Happy Friday! Today, members of this audience share in this post Holiday Home Decor: From Your House to All.
On this first full day of winter, I thought it would be fun to begin with Karen’s home in Ohio.
She may not have an official white Christmas, but certainly enjoyed God’s decorations to celebrate this week before.
I am not sure if her dog likes it or not…but hopefully he runs and kicks up snow for fun.
Karen wanted us to know these are actually color pictures…they just look black & white during winter!
I can only remember one white Christmas as a teenager in west Texas.
We loved every moment of watching it snow during our celebrations.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful snow with us, Karen.
HOLIDAY HOME DECOR: A SANTA COLLECTION
Kathie and I share a love of traditional Christmas colors and collections.
I collect snowmen, Santas, and trees.
Her Santas are so much fun…and I love her artistic home.
I have a extensive collection of Santa. Not all of
them are in the photos but this is most.
1. Santas on the mantel. L These are some of my favorites.
2, The bookcase with my treasured nativity set, assorted Santas, a
miniature “Night Before Christmas” I made back in the 80s, a cards and
photos featuring my pets from the past.
3. This ledge is on the landing halfway down the staircase just off the
entrance. My larger Santas and reindeer. The largest Santa is one I
made in about 25 years ago.
4. My tree is an eclectic and I treasure the ornaments I’ve collected
over the past 50+ years. Even “Bear” gets decorated for Christmas.
Thank you so much, Kathie for sharing your home with us…..lovely collection.
HOLIDAY HOME DECOR: REASON FOR THE SEASON
I tried my best, Linda, to get your image to a larger size that was not pixilated.
But, I am you can see her beautiful mantel featuring the lamb with the trees for your holiday home decor.
For me, it is a lovely way to say we celebrate the birth of the lamb of God.
I love it and so wish it was larger.
Her holiday home decor also shows her different ways to have trees in smaller sizes…which works better for some.
Sweet Suzette sent us her own message of JOY for the season amidst her own holiday home decor.
She shares my love of God’s joy during this magical time of year.
HOLIDAY HOME DECOR: MR. B MADE IT HAPPEN
Mr. B says he saved Christmas….and I think he is right.
Thanks to his determination to get it done, a large majority of our decorations are out….not all, but many of the ones the children will remember.
They always remember the living room mantel, because that is where their own stockings hang.
Each grandchild has a stocking with their names embroidered on it and “hung by the chimney with care.”
Both trees are decorated, and he has not forgotten to water the real one.
I hope you have enjoyed visiting the homes of those who gather here on the blog….I know I have.
I hope throughout the year we can keep this going with projects and different decorations for other seasons…it is fun to see what you do.
You can always send your pictures and recipes my way to email@example.com.
I hope to see you tomorrow for a Christmas message and greeting from my family.

I was encouraged to explain more about my SHOPPING LINKS page and how to use it. (In fact I just added a few new brands to the list)
I am an affiliate for many different brands and when you click on those brands and shop, then I receive a small commission.
This is such an important income for me and my family.
I have tried to include the brands most shopped by this audience, but sometimes I miss one of your favorites.
If you will tell me what you are shopping, then I can tell you if I am affiliate for them and give you that link…if it is not already on the page.
And remember to send your recipes and home decor with pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send to email and do not try to put in comments! YOU are the best.
