The house is all decorated and ready for Christmas. It's rather simple, but not overwhelming that way.
I decided to decorate the mantle with Nativities this year. I was needing to start all over with some of my decorations after having lost some of them.
This nativity I found at the thrift store for $3.00. The little glass nativity also for $3.00--which I have plans to paint silver. The nativity board was a find from T.J. Maxx.
I just love the star and the angel! The star was a thrift store find again for that magic $3.00 and the angel was made by an online friend Linda Matson.
I love my little Nicole Sayre angel! Found at the thrift store just last week for $1.95! The candle behind her I scored from Kohl's last year for $5.00. So I guess I have a rather thrifty theme going on here as well.
The main Christmas tree, tall and skinny! Loaded with mostly handmade ornaments. And the tree topper (which needs to be uprighted) is my little paper star from my tutorial found HERE.
A little spot in the dining room. The peppermint candies I bought and used last year, saved them and using again this year and they still look new and fresh!
I don't know what the little blue and white pieces are called. I know there's a name for their style and I just love them! I pick them up whenever I find a piece.
Favorite Santa plate.
The gingerbread tree.
Little tree in the laundry room. It has a rusty star that sits at the top, but I guess I didn't put it on before snapping a picture. The homespun tied to the clothespins remind of little angels. It wasn't planned that way, they just happened.
I love my Santa mug collection! I do not like this black shelf they are sitting in. That will be a paint project come spring.
A little tree in the bathroom. The tree was .99 and the ornaments were 1.00, the pearly strand pulled from my craft supply and a favorite vintage pendant for the topper.
That's it for now. I hope you enjoyed this simple little tour. Merry Christmas!
