Deck the Halls

Welcome! Come on in out of the cold. It's a bit chilly out there!
The "Hall" is all "Decked" and Santa is at the top of the stairs to greet you.!


Take off your coat and warm yourself by the fire.


"O' Christmas Tree" is in the family room to cheer you. Twelve feet of gold ribbons, red and gold bulbs and glitter.





Lots of lights and garland on the mantle and entertainment center.




The cat walk has garland, bulbs, lights and ribbon.




The back staircase is lit, as well.



Let's go into the kitchen for some hot cider, tea, or cocoa.


We can get to know each other a little better over some refreshments.


I have a few vignettes sitting around on the kitchen counters.


I love all the Christmas greens and reds, don't you?

Snowmen are a favorite of mine.


I hope you enjoyed your visit. Come back again soon. I'll be posting some other Christmas decor in other rooms.
Please join Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for many beautiful homes decked out in their Christmas finery.

Hi Sweet friend,
I love your home for Christmas. Simply gorgeous. The staircase is wonderful and everything is so inviting and sings holiday.
Love your tree with the big red ornaments. Outside is just as gorgeous.
Your side chair in your header is just what I am looking for. Did you have it custom made? I love it and in the process of planning a little sitting room/living room redo after the holidays.

I so enjoyed this visit and I tell ya, I keep saying. You are magazine material girlfriend.

Going to you newer post next.
Hugs from Texas,
Celestina Marie
