More Christmas Decor

Merry Christmas to Everyone!
Thanks for visiting me and for all the sweet comments.
The following pics are of the family room, first ones taken at night and some by day.

It's a fun room to decorate for Christmas because the walls are green and the furniture is red and beige. Click to enlarge.

This is taken from the fireplace looking up.

We put our nativity set on top of the entertainment center. I didn't like the fact that the bulb showed at this angle and Ceekay suggested I buy a star and secure it in front of the bulb, so I did.

Now the light shines through the star and I like the effect. (Thanks Ceekay)


This is a glass block used in basement windows or bathroom windows for privacy. It is stuffed with a strand of white lights and topped with a bow.

A very old and tired Santa whose belly rises when he snores.

This Santa sings quite loudly "Santa is Coming to Town"

Jonas loves the pop-up present that plays music.
This is my snowmen collection behind the couch on a sofa table.

Centerpiece on the coffee table.

Oh look Santa decided to drop in for lunch today.---- Oh, my mistake, it's our new grand baby, Ivy Louise. It's her first Christmas and she's dressed the part.
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy some of the festivities in your town.

Oh my gosh, Ivy Louise is darling in the little red suit.

Your home is so cozy and warm. You decorate so incredibly wonderful. I love it all.
I could sit by the fire and just be!!!You are so talented.
I love Ceekay's idea for the star in front of the bulb. That is a great idea. She is such a dear and talented sweetheart too.

Thank you for sharing more of your lovely home. It certainly belongs in a magazine.
Merry Christmas.
