Thought I would share a little bit of my Christmas trimmings! I really love decorating for Christmas but work and other commitments have really made it all a bit late for me this year.
I finally finished most of it up this weekend.
So this is the tree in the living room. I really love country decorating, but this tree is quite glitzy considering. Every year I enjoy unwrapping all of the ornaments and remembering who gave them to me or the story behind them. These are a few of my favourites.
This angel that I showed you in my last post was from my dad.
This one I cross stitched years ago, and it's always been a family favourite.
This three tiered bell was from my Nana and Papa around 20 years ago. It is so delicate and fragile, every year I am amazed that it hasn't gotten broken. And it brings me great memories of them!
This red glass skate is absolutely beautiful! It was from a dear friend.
Another new one from last year, I love how it catches the light.
This little snowman is so cute, it's been around for a while from another good friend.
I have two of these red glass hearts. They are so pretty.
One from a friend and one from my sister. They know me well!
This little silver Santa was from another good friend! So pretty!
A jingle bell wreath!
This one was new last year, from a very close friend. She knows my tastes so well.
I love the pearls on it.
My Jim Shore Santa collection along with a Santa cross stitch that I did years ago.
My new little snowman wall hanging!
A few more itty bitties! Love these!
My Jim Shore nativity.
And some candles and greenery sitting on a little quilted runner on the coffee table!
So, I'll show you a few more later from the other rooms in the house later. For now, I wanted also to show you a few from our cantata last night.
We've had a great weekend here celebrating the birth of your Saviour!
