Merry Christmas everyone!! So, I’m a little behind. 🙂 We celebrate until January 1st. I took a little break from longarm quilting and the computer to enjoy Christmas and family. It went by so fast!! Wow! We visited family and family visited us. I thought I’d share just a few pics of some of my decorations before it’s time to take it all down.
These are my mini Rudys. I used my big ones as models here. I added two more this year. The one with cute wool and bells and the one made out of burlap.
I always place them on the window in our downstairs. The famous window that we brought my longarm in through!! I even put a few Santas in our bathroom downstairs.
Looks like Santa left his cane. I have to give a lot of credit to Scott. He did all the beautiful tile work in our home!!
On top of the pie safe this year. I scaled the decorating back a little this year. Just a bit.
See my little prim twig tree? I love them! I bought two in November while on our girls’ excursion in Wisconsin. I purchased them from JJ Stitches. They were the steal of the century at only $12!!! I decorated mine with some little candy canes.
Yes, that’s a photo of the girls with a sheep when they were not quite 2 1/2 years old. I know it’s not very Christmasy, but I never take it down. I love that picture. It’s textured like a painting. I thought the sheep was going to be a baby, but it was nearly as big as the girls!! Took forever to get the picture because it kept running away!! LOL!!!
Not all my decorations are prim. I like a little red sparkle too. Usually, I put a little Christmas village on this desk. We have collected some antique pieces over the years, but this gorgeous desk I inherited from my grandma. I used to play “office or school” on it all the time as a child.
These are our Santa Bears. I collected a few, but decided I didn’t really enjoy finding a place to store them all. I always have them sit on this antique bench. It’s another piece from my grandma. It’s 12 feet long and one solid piece of knotty wood. It’s a prim lovers dream. I was fortunate enough to be the only one in the family that had the space for it. As a matter of fact, we finished our downstairs with a wall specifically so it could go there.
Last, but not least, the photo on this year’s Christmas card.
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!! And thank you so much for all the more than kind comments left on the Anniversary Quilt post!!!! I can’t tell you how much they mean to me! You guys are the best!!
