~CHRISTMAS - Part 1~

Good Morning, dear friends! 

Yesterday I spent the entire day decorating!  I only planned on doing some minimal displays here and there, but once I opened up all the containers, that plan was forgotten! 

So armed with my trusty step ladder and some Christmas music, I rolled up my sleeves and went to work!

These are photos of my kitchen window and who better to start with than......SANTA! (an Arnett Santa)

Painted sign on old barn wood!!  LOVE that RED!!!

 On Dasher!! Reindeer I made from a Netty Lacroix pattern.  

On Dancer!! Another Reindeer I made from the same Netty pattern!!  LOVE his antique coverlet blanket!!

"All hearts come home for Christmas!"  Sweet little lighted house to welcome you!!

LOVE Arnettt Santas!!!

Sweet Face!!

Bottle brush trees

Love the sprinkling of snow!

Wonky but wonderful!

Candy canes and a kitten!

Red and green!

My newest Arnett Santa from my dear friend Marlene!!  

I will treasure him!!!

Sweet Grouping!

All together!!!

Another view!

The End!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!!  I want to welcome all my new followers and thank all of you who have continued to follow along, and for leaving your sweet comments!!  Each one is a special gift that brings a smile to my face!! 

May this week be filled with love and laughter, joy, and LOTS of DECORATING!!

Heart Hugs to you~~

Good Morning! I just love all of your Santas :-) I love to decorate with them too at Christmas, you will find them all over my house.. I planned on keeping my decorating to a minimum this year too but once I start unpacking all of my Christmas treasures I can't bring myself to leave any still in the tubs :-) Have a wonderful day! Hugs~Melissa
