a little more Christmas

I am not very good at keeping them alive but at 99 cents each I couldn't help leaving home depot with out 6 poinsettias.
I love my faux holly garland that I have had for years.
This is what NOEL looks like with 7 children. (The "E" is in the large to be glued pile)
I have never meet a bottle brush tree that I didn't like. I am going to be adding some to the store in the next few days.
With decorations finished I can concentrate on a few goodies for my little ones. If only their lists didn't keep changing.

I love the comment about your need to be glued pile with the noel. Do you have a need to sew on a button pile too? We sure do. I always intent to get right on that, but it doesn't seem to get done ha!
Your house looks great!!

Kayce- Your choir singing "NLO" is adorable. My 4 year old son badly wanted to "paint" our white porcelain nativity set today. Part of me wanted to let him do it!

I could just move right in and be the resident illustrator. Your images make me want to draw or paint them all right NOW! (while drinking eggnog and listening to bing.)

How neat - growing up one of the holiday decorations we had/have is a bottlebrush tree, not too dissimilar to yours! I never knew it had a name and that it was a favorite holiday collectable. Seeing yours definitely reminds me of home...sigh. I miss the unique fancy Christmas lights we used to put on our tree too - white peacocks, little holiday ladies,... so pretty!

OMG! I am cracking up! I thought I was the only one with a "to glue" pile! Love it!

I keep changing my Christmas list on my poor mother, too!

I love the framed flag over your mantle! We have two "special" flags in our family, but we have them both in those triangular frames. I like your style much more!

You have introduced me to so many romantic little snowy decorations, especially the bottlebrush tree. How lovely that you pull out all you old pieces like the letters. Growing up in New Zealand we always had a BBQ on the beach in the hot hot sun and snowy trees seemed so far away...

I love the sentimental Christmas decorations that make their way out year after year more than anything else. Yours are lovely!!

Angie said...

I love that you put the rest of the NOEL letters out anyway! Everything looks great!!

Love your decorations. I'm with you on the to-be-glued pile. I broke an ornament last night. Ugh. And, my daughter has changed up her Christmas list again. Oh, well. :)

Your house looks beautiful! I hope when I have kids running around I have the energy to decorate as well as you have! xo

So funny about the "E"! I have broken my share of ornaments trying to get them on the tree.

Merry merry, Kayce!!!

Oh, my mom has some similar little angels. Love them just as they are, no "E" and all. So, I'd love to see what some of the "little" things you gift your children are. I could use some inspiration! Kayce's first annual gift guide maybe?

very merry vintage style said...

So funny, your NOEL story... Made me remember when the manger characters would come and go when my kids were little and I'd find Mary in with the littlest pet shop and Joseph in the Lego bin.

Your "NLO" is hysterical! I'm a big fan of poinsettias too.
