It's being to look a lot like Christmas

It's been a lot of work but I finally got our Christmas decorating done and I am very happy with how it turned out. This year, we have 4 small trees.
This tree has multi color twinkle lights, Santa things and scentamental ornaments.
My father in law painted the Santa on horseback.
A silver tree and a green tree with twinkle lights and pink ornaments. 
These ornaments are very vintage and all have little scenes in them. 
This tree has long pink bulbs and some birds. My son thinks all Christmas trees need birds on them, even when the bird ornaments are old and very shabby.......
This one is my favorite. The ornaments, all made by my mom, are Christian symbols call Chrismons and crocheted Angels. 

On this fridge are my parents stockings that they used years ago. They are not very big and we all found it tricky to find tiny things to stuff them with.  
The stockings  don't weigh much and I hung them with clothesline that glued magnet strips on the back of. Aren't they pretty? 
The little stockings are plastic canvas and I made them a few years back.  The grands can play with the little ones but not the big ones as they are a bit fragile.

I hope you all are getting in the holiday spirit too!

  1. Lovely! I hope to get my Christmas boxes out this week. We had a surprise birthday party to get through first. I'm looking forward to Christmas this year.

  2. It's always a big job to get the decorating done but well worth it when it is done and your family and loved ones can enjoy it. It's so precious to have those stockings made by your mom. I managed to put my tree and decorations up yesterday and am glad I can now focus on the other preparations of the season. Like Georgene I am looking forward to Christmas with loved ones. I'm sure you are too! Have a good lead up to Christmas. xx

  8. My grandmother had those same little ornaments when I was little. I used to love looking at them on her tree. Those stockings are too cute! I think I may have to make us a set of them.
