There are many words that come to mind when I look at these photos, but...it is all part of the Christmas fun!
The dining room BEFORE the madness!
Last Christmas there was a church pew in front of those windows on the left side of the picture...
Now lets head upstairs...
This would be the Christmas section. Yes, I said section. HA!
The upstairs is still waiting to be a work in progress and that is how I explain the missing floorboards!
(those boards were removed when the house was rewired)
How about the creepy Santa?? I picked him up at a yard sale this summer.
He wasn't for me. He was for our friend Steph, the one that finds my elves really creepy!
Oh, by the way, her son LOVES this Santa. he he he!
A closer look.
YES! The trunk is full too!
The trunk has been in my family forever. There is a number on the leather.
It is a neat old trunk. It served as a table in my apartment that I had before we moved into this house.
The trunk holds pieces like the nativity scene, the ceramic tree, and other odds and ends.
I picked up this box of bottle brush and other assorted trees at a sale this summer.
Sometimes getting the decorations out is like a little miniature Christmas.
I tend to forget about the pieces I have picked up here and there since the decorations were packed away.
Ok, are you ready for it???
There WAS ONCE a table in this room. Promise!
Ready and waiting in the kitchen...
Ready and waiting in the living room...
Another look at the dining room.
Looking at these pictures, I am thankful it is done!!!
Does your house get 'trashed' before it is holiday beautiful???
Have a great day everyone!
