I'm decorated!

Thanks again for all of your sweet comments, I really appreciate them!! I just finished my house today. I have collected lots of Christmas things over the years working at the interior shop, and shopping at Hobby Lobby and other places. I love Christmas! I decorate with a little bit of everything. I like santas, presents, snowmen, etc. I have a gold tree with angels and crosses in the computer/ T.V. room. The little tree in the kitchen is done in gingerbread men, my main tree is in the dining room.





I'll post more pics soon, I took these at night and I don't have the best camera. Thanks for coming by!
