Christmas Decorations

I just finished decorating for the holidays, so I thought I would share a few pictures with you. Our house has a very open floor plan with the living room, sitting room, kitchen, and dining room all open to each other. I add little touches of Christmas all over the house, but the sitting room is Christmas central. These pictures are of our sitting room. Please excuse the glare from the overhead light in many of the pictures. I need to work on my photography skills.


Our tree is usually taller and fuller, but this is the best we could find this year. It is a little Charlie Brownish, but I love it.

Another view of the sitting room. I love burning candles in the fireplace. It gives off such a pretty glow.

I purchased these precious stockings from Pottery Barn last year. The red stocking are for me and Michael, and of course the green ones are for the dogs-Porter, Boone, and Scout.
