Favorite Christmas Decorations....

Of course there are my mice-Santa mouse; Santa's helper mice; the new along with old Wee Forest Folk mice in my WFF case; I decorated my hall tree with a mouse Santa hat, flashing red nose and mouse slippers; and my toy shop (in a cheese box). All part of my favorite holiday decorations which will stay up until February. I didn't get everything out this year but the house looks festive, warm and happy! I hope everyone enjoys their decorations past New Years Day!

Countdown to Christmas....

The days have zoomed by! We hosted a family party last night so I finally finished some decorating. This year I find I lacked the energy to put out everything (darned bronchitis)...but the house looks very festive. I LOVE our new tree! We have a new artificial tree which allows me to display all my wonderful ornaments from the past forty plus years! Wow! I am OLD....and I have been a collector for most of my life! Plus, our cat who used anything on the floor as his personal place to relieve himself is now an angel kitty so I can use my gold tree skirt!

I hope everyone is taking time to savor all the magic of these days!

Treasure of Christmas Past...

One of my holiday treasures is a collage of our annual 'Santa' pictures. It took much persuading to get both boys to visit Santa every year until they were about 17. Then I gave up. They surprised me one year while both were in college with a picture of them once again on Santa's lap. I think that this year I will do my best to persuade my husband to visit Santa so we can send the 'boys' a Santa picture of us!
I love this picture collection so much that I have it in our bedroom year round. The years seem to have sped by~so glad we have the pictures to remember those sweet times.
