Christmas 2012 all around the house



A belated Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!  I love to decorate my house at Christmas; this year, I used a lot of beautiful things that belonged to my mother.





















“And now we welcome the new year,
full of things that have never been.”

  4. I enjoyed seeing your Christmas decorations. I especially noticed your salt-dough pottery; I think I have some of the same! I've had it about 25 years. Not the bigger ones on your mantle, but the set in the wooden "stable."

  5. Isn't it a MAJOR game of hide and seek when it's time to put it all away? I didn't put much up this year and still missed putting a few things in the Christmas boxes! (I am so tired of unpacking, that the though of unpacking all of the Christmas stuff, WAS JUST TOO MUCH!Hope you New Year is bright!
