In The Beginning....

Alright so I thought I'd share pictures of my unfinished Christmas decorating. Like I said I have not gotten out my greens yet or Christmas redware plates. So these are the before pictures.



This shelf is above the dry sink in the above picture.





Yep moved this out of the foyer. It looks OK here I think.















My foyer now. Still not done with it though.



Undecorated tree LOL. My kids get to do this one this year. All the ornaments will be hung on the same branches and from waist level down. LOL. I'll show you when we get it done.





Can't decide what to do on the shelves yet. I have tons of Santas and Snowmen but haven't gotten any of them out this year. Or I'll put my redware plates on the shelves. Not sure though.



Sorry about the quality of this picture.

Mary, things are looking very pretty. Can't wait to see it all done with your greens. I let me kids do our tree this year also. That was always one of my favorite things about the Christmas season, decorating the tree. Have a blessed day and remember God will never leave your or forsake you. ~Jamie

Looks great, Mary :)

I laughed at your comment about the kids decorating the tree and everything would be on the same branch on the bottom half of the tree! LOL How true! I think Aften finally got it this year and she spread her stuff out more :)

Have a wonderful day!

Everything looks very nice
Mary. Living in this area
We are very lucky.
A beautiful and very clean
area. Even tho I was born
and grew up in WV. I still
think this is a very pretty area with all the rolling hills.
And it sure is a big craft area. I really like Pat
Catans!

Mary, I love your home and your decorating! And the comment about the tree and where the decorations would all be? It made me lonesome for those times! Kids and decorating are such a heartwarming part of the season!
