Hello, and welcome to my third post in my decorating series!!  

I am so glad you stopped by for a visit and today, we will be viewing 

my Sitting Room,

or what my granddaughters call, "Grammy's Room!"

the colors of Christmas

My dry sink with some of my Arnett Santas, 

Mr. Snow and his candy canes

Striped stocking I  made, hanging on my large black cupboard!

large Ball jars of buttons and drieds

Santa by Sharon Andrews, sitting on a glazed butter churn.

Wool stocking I made from an old blanket

Painted TV cabinet with my lighted Harold Turpin house, one Arnett and a Country at Heart Santa.

love all the shades of brown

Arnett Santa and Prim Reindeer I made using a Netty Lacroix design.

old coverlet piece for a blanket

Country at Heart Santa and another Prim Reindeer I made from the same Netty pattern.

Some favorite chocolate molds!

have you been naughty or nice?

Santa, sheep, and Santa mold!

tabletop full of favorite things

Feather tree with cinnamon stars, and some of my sewing things!

simple and sweet

Finally, a tiny batting Santa, nestled in an old rye basket with a piece of greenery!


I have really enjoyed posting again and it has been a rewarding challenge for me! 

I so appreciate all of your visits and sweet comments too.......so very encouraging!

I still have one more post to share and I do hope you will come back tomorrow!


Be sure to take some time for yourself,

enjoy a cup of cocoa,

bake some cookies and eat a few,

light a candle,

put on your favorite Christmas CD,

sit in your favorite chair and admire the tree,

and just do something you love!

Tis the Season

Wishing you a day filled with the Delights of the Season, my friends~~
