Day 147 - My Office Tree (Day 13 of 25 days of Christmas)

My little office tree is kind of a "Charlie Brown tree". It's one of those little skinny ones that's seen better days. But, the lights are cheery and the white/crystal ornaments show up well.

The Christmas pillows add a nice touch and are all handmade (by me).

Day 146 - Entry way revisited (Day 12 of 25 days of Christmas)

This gorgeous 'lightbox' was a gift from a friend last year. I'd seen them at craft shows and I just love it. It's one of those glass blocks people sometimes use in bathrooms, with a hole drilled in it and Christmas light poked in, then wrapped as a gift. One of my favorite decorations. It sits on the table in my entryway.

The candle holder was another gift so many years ago it would be considered 'vintage' now. And, actually the glass beads I use around the bottom of the candles truly ARE vintage - they were my mother-in-laws in the early 1900s. I restrung them a few years ago as the string had long since worn out and I was loosing them.

I posted a picture earlier of the little tree - but from the other direction. Can you tell I love Christmas lights???

Day 145 - Purple Tree (Day 11 of 25 days of Christmas)

A friend gave me this little purple tree a couple of years ago as a gift and it always makes me smile (I think that was her idea). I couldn't get the purple lights to show in a photo. This little tree sits at the entrance to my bedroom, so I can enjoy it all day and evening.

Day 143 - Santa Baby (Day 9 of 25 days of Christmas)

Frosty's not totally excited about modeling his new Santa suit - but he does love those treats. I needed 3 hands.

He just looks SOOOOO cute though.
