♫♪Deck the Halls♪♫

Yea for Christmas time! I LOVE the holidays: The music, the lights, the decorations, the feeling you get when you give a gift, the magic and the sparkle (this is the only time of year that it is totally okay for grown adults - with no children - to decorate their home with GLITTER)! Here is some pics of my decorations. Not worthy of a magazine cover, but fun to share!

There are stockings hung on nearly every door!

Most of the deer are sporting their holiday spirits!

Mr Elk and Mr Deer are adorned in their holiday gear!


This year, I got to decorate the porch in - what else - but PINK & SPARKLES!!!

Being the porch is our "John Deere" room, all the little tractors each got a bow!

The air plane, too!

All the plants got some type of pink, sparkly adornment too!

Windows are all trimmed with pink and silver sparkly ornaments!


And even the light fixtures!

Mr Snowman that sits on my kitchen counter!

The red/snowflake garden in the entry way

My "snowflake" cross. I made a leaf cross for fall and really liked it, now I want one for all seasons...and this is the winter one!

The yarn-wrapped vase I made with some foilage from the gardens (yes, there is glitter on the flowers, why wouldn't there be?!)

The mantel...garland is a tish crooked, I see, but oh well!

The painted candle sticks with pine cones

We got these for a wedding present and I LOVE them. They were hanging from the mantel originally, but fell down and this is where they sit. I don't know if they'll make it back up or not! He he!

Barbie and her snow babies!

MY MR MOOSE!!!!!!!!!!! We got this on our anniversary trip to Grand Marais. Barney said my eyes lite up like a kid in a candy store when I saw this. Nothing better than 2 of my favorite things in 1 -- Moose and GLITTER!

This poor plant...I hope it makes it through the holidays! Not sure if this is the best thing for it, but I like it!

My christmas fabric flower wreat that I made! I made one for fall too and also felt that one wreath for each season would be fun!

My table and center piece. All the left over ornaments that didn't make it somewhere else went here along with some candles and a few pine cones.

Ahh, the SNOW! So far, this seems to be all we'll be seing for snow this year! Cotton balls stung onto fishing line and (of course) sprayed with glitter! Fun!

Our wedding cake topper/first ornament as a married couple!

The little "normal" tree in the kitchen!

Like I said, there are so many reasons to love this time of year, but we must not forget the real meaning of Christmas~~Jesus. May you all have a Merry & Blessed Christmas!
