Deck the Halls

I'm back - never abandoned the blog world - but reusing my blog to communicate with family and friends today.  I skipped over "I" moving on to "H" for the season of decking the HALLS of your home.  For a couple of days, I played house by decorating it for Christmas - HELLO RED!
I have a lot of photos - some good - some okay.  I promised Louise I'd post as soon as the sun came out, which it did today.

Welcome - Merry Christmas

Entry table

Christmas in the office

If the newly married couple come in for a few days, I'll add their stockings.

Guest bedroom - flipped the duvet to the solid grey side & added the recently found red pillows in my linens.

Larry likes to read the newspaper at the table in the morning.  To compromise I placed the
centerpiece vignette at the end of the table - out of the way.  Silver balls with blue snowflakes
hanging at each window.

My newest collection - Vietri Old St. Nick dishes.  Stocking hold flatware.  Centerpiece arrangement is in a old sewing machine drawer.  

One end of the mantel

I love red cars and trucks with Christmas trees tied on.  Made my own....

Small trivet on top of refrigerator

Made this arrangement this year.  Hmmmmm, I seem to be peeking out of the arrangement!

My "partridge" is on the limb at the top right corner.

Master bedroom; ramping up the red in the house!

Good Morning/Night pillows - had for some time; berry wreath pillow new; cover from
Pottery Barn - not new but "rediscovered"

Mantel- outside patio
Thanks for visiting.  Hope you enjoyed our home.
I apologize for letting my few readers down.  There really wasn't much going on I felt like blogging about.  Mid-fall our wonderful dog, Jasper passed.  That was particularly hard on us.
We are looking forward to seasonal activities - a visit to the Gaylord in Grapevine, TX and the Dallas Arboretum for the 12 Days of Christmas night exhibits.  Of course our neighborhood is lit up brightly and to copy a phrase, "it's beginning to look like Christmas!"

  1. Theresa, sorry to hear about your dog Jasper. Losing a pet is always so difficult. I have one that is 16 and she has had such a wonderful life, but I know that she will not live forever. Your holiday home is so pretty. I love how you added some festive pillows to the beds, what nice touch. I always tell myself each year that I want to get some holiday sheets, but never do. I just love your santa plates. they are perfect for your holiday meals. Merry Christmas and yes, I saw you peeking.
