More Decor!

This is the Dinning room(the old formal Living room)
We really use this room a lot more now that we have
so much space.

The Tree is 12' went with red & green decorations.
Gotta make a tree skirt sometime soon.

The stairway up.
The merry Christmas sign was made with the Cricut.
It's pretty big. The" Merry" is about 10" X 23". I forgot to measure the other part.

The mirror used to hang in my mothers house.
They moved I got the mirror.

Christmas Decorations

So the transformation from Thanksgiving to Christmas has happened!
This is the Family room. This tree is for the kids. Pink and
silver decorations.
I cut out the Grandchildren names for the Ornaments.
We live by the beach so everything tends to be beachy.
I had to make one more stocking this year. I made it but, after the picture was taken.
The blue on the mantle was my tribute to the boys. and the only color I had left
to decorate with.
This quilt was once, one of my husbands Christmas shirts.
I thought the fabric was so cute. I cut it up & made this.
Just the hallway.
This is the old dinning room. Now we call it the Library. I took the
dishes out of the china cabinet and put books in there( the rest of the year).
But for Christmas this is what it looks like.

Thanksgiving Decorations

The front door.
I cut and painted the pilgrims about 2 years ago. 
The door got a re-decorated wreath this year.

I decided to decorate the tree for thanksgiving.
We eat dinner in this room, so thought it would be nice.

This is my little thanksgiving display.
I have been collecting these houses since 1985.

Found this lantern at Ikea. Just added a couple of things to it.

The dining room table. The Turkey is a real Pumpkin, the tail & head
are wood cut outs and a little cloth hankie make up this guy.
The tall vase was from our daughters wedding, every Holiday it gets a new look.

A carve-able Pumpkin arrangement.

This is from my son, when he was 6 years old. He is 28 now.
 I put it up every year and send him a picture.
 He hates it!
Thats' why I do it.

This one had a bow on it, but it fell off.

Ribbon and a foil leaf. Sentiment is a just right stamp.
Shape is a spellbinder die.

This one I backed the leaf with paper then cut it out.
