Scenes From Around the Livingroom

Hello and Merry Christmas!
Welcome to our cozy little home.

Our decorations don't change to much from year to year. I might 
add a little here or a little there, but for the most part, it is the same. 
I have actually downsized the holiday decor over the years.

 Here is the entry way. 
Nutcrackers to greet you and make sure you sign the guest book. 

 My Dad's copy of Handel's  The Messiah. 
He sang tenor for many years.
 Not quite sure how we ended up with a copy of it as the inside has a lable that reads 
Property of The First Baptist Church of Jefferson City MO. 
hmmmm .... shhhhhhh!
 The coffee table makes a nice landing for Santa's overflowing sled. 

This table reminds me a little of the big department store windows at Christmas time. 
My mom would drive my dad crazy until he would take us into Chicago to see the windows. 
That was when we lived in a suburb outside of  The Windy City.
 
 Santa is taking a little break and wondering how in the world he 
got all of those toys packed in the sled to begin with!

 Look at that face! You can almost hear him asking himself,
"Can I get one more teddy bear in there?"

 Here is the little pine hutch. 

 More nutcrackers.... do we have a theme here?




The Troops On Guard!

Next the tree...

I'm joining Marty for Inspire Me Tuesday

Liz, you have a lovely collection of all things Christmas and a magical touch in displaying it all. I hope you got to see the windows at Marshall Field's...they were the best (Macy's now). Your coffee table reminds me of those! Beautiful!

XO,
Jane
