Christmas Decorating Part 2

As promised I will show you my dining room decorated for Christmas.  Again I really tried to simplify.  I'm still not there completely, but it is less than most years.  So instead of talking I'll just post pictures. :-)  Most of these pics had to be taken with a flash and this room is not this bright.  I will be adding a few close up shots on my Picturetrail.  I'm still working on it since I worked the weekend I didn't have time to update it.



 I did end up giving in and bought a new tree for the living room.  The boys like it now so I guess it was worth it.  I ended up moving the German twig tree to my bedroom and decorating it how I wanted.  So all of us are happy. :-)

I'm really enjoying the beauty and simplicity of your lovely home! We were going to be at the 150th this July, but decided since we were at the 135th and the unveiling of the Longstreet memorial, we would instead go at another time when it wouldn't be so crowded and we could have more room to move around and walk the battlefield again. Now I have a little sz. 3 Yankee uniform (we're a mixed-uniform family, for I made Confederate uniforms for our boys) to make for our little grandson before next summer. :-)

All I have to say is that when I saw a picture I thought to myself 'oh I love this' and then another picture and it got better, and then better....I love how you decorate. Very pretty and serene.
I love the use of the cranberry strings.
