Show & Tell: Deck the Halls

It's time again for Mel's Show & Tell.  When you get done here, please go check out what the rest of the class is sharing.  We'd love for you to share, too!

We decorated for Christmas the week of Thanksgiving.  Last year, we were technically in the house by Christmas, but all of our stuff didn't arrive from MN until a few days later.  So, this was the first year that we were able to decorate for Christmas in the new house.   I was so pleased with how it turned out!  It's amazing what a difference a roaring fire, stockings and a tree can make to your entire mental state.  It was also so wonderful to have Andy's family spend Thanksmas with us.  Their stockings, and two for our dogs, Audrey and Gracie, helped to make the mantle feel full this year!  The house just feels warmer, and I don't think it's the fire! :-)

Thanks ladies! I won't fool you, though...just this wall looks good. The rest of the house needs MAJOR decorating help! ;-)

That is some tree! It almost doesn't look real. That's alotta lights.

Lin said...

Thanks! LOL...yah, it kind of is! But, it also has the "dew drop needles" that reflect lots of light. That's what I LOVE about the tree itself the most!
