Christmas Around The House!

Welcome, please come in and see some sights around the house. Stroll on
through and feel free to hit play on the Playlist to listen to some Christmas
cheer while you peek into all the corners!

Outside on the porch...this only took me 3 and a half hours to

decorate and I only had to wait 2 weeks for the temperatures to
move up past freezing in order to do it! Let's face it when the
thermometer dips that low I hunker down and don't want to go
outside. At all.

The inside tree. This tree is basically Man Cub proof! Anything breakable is
placed at the tippy top of the tree. Trust me when I tell you there have been
SEVERAL things to come off the tree already. First the candy canes, then the
trains and finally he's beginning to spot the fancy breakables and wants to
get his hands on those. Badly. So far they've been safe.

Thanks for stopping by to visit and have a great weekend.
I hope you get all your shopping done, that's what I intend to do!

Just found you tonight and loved your tour of all your beautiful decorations. What a beautiful home you have and the way you took your pictures and displayed them are really wonderful.
Glad I found you

Hi Sares! Beautiful! that's the only word that comes to mind. I love the porch, it looks like something from a magazine...I know all about cub proofing except it's more like cat proofing here. My cats love the sparkle, I'm forever shoooshing them away. So far they haven't tried to shimmy up a tree yet... but I'm waiting....Have a nice weekend! Hugs, Jennifer

Good Morning Sares...
Everything looks so festive over there. Just absolutely beautiful. Loving what you did with the porch.

Each little vignette looks so beautiful. Isn't it fun just to go around setting things up and making it look so bright and beautiful. They are corners that make us so happy. I guess I just don't do this enough year round.

As for shopping, have tons to do. I should have started earlier, but just didn't make it. I keep trying though. Heidi Girl is good, she has hers pretty much done.

Take care sweetie. Stay warm. We are expecting a high of 75 today. Another beautiful day in the desert.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Sares, I really loved the tour. It lets me take a better glimmer of who you really are. Your home is really pretty and I spotted your baby dog right off the cuff. The porch is so goodness. I'd love to stand on your doorstep and see you open the door and smile...I'm over at Santa Claus Lane today! Hearts to you...Jacqueline

You have so many gorgeous Christmas decorations! Your porch must be the envy of the neighborhood.
