Christmas Bling

Street view

I think I am finally finished with decorating for Christmas.  Notice I said I.  Yes, I did it ALL. My hubby did plug in the lights though. I'll give him credit for that.

 
Front porch view

Many years ago I painted the big Santa on the right of the door. It was a labor of love.


Fireplace mantle

Yes, I painted the Santa on the right of the fireplace.

Christmas tree #1 with colored lights

My hubby wanted a tree with colored lights but I wasn't planning on hot pink and lime green ones. Yuck.

Christmas tree #2 with white lights

Decorated with a nature theme.

Santa collection is sitting on antique desk. Adding another wreath above it soon. I have tons of other Christmas decorations in the shed but will not be putting it all out. I keep reminding myself that what goes up will eventually have to come down.

Just beautiful! I used to paint a lot of Christmas decorations also. So glad your hubby helped out lol. We also didn't put everything out this year as some of it is packed away so nicely, (for our move eventually).

Your Santa collection is great and how nice that you have added ones that you made yourself. I have a small Santa collection but not as nice as yours! - The house looks fabulous, your neighbors must love you for it! Have a wonderful weekend! xo

You are doing a great job. Everything looks beautiful. Hubby doesn't enjoy helping with this chore? I've often thought it would be more fun to have a decorating party and invite girlfriends in. Trouble is, I can not give up control. =)

I think I have up all my decorations and we're going to get the tree in about 10 minutes but I can't find my ornaments! Unfortunately, I may have given them to the Goodwill by mistake! You did a great job!

Spray the pumpkins read and leave them out........BWAHHHHH ha ha ha. You made my day. I laughed and laughed over that one... that's why I love blogging. There always seems to be something that will make me smile.
