More pictures of my home!!

 I guess I got busy and forgot to post a few more pictures for you to see. I do have all the decorating done and I have been done for a while but when I saw so many of your pictures it made me want to take them down and start again. i am starting to really like the all white Christmas decor that some of you are using. I just don't know if I would be happy with them but then again they are so beautiful.
 It is so much fun getting to see your homes and hear about your plans and see all the baking...my baking will start next week but for now I will be watching what you are all up to...
This is our aluminum tree...it brings back such great memories..or maybe I should say feelings. I love it and every year I debate whether to use this one or one of our other trees but for this year here it is.

The rest of the pictures will be of the back porch. We have a closed in porch on the back of the house and I have it decorated with a red, white and blue theme.
My youngest just finished this Lizzy Kate...I just love it!


I think that is it for today.. it was sunny today so some of the pictures are a little light but I think you can make them out.
 I am trying to enjoy the process...but today I am very tired. What I had planned and what I am going to be doing today are not the same. I could use a little nap but I just don't want to waste the time! lol
 Hope your celebrations are cheery and bright!

If this tree has many memories & good feeling then it is the right tree. Good memories & feeling are precious. I have been catching up reading & your staircase is amazing. Oh my the beautiful fireplace & wonderful stockings hung. The post about your child singing the baby to sleep. Littles ones have a special way of touching our lives & bringing comfort to us. Touched my heart. Tear jerker. About 13 years ago a friends 3 moth old baby died. I often think of all the first holidays she missed & all the holidays she missed. About a year later I had a baby myself & she opened her home for my baby & two younger ones to be baby sat. Years before that I had baby sat her oldest daughter who was by then in college. It just amazed me how loving she was even after losing her sweet baby. Blessings!

We love our aluminum tree, too. And I agree with you on the all white look---I love it but I know it isn't for me. I love the color!

Thanks for stopping by and say hello...I too decorate every room! Yours is great and I love the aluminum tree! You know there are people out there that would pay a fortune to have one!

Some times I think I would love all white decorations but then I think what would I do with what I have? So this year I tried creating a very small corner of white...LOL

Happy Weekend!

Your decorations look lovely! I do love the rustic look to them, I especially love the cross stitch! I didnt get any stitching done this year, I think it will be my new year resolution! lol

You've been a busy elf decorating your home so beautifully for Christmas. Do you ever have a Christmas Tour of Homes in your town? And have you ever been one of the homes in the tour? Maybe you should have a Christmas Open House!

I went back to look at your holiday home. It is so beautiful and festive! I am still working on my decorations and have a party here in Wednesday evening. I posted my tree on my blog TheCranberryChronicle and will be posting more as time goes by this week.
