Just a wee bit more ...

A bit more decorating took place this past weekend ....
The tree finally has it's ornaments, here a few of my favorites

 The little village took it's place in the dining room ... I think the Gypsy Prince likes the village better than the Christmas tree ... he's rearranged it a few hundred times already ... maybe it's the fact that it's a great place to hide your Lego mini-figures?

A little sparkle for atop the dining room chandelier 
 The nutcrackers have taken their position on guard over the fireplace in the living room ......
 While the nativity rests peacefully  on the sofa table.
 The stockings have been hung on the staircase this year ...
I'm really lovin' on my new French inspired stockings this year!!

Okay that's all for today ... not sure if time will allow me to post more home pics ...
There are still presents to make and wrap..
cookies to bake ...
and Christmas movies to watch!

Have a happy day and thanks for visiting with me!

A slow start ....

I had all good intentions of finishing my decorating this week and sharing with you ... well, sometimes "life" has a way of making it's own plan! I have made a lot of progress and will have a lot more to share ... however, for today I'm posting a corner of the foyer - facing the back door.

 From this angle you can also see a portion of the staircase leading to the second floor.
Okay .. I wanted to make good on my word that I would have SOMETHING to show you this week!
I'll be back!!
Wishing you a fun filled weekend ; )

I'm joining up today with Jen Rizzo's house party ... a holiday home tour.
I'm sure a lot of you had a peek at the awesome homes she featured through out the week last week ... now it's our turn! You can see my post HERE ... it's a previous post from a few years back.
My plan is to do a little "before" and "after" tour this week ... and today is the "before".
Check back for the "afters" and in the meantime check out all the holiday homes on the link list over at Jen's...Enjoy!
