Christmas Around the House

Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!

Today I want to share some Christmas decorating I did around the house.

First stop, the entryway. Notice my little helper, Isabelle, at the top of the stairs. She follows me everywhere.  I only wish she could talk so I could bounce ideas off her and get her opinion. I'm pretty sure she has an opinion!

From the top of the stairs looking in to the entryway. I took a plain pine looking garland and wrapped it around the railing, then added lights.

I love decorating the railing.  It's the first thing people see when they come in.  Just add things here and there, until you get the fullness that you like. I usually buy things in bunches and then just cut them apart and add them in.

Here's my little dresser I have at the top of the stairs. The lamp and basket filled with pinecones, were already there.  I added the snowman, bulbs and poinsettias.  Buying the poinsettias in a bunch is a really cheap way to get a lot of decorating material, for a little price.

At the other side of the stairway I have this floral arrangement.  Again, just added things to it to get the Christmas feel.  Easy peasy.

This is a little table I have in my entryway.  I L.O.V.E. lamps!  I have them everywhere.  There is nothing better than low lighting to make a house homey.

I added some beads to the shade, a few items to the table, and done!

Here's a little tray I have on our island.  Notice the lamp theme.

Corner area on the kitchen counter.  Yep, another lamp.  Maybe I have a problem......

Shelf above the kitchen sink.  No lamp?  How did that sneak past me?  Next year!

This is the top of my refrigerator.  I know I am probably really strange, but I have to decorate the top of my refrigerator.  It's like a shelf calling out my name to be decorated.

The desk in my kitchen.  Did you see the little star "lamp".  OK, seriously, I think I have a lamp addiction.

Our Christmas tree.

And lastly, our fireplace.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you liked my little tour.

Merry Christmas!
