I spent alot of Friday decorating the house for Christmas. I changed the mantel this year. I bought some mercury glass candle holders and wanted to incorporate them into the decorations this year. Here are some things I got done:
This is a little dark (my flash is still acting up!). I will try and take a better picture another day. All my new mercury glass looks so good up there on the mantel!! I am really pleased with it.

These are all my Byer's Carolers I've collected over the years. They are on top of my antique NY state stepback cupboard in the Dining Room.
I have a small whitewashed cabinet in the kitchen eating area. I had to decorate that too!
I keep this little Garden holder up year round and just change out the decoration during the year.
This is a antique sled I painted in the late 80's. I love the way Santa's beard came out! I really love this piece!
John and I drink only tea and this tea set is perfect for the two of us. We usually sip tea with some Christmas cookies by the fireplace.
This is my sideboard in the kitchen eating area, which was just perfect for my "sugar" houses and churches!
We have a granite breakfast ledge and I just had to add a touch of country Christmas to it! I've collected this items over the years and I bring them out every year to spend Christmas with us!
Well I hope you have enjoyed your little tour! I will be posting some more pictures of the decorations tomorrow or the next day!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
