🎄I can’t believe it is December 4th. I have completed most of my decorating at our house. We have been having some painting done and the painter completed the foyer on Friday. I think it looks so neat and clean. I chose to stay with pretty much the same color as before.
🎄This is the first year I have themed my decorating on some trees and areas. I will start taking you a tour through our home the next few weeks.
🎄As you enter our home I have placed 2 prelit trees, with a touch of snow on each side of the door. A sled with some ice skates and a red bow gives a wintery touch to the entry. I added some greenery, white lights and a sign that reads “ There’s snow place like home” to my “Holiday Garland” container. This sign was made for me by my sister Deve from a piece of wood she got from the old barn at our home place. I love things that are handmaid that have such special meaning.
🎄Red and black plaid are very popular Christmas colors this year so I decided to buy some 4” ribbon and use this with the white lighted greenery going up the staircase and across the cat walk. I found some throws that had the same plaid print that brought the colors together. The family tree with our special ornaments gives the entry a wonderful Christmas feeling.
🎄I placed a tree at the top of the stairs where you get a good view of the ledge over our front door.
🎄This year I decided to make the ledge look like and old fashioned toy store window. I put a tree with colored lights that compliment the family tree. I placed the large nutcracker to the left of the tree and added toys around that are special to us. The Carrom board and badminton rackets are the ones I played with when I was young. (35+ years ago) The bubble gum machine and remote control car was Phil’s when he was young (40+ years old) The fire truck was our son Canaan’s when he was 4. (20 years ago) I enjoy things that when you look at them you get fond memories of your past. Maybe some of these toys remind you of some you played with as a child.
🎄I hope you have a good start on your decorating as well. I would love to see pictures of your decorations.
🎄Don’t forget to comment and share the posts on my Blessed Beyond Measures Facebook page. Every time you share my post your name will go in a drawing for a gift card to Hobby Lobby. I will draw the name on December 10 so you can receive the gift card before Christmas.
🎄I love decorating and the feeling of Christmas but most important I love to keep my mind focused on the Baby born over 2,000 years ago that changed everything….JESUS
