Christmas at My House

Yep.. two days in a row!  I’m joining KIMBA’S  OPEN HOUSE PARTY as my way to jump back into bloggin! 

First we begin in the Entry.. The Hubs built this cabinet for me for my Birthday this year.. I just LOVE it!!!  (the mess in the background.. just keepin it real for you!!)

Do you all find it hard to photgraph trees?  To turn on the lights or not?  Flash or not?? 

Next we move onto the China Cabinet..

Yep.. two lights are out.. more real life!

Moving right along now.. Here’s the Mantle.  I never got to join The Nester’s Garland Party.. But she did give me lots of guidance this year.. I bulked up the greenery and swagged it.. LOVE IT!  My Nativity is on the mantle.  I bought it in Italy when we were stationed there.

Notice that the stockings aren’t hung?  I’m workin on it.. I AM!!

Here’s the top of Big Black.. that’s what my kids call the Entertainment Center..lol!  You’ll recognize the blurry picture from my header.. I love the way it turned out too.   I copied the mantle garland, minus the lights.. and swagged the front..

He stands next to the tree… I have a slim tree.  I wish for a big lush tree.. but in my house it just wouldn’t work!  Sooooo I load it up!!
