Christmas Decor Galore

Welcome to our home! This is my first year decorating for Christmas in our new home, so I'm trying to figure out what works and what doesn't and what will be saved for next year.

Our Minnie Adkins folk art horse from Kentucky all decked out for Christmas in our foyer. My Christmas topiary, which I'm kind of happy I didn't sell, is sitting behind it.

My mom has made needlepoint stockings, from scratch - patterns and all - for all my cousins in the family. Husband and Lallie have one too. These are very special to me and notice how our names are not on them so they can be handed down. It takes mom about one year per stocking.

Our nativity and Lallie's Santa Claus picture from last year. We will not be getting one this year, Lallie is deathly afraid of Santa, except from a distance.

Our formal roof Christmas tree, yes, it's skinny, but it fits! Our larger Minnie Adkins horse is above it, you can see it's legs and tail. I haven't gotten a tree skirt yet, so ignore that part! :-)

Our banister... (and messy kitchen - sorry!)

Our living room explosion underneath!

Merry Christmas (and Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating tonight!)


  1. Gorgeous! Love the Christmas tree in front of the pool, that's similiar to what it's like here.
