Christmas is about THE DECORATIONS.
And as it turns out, a blogger named Boomama knows lots of other similarly-decoration-obsessed bloggers.
Click on that button and see lots and lots and lots of other beautifully-decorated homes. I am 469th out of 469. So there's lots to see.
Or hang around here and see what I did.
So here are some pictures.
When you walk in, the first thing you see is the mistletoe. If you look up, that is.
The living room, looking into the dining room. Tree is up. Roses on the coffee table. Pinocchios on the CD shelf. Musical bears on the little sideboard. Ornaments on the dining room chandelier.
The mantel with flower arrangements, some nutcrackers, and a couple of tiny nativity scenes. And stockings. And a fire.
Here's a blurry shot of the tree. It's a tall, skinny artificial tree--I don't love it, but we have allergies to deal with, and it fits the space.
A close up of the tree. Sock monkey ornament. Another miniature Pinocchio. A Pokemon ball made by my son. Garlands.
Establishing shot of the dining room showing red candles and lots of flowers, also some Christmas cards on the Victorian desk.
A close-up of the centerpiece on the dining room table.
A close up of one of the radiator covers with cyclamen. And weird battery-powered window candle all fuzzy and out of focus.
The corner cupboard gets a wreath, too.
