Holly Jolly time

So in between batches of cookies over the weekend I also pulled out a few more decorations. Come on in and I'll show you. Amanda had an assortment of my snowmen on their usual place and I added the garland on the railing. I used to add light to the garland before but I skipped that.

Just another shot of the tree. I got that star to finally stand up on the top but now I need to find an extension cord because the darn cord on it isn't long enough.

And I dressed up the mantle on my fake fireplace a bit. I also put a holly leave garland on the picture
The Firplace is flanked by Mr and Mrs Snow who obviously know the flames are of no danger to them.
When I was looking at this picture I couldn't figure out what the little white blur was in front of the fireplace. After looking at it for a while I finally realized that's Duke's tail and you can see his head in front of the coffee table.

Come back tomorrow and I'll show you a close up of the mantel which holds my newest craft project.

Woof! Woof! Just curious how's DUKE with those snowmen on the steps. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Pat said...

Lovely, lovely! I love seeing houses ready for Christmas - your decorations are fab! xx

I was wondering the same thing as Sugar's mom...if those snowmen were within Chloe's reach, she would probably be bringing them to me. She doesn't harm any of her stuffies, she just carefully carries them to me and sets them down!! It's so funny! Your decorations are just beautiful!!

Duni said...

Oh wow, the tree is gorgeous! And I just love the snowmen lining up along the stairs. Wish I had one of those!!

Antonella said...

You are definitely decorated - at least we got the tree up!!! I did the same thing with the garland on the railing... didn't add the lights :-0
Hugs, Antonella :-)
P.S. couldn't find those "light stars", but I guess you have shamed me into posting some pictures of our tree :-)
