Christmas Decorations at our House

I think I am finally done with the Christmas decorations at our house. The Tree is decorated,
the mantel is done, outside is done and now I can focus on other things like baking cookies, making the last remaining gifts, card writing, etc. Here are some pictures of our decorations that I promised.

Our 10' Tree

This Silent Night Ornament was my Grandparents from the '40's or '50's.

Woodland Santa Ornament

Last year my sister, Sue gave me this ornament for Christmas. It is a picture of me when I was 2 yrs. old!!

I bought this lovely sparkly jeweled snowflake ornament from Pottery Barn. It is one of my favorites.

This is the blue cupboard I have in the Dining Room all spruced up for Christmas.

This is my old world Santas, the Belleek china cottage ornament we got in Ireland and a Cast Soldier on his horse on the blue cupboard in the Dining Room.

On the other side of the Blue Cupboard I put the Christmas Teapot and service for two!

This is my Byer's Carolers collection on the entertainment unit in the Family Room. The entertainment unit was made by my Dad a few years ago.

Here is the mantel in the Family Room.


This Santa is on the mantel is mine and my Papa gave it to me when I was 1! That makes my Santa 51 yrs. old!

Here is Old Befana, my Byer's doll on the other side of the mantel.

My antiqued tin reindeer are in the center of the mantel. I put the red votives on either side to add some color.

Well that is all for today. I have alot more to show you but I will do it over the next few days. Gives you something to look forward too!

Well, Sherri, that couldn't have been more fun! It was like walking through your beautiful, Christmasy house. Thank you. I particularly love the photograph ornament.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
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!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
