I finally got the Christmas tree decorated today, and the rest of the house, so I thought I would share some photos with you. (as always, click on the photo's for more detail.)
Here is the tree:
Here are two of my favourite ornaments, both given to me by my mother. To the left, the pink one is a Wedgewood ornament, and I just love anything Wedgewood. To the right is a Delft pottery ornament, which my mother got in Holland.
I have my three Santa's in the living room as well:
Here are the two Santa's I have sitting on the sofa.
In the dining room, are my snowmen:
In the family room is my Fibre Optic Tree:
Standing either side of the fireplace are the Nutcrackers (the blue cable on the floor is from a computer we have set up in the family room at the moment):
I have a neat way of hanging my Christmas Cards. I take down a plate or a picture down off the wall. I attach a piece of wool to the hook and let it hang down the wall.
I then hole punch a hole into the card, and thread a small piece of wool through the hole, and then tie it onto the long piece of wool that is hanging from the wall.
This way the cards are out of the way, but people can read them easily though, and I don't have to put any more holes in the walls.
