Christmas In Our Abode

We don't have our tree up or the lights up in the front of the house. But the rest of the Christmas stuff is out. Take a look!



We actually have gifts wrapped already. Just waiting to be put under the tree. What a difference from the slackers we were last year.


















If I could eat a candle, this one would be it!





Salt and Pepper Gift Shakers



Christmas Tree Candles!




I LOVE this time of year! Have you all done all your Christmas shopping & decorating?

I'm loving all your Christmas stuff! We finally did our mantle last night, but that's as far as we have gotten!! Total slackers!!

Loving your decorations! We also had gifts wrapped before the tree went up. In fact, I have only 7 more things to buy and Christmas shopping is done! Sorry, I don't mean to brag, but I'm amazed by it!

Elizabeth and Kyle @ Love Is the Adventure said...

Your home is so BEAUTIFUL! I love all the splashes of red, too - it's my favorite color. I love your centerpiece idea, I might steal it.

I still have some window dressing to do but the tree is up and all my Christmas shopping is done and wrapped (except for my mother-in-law and one gift exchange). If I can just drag my lazy self to the post office to mail everything, we can call this year a success!!

Thanks for posting pictures - everything looks so cheerful. :)
