Christmas Decorating

I finished my decorating today! YAY!!!! And I'm only two weeks later than I usually am! BOO!! But, I am done. So I decided to post some pictures.

I currently have two Christmas-themed collections that I regularly add to. One of my collections is angels. Right now I am displaying two shelves full, but I still have quite a few more angels that I DON'T put out. I just don't have the room to put them all out. I have my favorites and unique angels on display.

My other collection is Nativities. I have fourteen and seem to get at least one new one every year. I only have one 'traditional' Nativity and several vintage ones. Each one is unique in some way.

It took me years to finally get the centerpiece for my dining room table the way I wanted it. I have done this for the past few years and still am not tired of it.

Finally, this is our tree. All of the ornaments I made myself, including the tree top angel. One of these years I plan on making a garland, also, but that probably is just wishful thinking on my part.

Thank you! After 30+ years I think I SHOULD be able to do it right! ;)

Actually, I do the same thing over and over year after year--it keeps it easier if I don't have to think about what I'm doing every year.

I wish my dining room was bigger and then I could put the leaf in the table and the centerpiece wouldn't be so overwhelming, but it's fine the way it is. And this gives me a way to display my favorite candlesticks. (I LOVE the Iittila brand and display what I have at every opportunity.)
