With NaNo last month I didn't get around to planning any posts for December so I'll share a bit of my holiday decorating.
Our Christmas train -- I mean, really! With my house of boys, how could we not have one? -- it used to hold all our Christmas cards but most of those come via email now, I've tucked an old candle wreath in their place. Currently, this is sitting in our living room but once the tree arrives (this weekend per tradition) it may get moved to a safer spot.
This is the window above the train. A cranberry wreath, the Wallace Sleigh Bells -- Mark and I have been collecting these since 1996, the first and only Christmas we've been apart. We're missing 2007, oh eBay here I come, and haven't picked up 2010 yet. -- a couple of my Santa heads, and an apple swag.
Santa is a huge theme in my Christmas decorating. This vanilla stick candle, apple wreath (matches the swag in previous photo), and gold charger usually sit on our dining table but I had this mini-fridge crying for something. Behind them are a Santa box, Santa candle on the red holder, and a Santa figure.
The window on our stairway landing. See, more Santa heads. Yep, I take my decorating all the way, every room will have something. The railing in this house isn't conducive for garland and my stairs feel positively naked, LOL. I'll be working on something to dress 'em up.
