A bit of Christmas at my house.

Here is a peek into my house at Christmastime........Of course there's more, much, much more, but hey, you have to start somewhere.
Welcome to my Holiday Haven!



Look at those amazing wreaths! I just had to make them last year, since I only had one lonely wreath that I had made for our last house's single front door, but when you have French doors you have to take advantage, right?



Watch out for that Mistletoe hanging in the entry way, Just to the left of the doors and the Mistletoe, my bedroom, I know, perfect placement.





And then there is my precious Rudolph! My grandma painted him FOREVER ago. He hung in her house for years while I was growing up. There is a music box behind him, you turn his nose to wind the box and then he plays.....you guessed it~ Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! I know too cute! Well she passed him on to me a few years ago and I display him proudly every year! I'm not sure why I got him out of the 26 other grand kids, maybe it's because I was the first to give her great-grand babies!

This year she painted this cute little advent count down! I know I'm spoiled and I love it. This year she gave me that as well as a handful of hand painted ornaments I'll post later.
Now I have to hurry home and get more snapshots of my Christmas world to share with all of you......
Can you imagine stockings hung by the fireplace with care, well, I guess you can see those if you squint past my mistletoe. How about newly created Christmas art projects fresh from a First grader's backpack! And My grandma will surely be making a repeat performance, most likely a few times over......
I can see it now, that eager gleam in your eyes, for now I'll let you dream of sugar cookies with frosting and sleigh bells ringing, and children singing......
