    Christmas decorations, finally have time to post

    I love to make decorations and I buy some too and every year I add to my collection even if it's from goodwill where I find some great bargains. We have two big (20 ft) blue spruce trees out back and it was too cold for me to get out there and decorate them this year but the heavens decorated them with the most beautiful snow so that was even better. I could just sit on my sun porch and enjoy the beauty of it all.

    Your decorations are wonderful. Glad I don't have to pack them up and put them away.

    Thanks guys, I will share my lazy secret, I don't undecorate any of the little trees, I just zap a clear plastic bag over them and put them in the attic and each year all I have to do with them is remove the bag and put them out - Easy, Easy.

    You really decorate. I like it but I am too lazy to do much anymore. Very pretty.

    I love the pictures of your beautiful home and of your view, like a real life Christmas card. My mother Helen Grafeld was big on decorating even after she turned 90 and still lived alone. I wish she were here to see your photos, she'd love how you've decorated. Your first photograph (table in windowed area, red & white placemats) is about as inviting a scene as I can recall seeing. Thanks for posting.

    I love your view of the snow outside. Especially since it was 93 degrees here today.

    I agree!! it looks like it came out of a decorating magazine (except warmer and friendlier) I love Christmas and decorating for it too.

    I'm a place mat person, and that's the first thing I noticed in Picture #1 on the sun porch - not much sun there, but I loved them place mats. Gave me a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your beautiful home.

    The pictures are great. Like others, my eye was caught by the placemats. Did you make those as well? We were out of town over Christmas so did very minimal decorating... one small tree in the living room and it is still up. Reminded me of my mother's decorating. She loved Christmas and the decorating. She was known as the Christmas Lady at the hospital she worked at because for nearly 30 years she was in charge of the decorating. She also had a tree in her basement that stayed up all year long, just got covered in a plastic bag! Happy New Year everyone!

    I love the veiw from you windows! I'm from Wisconsin and normaly it would look just like that outside, but we've been having a mild year. I think we probally only had 2 inchs of snow this season, and most of it is all melted.

    Beautiful pictures of your trees, both inside and out. I agree about Goodwill (or any other thrift store) being a great source for ornaments.

    Love your Christmas decorations. Your house looks so festive. I quit putting up a tree or doing much decorating several years ago (we don't have kids) and, in fact, gave away the tree and almost everything else early last year. Wouldn't you know it, my dear goddaughter announced in March that she was pregnant. Since they spend Christmas Day with us, I've got to start building up my Christmas decorations again and get tree so it will look Christmassy when the baby is older. But it will be a lot of fun now that there's a little one around again.
