It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas....

Good Morning all! I thought I would share my Christmas decorating so far.....I am nearly done as I am only have two trees this year as it will be too much temptation for little tiny fingers to have the others....you see I usually have a snowy tree and a handmade tree, the one in the entry, a memory tree and the main tree plus No 1 husband took a fancy to a large fibre optic number that has to go somewhere. Apart from the main tree the others are only 4 footers. So here are a few piccies. No whingeing I did warn you previously that I had the Christmas elf dust firmly upon me....
In the entry way - many old favourites.
Living room - this is our Family quilt with our names in the hearts. A beautiful design from talented Aussie designer Chrsitine Book
My collection of Heartwood Creek Santas by Jim Shore.....love 'em
"Gingie Corner" in my kitchen still a few more bits to put out.
Snowy corner off the Kitchen.....more to come! I know Crazy!
Living room - The large Kris Kringle was made for me by my friend Ann many years ago and he is still one of my favourites. The wooden ornaments Ann bought back from Europe for me and look at the beauitful card I recieved from her last Christmas.
As you can see I like a lot of handmade decorations and favour the 'Country Christmas' feel. I will post some more pics when I am done.
I have also been sewing some of these little chaps.....
Little snowy ornaments.
Hope you enjoyed your little tour and have a great day.
Be kind to yourself; as kind as you would to your very best friend.
Blessings Michelle xx
