Christmas Vignettes Part 2

Here is the second part of my Christmas vignettes..with LOTS of pictures!! Thanks for the feedback!

This is in the entryway..

and a close up of the garland that runs up the stairway.

A shot of on top of the secretary..

Jesus IS the reason!! :-)

A very old nativity I inherited from my mother after she passed away...

This is an old Children's Bible I purchased at a thrift store years ago..opened to the story of the birth of Christ.

The tree in the family room..decorated by my daughter, Courtney.

The whole family room was decorated by Courtney, including the book shelves. It worked great for Santa displays!

The mantle..

Cute grouping on a side table..

Like most of the Santas, this one was a thrift store find..

A scene on the coffee table..

and on the side table. I think Courtney did a fabulous job!

I had done this arrangement on the kitchen counter, but wasn't satisfied with it~Courtney thought of the idea to add twinkle lights on the bottom of the tray..I love it now!

a simple way to add a little Christmas to everyday items in the kitchen..

And Winston bidding adieu!!

Steve and I are motoring down this morning to Southern California for a few days. We'll be meeting our grand-daughter for the first time! (She's 1 1/2 weeks old!) Oh! I cannot WAIT to hold her!
We will be back in  a few days...Caleb and Courtney remain here to keep the home fires burning!
