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!

It's Turkey Time!

Hello Friends!
Wow, where did the past month go? It just flies by doesn't it? Thanksgiving is in two days
and I'm ready to cook and eat good food. We are staying home this year. I can't wait for the day
that we live closer to family. For many years we traveled constantly to Florida my home state and Ohio my hubs home state and I think we just got burned out. At one point we counted 33 over 13 hour car rides. Whew! What are your plans? I hope you all stay safe and it's a happy one for you.
 I wish I had done more of this fun fall list. It's been a crazy couple of months.
Did anyone complete a fall bucket list?
 Yum! These apple caramel parfaits sound easy and delicious. Click here for the recipe. 
Check out my Pinterest board "Autumn Eats" for more fall recipes.
 I found this decorative cream jar at Marshalls. I added it to the kitchen counter.
At $12.99 I thought it was adorable and it matched our newly painted cabinets.
 The same day I found this little cream leaf plate for $3.99 and displayed it too.


Christmas decorations were at Marshalls as well so I picked up these pretty
ornament storage boxes and shiny wreath. That's next! I'll share soon.
Do you spy the kitty tail? He can't hide from us.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a USMC wife married to a wonderful man for fifteen years. He's a CH-53E pilot and has done three fleet tours overseas. I am very proud of him and his hard work. For many years I worked in retail jewelry sales and finally decided it was time to stop and enjoy my decorating passion. We share our home with our cat Chestnut, Lloyd the cockatiel and a betta fish. I appreciate all of your comments and try to respond to as many as I can. Join me! I would be happy for you to follow along.
