Christmas Tree & Decorations

After a much needed break from helping my parents… tree is up and my decorations are out.  I didn’t put out all of my trees this year because I was just plain tired, but for the most part it is all out.  I have one tree that I normally put out with cinnamon sticks and orange slices with rice lights, but I couldn’t find that tree.  Hmmm, maybe I will find it before next year rolls around (lol).  Anyway, here are some pictures of my tree in the family room.  I snapped the pictures before I was able to hide the cords so excuse the mess.  I also attached a few other pictures of the decorations around my home and a few close up pictures of my Christmas tree ornaments.  I love this time of year!!

Here are some decorations that I have around my home.  This Santa is in my entry way…. you might have seen him as my blog header as well.

I had my little snow girl in front of my checkerboard, but then I made a snow girl made out of a gourd and decided that she would look better up there.  Isn’t my snow girl gourd cute?  Gosh, isn’t that a mouth full?!?


Here are some close up pictures of my gourd .  I thought she turned out real cute!

Are you anxious to see more?  Well, let’s take a look – ok?

Hope you enjoyed all of my Christmas decorations.  I have them scattered here and there throughout my home so there is a little Christmas cheer in every part of my home.  I also had to show you a new beauty that I purchased before my Mom left her old house.  I had my eye on this bowl rack for some time and well…. I finally bought it.  I just need to load it with bowls now.  If any of you gals out there see any bowls or are selling any in your shop please let me know.  I need a couple wood bowls to fill my rack up.  Of course they would need to be a rather good size to look right.  Here is the black beauty!!  Isn’t it pretty?  I am not sure if you can see it, but there is some red in it as well.  Very pretty!!


Well, I better run for tonight.  Hope you all are recovering nicely after eating all of that turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie.  I know that I am doing just fine, but could probably go for another piece of pumpkin pie right now (lol).  Mmmm, with lots of Cool Whip!!

Blessings, Lisa

You sure have been busy Lisa, every prim ornament looks so nice, I especially like the rabbit for Christmas! Love your bowl rack and the bowls will be such a nice addition to it, I hope you show pics of it when it's complete"_

Sandy said...

WOW, thanks for sharing Lisa. Everything is looking really good. Don't you hate it when you put something away and then can't find it??? I think we all end up doing that some time or other.

I really like your bowl rack. Before you know it, you will have it filled right up :) That's the fun part.

Have a great week!

Everything looks so nice you have such nice large pieces to decorate with. I love your Santas. I have a lot of Santas and Snowmen but some of them aren't as prim. I like your bowl.

Lisa, your home is just gorgeous with all of your home-made goodness! My favorite display is the little twig tree in the box with the gingers. So simple and sweet.
And congrats on your new bowl rack. I'm sure you will fill it to perfection soon.
Have a great week!

OH yes - I did enjoy all those pictures Lisa!! So many wonderful prim ideas too. I am glad you had some time to decorate your own home after working so hard for your parents.

The snow girl gourd is the cutest idea - LOVE her! Love it all!

Good luck finding the large bowls. Some how I know the prim bloggers will help!

I just love all your decorations. You did a great job displaying everything.Love the gourd snowman!

Hi Lisa, Thanks for visit my blog. Most of my bowls are founded in TS here in VA, but I have two that I found in Marshalls. They came in natural wood color, but I changed them with paint and you are a master making makeovers. Go to kitchen section probably you can find some. Bye, Evelyn

I love your snow people!
I have been wracking my brain since we moved to decide what kind of curtains to put up on my slider and two unfortunately very modern windows, the photo of your window behind your tree looks great, thanks for inadvertently lending me a hand deciding what to do!
I always like reading your blog Lisa, your humor and talent shines through!
Happy December 1st! :)
