    Christmas House...

    HI... Posting this for my friends in the 8.0 Boomerang Swap. This is most of my main floor decorated for Christmas, I will have to search my photo files for my 1st floor and bedrooms. I have them, it just takes time. LOL. Thanks for asking to see these.

    Dining room, 7ft slim tree with Santa's ... Hallmark. Also, the garland hanging behind it, House ornaments on it, Hallmark.

    Hallway Tree, "Family Tree" all framed pics of family from great grand parents to our grandkids. 50% Hallmark frames.

    Here is a Closer view

    Powder room tree

    Son's Marvel Comics tree... (Superman, Batman, Spiderman etc). sits on piano in family room... Hallmark

    Son's Football Tree... in the Den... Hallmark.

    My dining room tablescape. Not Hallmark, but I love it. LOL

    Snowmen village... Hallmark.

    Living room tree, 8ft Douglas fir, with 90% Hallmark. (a mom has to put on those special ornaments etc too! But, there is about 500 ornaments on this tree alone! My master piece! :P

    I want TINSEL!
    Dining room Mantle, all Hallmark but the Dancing Santa

    Miniture Hallmark tree. All Hallmark

    Celebration/Holiday Barbie's ... Hallmark

    Living room mantle. My Nativity.

    What wonderful decorations. We haven't decorated in a few years. Our youngest Grandchild just turned 10. We have gone to Daugther and Son-in-law's as their Granddaughters, Mom & Dad have come the last two years.

    Thanks for sharing Boom buddy! Very pretty.

    Since you are taking requests (he he). I would love to see a closup of the folded quilts in the 2nd and 3rd pictures...especially the hexagon star one.

    Thank you.

    Is that tree in the living room in front of a door?!? You obviously don't use that door, lol. What do you do when someone rings the doorbell?

    I have three doors, that is my front entry... When we bought the house, we ripped out the sidewalk and a bunch of ugly landscapping and put in all new sod, and we have not yet put a sidewalk in, our drive pulls right up to my wrap around side porch and the door to the kitchen, everyone uses it. And in the winter, the yard has snow and ice... so they use it even more. I haven't always put my tree there, some times it' next to the fireplace, and or over by the stair case. But, I like it there. Dh has warned me, when he pours the driveway and the walkway.. I won't be able to do that any more.

    What makes it nice is that a BIG tree, and ALL of the presents (we have BIG Christmas) can go in there, and I still have my whole living room area for peoples.

    WOW!!! Those are amazing. I even noticed that you change out the pictures on the walls too. You are one dedicated Christmas decorator.

    The first one was hand pieced by my grandmother... And she used man flour sacks in it.

    This one was hand pieced by my great grandmother, when I took it to the quilter, she said it was some of the best stitches she had seen in her life. It's 90X90

    These are great! Makes me feel like such a slacker with my own decorating.

    It all looks so nice! Looks like Santa lives there. Love the quilts in the photos too.

    Thank you for sharing. It is all so beautiful. Just curious, when do you start decorating?

    Since I don't celebrate Halloween, I like to start near the end of October... slowly bringing decorations out.

    I need to show this to my Ladies Circle Friends at church. I have a small, 10 room house that I put a tree in every room (some rooms get 2-3 trees, smaller ones). They usually come to my house for our December meeting after I have it all decorated. They think I am out of my gord for doing all that! I love it! And...it seems as you do too! It is so very pretty!

    Love your decorations! My cats would like it if we put that many trees in our house too! I don't really decorate the inside of our house for Christmas, just a tree and some stockings. The outside is another story tho. Our outside holiday pics are posted on our website http://www.twistedvegas.com
