It's beginning to look a little like Christmas here

Fresh green wreath made by my brother,  I think this is the 4th year he has made a Christmas one for me.  He has also made Thanksgiving and Easter wreaths.

green tree with lots of birds and mostly red ornaments

and a white tree - it looks better in person

the butler gets a Santa hat this time of year.
Theo is usually a good sport but he draws the line at wearing hats or sweaters for that matter

the cutest Christmas decoration at our house is Gavin, he is holding a Santa doll my mom made about 50 years ago.

  2. Hi Rhonda,
    So very pretty. It does look like Christmas there. Miss Candi said Theo a sweater would keep him nice and toasty. LOL
    Have a blessed week.

  3. The wreath your brother made is absolutely stunning! I've never been able to make a wreath out of real greens. Everything looks just festive and lovely!

    Have a wonderful Christmas

  5. It sure does look like Christmas at your house! What a fabulous wreath, how nice that your brother makes such great wreaths. Your little Gavin is the nicest decor you could have found, especially with Santa in his arms.

  7. How sweet that your brother makes you wreaths!!! Your cherry pie from your last post looks yummy, we have cherries in the freezer. Now that the apple pie is gone, cherry may be next.

  10. Your brother is very talented with making wreaths! Very pretty decorations. I have a white tree as well and I agree that it does not take a picture well. Mine is much prettier in person than in a picture. Cute pics of Gavin and Theo!

  12. Your brother certainly does make beautiful wreaths! I love the simplicity of your decorating. I'm very simple with decorating myself (probably more of a minimalist). Gavin does look like a cute little Christmas cherub. :) Merry Christmas, Lyn

  13. Hi Rhonda! I feel so out of touch with you since our long and difficult move into our new house this autumn. It is nice to visit and see your house all festive. What a fabulous wreath your brother made! And your mother MADE that Santa??? Really??? I love it and tell her I said hello when you talk to her. Gavin is just such a handsome little man.

    Love your trees. I want to go to smaller trees next year. It was all too much for me this year.

    Hugs from Holland ~
