Some of My Favorite Things

Now that the decorating is done I wanted to share some of my favorite things.  Our decorating is pretty traditional.   We designed and built our house ourselves.  We are on a lake so wanted something on the lines of a barn or lodge, so it does not lend it's self to cottage style.

 I do love cottage style so this year I made a vignette in a glass house in all whites and silver.  The Eiffel Tower is a favorite of mine, so I made my take of Christmas in Paris.  I am linking this to White Wednesday at Faded Charm Cottage.

This is my favorite ornament on the tree.  I bought her at a flee market several years ago.  I think she is the most beautiful angel.

My daughter, sis and I always exchange ornaments at Thanksgiving, this year my sis made me this fantastic cone.

These are a few of my favorite things on the mantle.  My husband made the Santa for me for Christmas several years ago.  H sculpted the Santa, sewed the clothes and carved the rocking horse.  I think he is pretty talented.

Here is our tree with Santa beside it.  I think Santa was a store display, not sure.  Our grand daughter loves him.  Our little dog Cricket barked at him for awhile, but now just steers clear of him lol.

I am hard at work on Christmas gifts now, but wanted to share a little of our home with you all.  I love seeing all of yours.  Good night to all of your and happy Thursday.

Hugs Jackie

Can't believe another year is nearly over. Your Christmas decorations are just beautiful, Jackie. I especially love the glass house and the Santa ... really beautiful pieces to get me into the Christmas spirit.
I'm still dreaming of a white Christmas, but it's raining all the time:(
