• HOUSE & HOME • O' Christmas Tree

As with the other decor in the house our tree follows suit with a rustic feel with a few not so rustic ornaments (like candy canes) thrown in. :0)



 The little red and green pillow was bought at Kirklands last year. It reads "Who needs Santa when you have Grandma".






 The red, white and blue heart above, was purchased for me by DH before one of his deployments. It reads "All hearts come home for Christmas". It has hung on every tree for the past 15 years.













Hope you enjoyed our tree!
Merry Christmas to you and yours,
Tina

• HOUSE & HOME • Christmas Outside

Here is the outside of my house this Christmas.  I didn't go all out this year but the family loves it.
Holly, burlap garland, pine cones, twigs, and feathers were used this year.

The front porch:

My ice skates are missing from this picture....it was supposed to rain so they were brought in.



OOOPS...forgot to move the cords. Sorry for the 'no soliciting' sign, but we have to keep it up so salespeople will stay away. OF course it doesn't seem to help with some. Needless to say I have gotten rather rude with a few!



and closer......

and finally a closer look at my wreath!


Over the garage:

You have to excuse the angle of this picture but it was the only way to get a full shot without the vehicles being in the picture.



A close-up view of the garage decor.

 The gate to our backyard.

And
my grandsons fiber optic snowman!!


Nighttime:



If you look closely, you can see my Devyn (grandson) and Sarge playing.


Well, that is it. Hope you enjoyed.

• HOUSE & HOME • Christmas in the Dining Room

Here is the decor in our dining room.  Majority of the decorations I have had for several years and a few were bought at Kohls two Christmas's ago. This year my decor consist of, holly, feathers, pine cones, twigs, and burlap garland; with other things mixed in.


The little red and gold plate in the foreground was a gift to my mother from her best friend about 30 years ago. She has since past it on to me. Tried to get a close-up but the detain just wouldn't come out clear.

The ORB reindeer were once stocking holders. I picked them up on cheap two years ago from Walmart. DH cut the hooks off so I could use them in other areas.


Hope you enjoyed!
