Got Started on Decorating!

Happy Monday Everyone! Well as many of you, I also spent some time this weekend getting started on my holiday decorating. These are just a few things that I have finished, and I hope to bring you more photos as I complete more rooms.

This photo is in my living room, above my couch. My husband built this shelf for me, and I just love it. I opted for a very simple look this year, and didn't bring out allot of my normal decorations. So far I am really liking this, but we shall see what each new year brings.

This is a dough bowl that filled with my start of Belsnickle Santas.I am hoping to gather more of these wonderful guys during the after holiday sales. I would love to have about 5 more, I think they are just wonderful, and very prim!

Just a little decorating done to my antique high chair........I love to add something just about everywhere. I have a real passion for stars if you hadn't noticed. I have them all over my home.

This is the top of my entertainment center in the living room. I am not done with this I don't think. Need to tweak this just a bit more, but it is a start.

I wanted to take some night shots......so here are just a few. This is a feather tree that I purchased on my outing a couple weeks ago. Normally I have a 6' tree in my dining room, but since we are entertaining this year, I felt I needed the extra space, so the little tree will have to do.

Another night shot in my dining room of my antique serving cart. I have another dough bowl filled to the brim with boughs, lights and a darling prim ginger boy. I have my tart burner going with Apple Pie tarts, and it smells wonderful!

This grapevine tree was the start of my love for primitives, oh gee, about 18 years ago. I fell in love with it and it looks wonderful in the kitchen at night as a terrific night light.

This crock is one of my favorites, and a very precious gift. I filled it this year with pip berries, greens, and wooden candy canes.

I love my table top bench, but I think more tweaking needs to be done here also. I am sure it will change many times before I get it the way I want it.

I took a prim candle holder and filled it with rose hips, and put snowman in the center. More bobbins complete this little chimney cabinet.
Well it is a start, but with much more to do. We will be doing our family tree this weekend. Hubby is in charge of the lights on that one, so need to wait till he has a chance to work his magic. I still need to get some things done outside too, so be sure to stop back by real soon to see more. Hope you enjoy your Monday, and till next time...........Blessings to All
