Christmas Cheer Around Here

Hello Friends!
It's time for holiday decorating and I am actually finished. Whew! This is probably
the earliest I've had it done in several years by far. Today I thought I would share
the stair hand railings and a few vignettes around. I'll show you the two trees soon.
Join me for a little tour!









I added the red tulle from Cracker Barrel to the decorated swags.
The jars are filled with glass ornaments, tied with ribbon and bronze poinsettias.
The caroler couple is made by 'Jim Shore' at QVC. The frames are handmade by Kristen.
The red wreath is from Kirklands and the Santa tassle is another creation from Kristen.
Done and done, horray!
Check out my Pinterest board Christmas Cheer for more holiday decorating ideas.
Have you started or finished your decorating yet?
Have a wonderful week!

Very pretty Melissa! The stairs look very regal and I love the hall table. The Jim Shore figurines are very nice and I love the ornament filled jars with the poinsettias on top!

Everything looks lovely as usual, Melissa. And since you're finished with your decor, how about you come over and help me with mine? Or you could just teach me to keep my house clean like yours. No, wait, that would take too long!! :)

I like how you topped off the glass round jars full of ornaments, very clever using poinsettas.

Your railing is so pretty. Love how you wove the ribbon through it. I'm happy someone is done with decorating, because it is taking me forever this year!
