Here There and Everywhere

Time to share a bit more Christmas around here!  Please forgive me if I have not responded to some comments...having an issue with blogger.  Those who are always so faithful about commenting, rest assured, I will get to you sooner or later.  Today I am sharing our family room, breakfast area and kitchen.  This is where we live, and I chose to have it be merry, bright and fun.  If you missed my first Christmas post, you can find it HERE.

Our mantel decor got some updates this year.  I found the flocked, pre-lit garland at At Home and combined it with the cotton stem garland from my Fall Mantel...love how it looks!


 I use to collect snowmen, adding one each year, but haven't added any for quite some time.  I adore the ones I have and find new ways each year to display them.


Some red berries and a few red Christmas balls and ribbon were all that was needed.


 I also made new stockings this year!


This is the first of several small trees that I will be sharing.  No theme for this tree, just red, gold and a few favorite ornaments.


Moving on into the breakfast room area and the second small tree....this is one of my faves!


This tree gets turned on first thing in the morning and usually stays pretty much all day.


I added a few new things this year...you might notice a bit of a theme here!





The candy cane ribbon is also new...love how festive it is!


Next to the tree on the buffet, I added my old faithful apothecary jars.  I have so much fun finding new ways to use these in my decor....making little scenes was really fun!


The little houses are wooden and had belonged to my sweet MIL.



I used Epsom salts for the snow.


This last jar is filled with old Christmas cookie cutters that I've had since our children
were very young.



Had so much fun decorating this galvanized tiered tray.  Fortunately, my island is pretty deep, so I can have decorations in the center and still have plenty of usable space.


Found some super-cute mugs at Marshall's....this one cracks me up!


Fairy lights, greenery, berries and all things red and white!


Yes, this is me!


Knew you would want to see the Fairy lights going!


Always a fun place to decorate!


Okay, that's a wrap for this time.  I have more to share, but The Man and I have colds, so we will see how this plays out.  I know for sure, I am so happy that I did my decorating early!

Stay healthy and happy, dear ones!
Warm hugs,
Carol
