Christmas at My House

I love Christmas decorations.  My house is just filled with little bits of shiny every where you look.  I tend to simply add my decorations in amongst my usual decor and it gives it such a full look. 
Starting in "my room".  My room is my sanctuary where I do my needle felting and simply go to relax.  It is filled from wall to wall with my favourite things.  I keep the Christmas decorating to a minimum in this room but I do have a little tree with some favourite blown glass ornaments.
I usually change these from year to year on a theme basis but this year is was simply a mix of favourites.
Then out of my room and into the main part of the house.  These little guys sit on my antique sewing machine (which was a gift from my parents when I was about 10).  It's one of my favourite treasures and will always be in a prominent spot in my house.  Two of these little dogs remind me of a long passed beagle named Biscuit.
I found this little chair in sofa in Winners years ago and they are one of my all time favs.  Aren't they cute?  I want a house someday where life size versions of these would fit in.
This collection sits quite comfortably on our dining room/kitchen table.  Above it is a simple black chandelier that is draped and dripping in crystals and snowflakes.  You can see our wood stove burning in the background.  Sigh... cozy!
Into the kitchen with a window sill covered in two of my favourite things.... animals and blown glass.
I could have added a dozen pictures!
The other window in the kitchen can't be left without blown glass!
Still in the kitchen.  Our house is open concept so the kitchen is a big part of our house.  This was a purchase at a charming little shop that used to be an old pharmacy.  Full of little shelves and interesting architecture.  In it is my Mom's holly.
Sitting on the island is a childhood favourite.  We used to have hot cocoa in these mugs after a day of skating on our pond.  These bring back soooo many happy childhood memories.  In the background you can just see a bit of the chandelier I mentioned previously.
Full circle heading back into my room (the door to my room is beside the pink china and behind the tree are the stairs to the studio and bedroom).  My Christmas tree!  Christmas is not Christmas without a tree... a real tree.  Cut and drug home by DH and put up that same night.

And that is just a small sampling of Christmas at my house!  Merry Christmas to all of my internet friends and customers!  I wish you all the very best over the holidays and the coming New Year!
