It was lovely and warm last night so the dogs and I went out and took some pictures of the house lit up. I got a little carried away this year. The side porch is so bright that I do not need a lamp on in the livingroom.
These are my Grandmother's antique bells. They are old and getting a little cracked but they still look beautiful blinking off and on at night.
We put Frosty on the side porch this year, he is usually in front. It took some getting use to, he scared the heck out of both of us a couple of times when we saw him through the livingroom window.
Duffy & Penny may not look excited but they love the lights.
I finished the diningroom yesterday. I kept it simple on the pine cupboard. These lovely candle holders are made of iron and I only paid $6. for them at Value Village. I think they look great on the cupboard.
I pick up these little trees whenever I see them because over the years I have lost some usually due to mice in the storage area making a meal out of them. I like the to add white lights and keep it simple although I do have two decorated. I incorporate things I made when our son was little. I made him the snowman and he made me the caroling mouse when he was in grade 5. I adore it.
I got a little sidetracked yesterday so I did not get the big tree decorated. I am off to work on that now. Maybe I will take a page out of Charlie Brown's book and just put up one red decoration. Sounds good to me.
