miserable and cold, which would have defeated the whole point of going to cut our own tree...so we went to the tree lot and Sage picked out this white pine.
One thing we didn't realize until we started to decorate it was that while it is a beautiful tree with ultra soft needles, you can't hang heavy ornies on it. I had to omit my 4 inch jingle bells because it looked like a weeping willow and all the branches are slender and droop very easily. LOL. We hung only lightweight ornies on the outside and buried the heavier ones inside the tree.
Our fireplace and mantel......I love those stockings hanging there. I got them back in September from Olde Farm Creek and I'm glad I did- I heard from a friend she has sold out of them now....

I did end up getting a chance to edit the auctions and got my snowgirl and Santa on eBay finally....click HERE to see them...
I have a few Christmas decorations in my kitchen and such, but I'll save those for another post- this one's long enough. I should get going.....I have some signs I have to finish for the shop in town, then get Sage from school in a bit. Hope you liked my pics! :0)

Awesome! Love the new cupboard. Your one lucky girl.

Angie said...

Wow, we have lots in common! I see lots of the same things and the same decorating style!

Awesome job on the redware crock. You were one lucky girl for snatching that up! If you don’t mind me asking… did you make the candy canes that are in it? They are very cute!

Beautiful pie safe! Again-- lucky girl! =] I also have lots of Christmas trees, lit and unlit, all over. There are just so homey, aren’t they? Speaking of Christmas trees-- the feather-like tree that has rusty bells hanging from it in the Merry Christmas pot... I have the exact same tree sitting in an almost same pot with the exact same bells hanging on it! I loved it the minute I laid eyes on it. It had been sitting empty while I was pondering what to do with it. I finally bought the rusty bells for it last week and put them on. I love the way it turned out!

Your home is very cozy and inviting! Thanks for sharing!
