Christmas 2016




I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are having a great start to the new year! I'm late sharing my Christmas decor but better late than never! I also added several  pictures of items I made and sold throughout the Christmas season. Thank you all for your business! 

I have always wanted to do a Nutcracker themed mantel so I ordered these in Dallas and love them! They are metal and very unique. I used the Christmas tree picture five years ago and thought it looked great with the Nutcrackers so I used it again. The garland is last years, but I changed the ribbon and added the Nutcrackers. It turned out very festive! 

There are more pictures below of my living room where you can see my newly recovered sofas. I loved the red for years but it was time for a change. There are also pictures of my dining room and gingerbread themed kitchen below. Enjoy! 










I eventually had more than one present under the tree! 

















 I will be reordering several of these trains for next year!
