I'm joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Check the box: We got the tree and put the lights and ornaments on. I always feel like once we have the tree, I can proceed with the rest of the decorating.
I have been collecting Santa ornaments for about ten years. So the tree is decorated with the collection, plus all the ornaments that have a woodsy theme. Although I don't like theme trees, I find that when decorating the tree, I gravitate toward the natural look. The skirt is just landscaping burlap that I wrapped around the bottom.
One of my favorite Santa ornaments. He is wearing an apple green felt coat trimmed in pinecones.
Another one of my favorites. This Santa is headed for the slopes! I found him in Calgary, Canada years ago. He was one of the firsts of my collection.
Another skiing Santa. How cute is he? He is wearing all white shearling and even has a burlap bag full of toys on his back.
This Santa is wearing a red felt coat with toggle buttons, lined with shearling. I love the detail.
Christmas is extra special this year because of our granddaughter Reese! She is 16 months old and full of wonder and curiosity. It will be so much fun to see Christmas through her eyes--the magic of it all.....
One of my favorite "natural" ornaments. Jute and burlap--no glitter! More Christmas decorating coming soon.....
Reese is absolutely beautiful. The majic of Christmas thru a child's eye is priceless. Your home and tree are beautiful. I've enjoyed stepping thru your front door, thanks for having us.. hugs ~lynne~
I really love your Christmas decor and the tree is gorgeous! Is it a real one? We still always get a real one and this one looks real. Your grand-daughter is just a doll~ too~ ! Cindy
I love your tree - so pretty and full of memories.
Beautiful tree! I collected Santas several years ago, but ended up giving them to my children. Your Granddaughter is so cute.
Waht adarling tree. Hope you are enjoying your xmas.
Thank you for the icon. I've added you on the side bar but do let us know when you get here, what you are wearing etc so I can add you to the current status side bar too. Tea will commence at 4 with a pre tea arrival around 3:00.
Ooohh for years I collected Santas-- such a fun thing to do. But after a while because people knew I collected them -- that was all the gifts I recieved. Well... one day i took a mighty stance and said..." I do collect Santas... but ones I love... so from now on no more Santas." :)
This way my collection became an extension of the lovely ones I chose, not from others.
Thanks so much -- I loved your first front door shot-- so pretyy.
if you get a moment, stop by and say hi!
