♫These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things♫

Here is a peak into my home this Christmas. Below are a few of my favorite things .
This is my kitchen tree with all candy and food ornaments. Of course there is real candy nearby.My dining room with Shabby Chic Christmas colors, a white feather tree with last year's crowns and apothecary jars filled with vintage baubles as the centerpiece.

Here is my living room.
Last year I was ambitious and made that little village.


I think this is my very favorite place at Christmas. This is the entrance to my guest bath. Those pastel tree candles I picked up at World Market years ago. I never have burned them because I have not ever seen them again to replace them. The two white cake plates are made out of candlestick holders and plates.

This tree is in my entry hall and is all miniature tea pots, tea cups and organza rose lights.

My family room takes on the more traditional Christmas colors. Around the fireplace is an assortment of snow people. The window, on the right, is a glittery snowman painting that my mom painted.
The best deal of the season is at Costco with 25 feet of real garland for $15.00. I love it swagged around this window to our backyard. The antique silver "Winter Dreams" garland and snowflakes sparkle at night with the mantel lights.

Thank you so much for the peanut butter ball recipe!! They are now my favorite. It's a good thing I'm keeping them in the garage right now or I would be 10 pounds heavier :))

Very, very beautiful. First of all, I love the ornament idea from the previous post. What a great gift! And all your decor is so pretty. I can't believe how many trees you have. I do good to get my one decorated. The kitchen one is too cute. I love the guest bath entry photo too. Wouldn't mind a line at the potty if I could look at that while waiting!

I hope you guys have a very Merry Christmas!

Love,
Allyson
