Holiday Home Christmas Vignette

When it comes to  Christmas decorating, I now have a partner in daughter Courtney! She takes over the family room, festooning it in the traditional red and green decorations.

I started a Santa collection about 25 years ago. This "Old World" Santa is one of my favorites.

Courtney adorns every surface (and plate holder) with festive embellishments and greenery.

The mantle is always a challenge, (with the flat screen TV hanging right above it), but I think she did a fabulous job incorporating Santas in the garland..

She set darling vignettes all around the family room!

This is one of my favorites in my Santa collection..and probably the cheapest. I love that this Santa keeps the perspective on the true meaning of Christmas!
Thank you, Courtney, for all your help and hard work..You did a wonderful job!!
"The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing others' loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas."
