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

Our stockings are trimmed and hung by the fireplace, waiting to be filled with all sorts of great goodies!

This Victorian doll holding a Christmas tree sits in a beautiful vintage stocking trimmed with garland and a tortoiseshell hair comb.

Our Santas are waiting patiently on the mantle for midnight on Christmas Eve to come so that they can start to put presents under the tree!

My collection of vintage ornaments look especially sparkly to me this year!

New and old ornaments are side by side, like this button-eyed gingerbread man that James made last year.

One of my new favorite decorations is this Rudolph that James and his Auntie Amy made during her visit.

"But the prettiest sight you'll see is the Holly that will be on your own, front door!"

We're getting excited!

Hey! Where's Chris' toilet paper roll ornament?!

BTW, Dennis says the blue Santa looks like the Roaming Gnome of Travelocity fame!

I love the construction paper reindeer. I'll tuck that one away for a year or so. Thanks for visiting my blog!
