Decorating for Christmas

She says...

I wanted to share some of my holiday decor with you.  I started decorating inside the weekend after Thanksgiving and have finally gotten around to taking a few pics. It's been busy around here with some minor home renovation projects we're trying to complete before Christmas.  We will be sure to share more about that soon!
My grandmother ("Nanny") made this ceramic tree in the 70's and gave it to me before she passed.
 I love this tree and remember how she had it displayed on a small table in the front window of her home.
It's neat that these adorable trees are making a comeback all these years later.

Our slim Christmas tree is decorated with buffalo check,
 red and white ornaments and a snowman hat topper.
My lifelong collection of Nutcrackers displayed on our mantle.

A new Christmas Cactus from Trader Joe's. I can't wait to see it in bloom!

I have had this nativity for years and still love it so much!
 The plaque reads, "The True Meaning of Christmas"
Buffalo check runner with trees, pine cones and candles.

I found these Christopher Radko Holiday dishes at Target over 10 years ago and still love them!
 I also have the bowls and some serving pieces.

I added some small wreaths to my windows this year with some Christmas plaid ribbon.

My son gave me this adorable mini nutcracker
 last year and he is displayed in my kitchen.

Look at this cute nutcracker mug...

Rae Dunn holiday towel found at Kirkland's last year.

Spot says Merry Christmas!
He's so handsome in his scarf and made it on our Christmas card this year!


  1. I love the buffalo plaid and have seen lots of it this year. My Grandmother had one of the ceramic trees as well and I'm glad to see them making a come back as well. Have a Christmasy weekend!

    1. I have seen it everywhere this year and hope it stays for more than just a couple of seasons. Have a Merry Christmas Lea!

  2. I love it! My sister has the ceramic tree from my grandmother and it is proudly displayed every year! Thanks for linking up. Wishing you many blessings this holiday season.


    1. I love that our grandmothers were so crafty and talented! Merry Christmas

  3. I remember back in the 70s when women were making those little ceramic trees. A relative had a ceramic shop so my grandmother made lots of things and the tree was one of them. I found one at Cracker Barrel a couple years ago, of course it's nothing like the old original ones. I like your slim tree, I went with a slim one a while back. Thanks so much for linking up at #AThemedLinkup 7 for Christmas Trees and Ornaments. Shared.
