Christmas Corners

our Christmas decorating has been up for a couple weeks now. I've had this terrible flu-bug and it's kept me from sharing the corners of our Christmas here. We don't go all-out with decorating, we mainly have our tree and little things here and there.
This year we got a real Christmas tree.... we usually set up our flocked-with-snow-artificial-tree, but we just wanted something different this year. I've been collecting Department 56's Krinkles collection for years now and have enough Krinkle ornaments to cover our entire flocked tree. Though I love them.... we kept them tucked away in their boxes.
This year we dug out all of our "vintage" Christmas ornaments. We just wanted a change and it's a nice change too.

It's a smaller tree, only about 5 feet and sitting upon a pedestal. Keeping the fur-babies from eating it!

This little stuffed star is our new ornament this year. Right above his head is one of my most-treasured... a mercury glass Santa. He's very, very, old and so sweet!

I know this looks like real popcorn, but it's just plastic. Isn't it great?

Our nativity scene!

Christmas wouldn't be complete without Charlie and his little tree!


  1. How lovely!
    Your house should be really magical this Christmas with corners like this. That must be a fascinating collection of Dickensian houses. Thank you for sharing.
