It's starting to look like Christmas!

My house is starting to finally look a bit like Christmas!  Since this is my first Christmas with a red theme in my family room it was fun to decorate in the traditional Christmas colors.  The rest of my house I do in pinks of course!
I painted this santa back in 1979 when I used to do ceramics.  He looks pretty good for his age doesn't he?  
If you can read upside down you can see the date is Dec. 10, 1979.  I used a very thin paint brush to do the writing.  Must not have known about pens in those days. LOL  
I bought these beauties at the Bellagio Hotel's gift shop a few years ago at half off.  They actually survived the flight home. :) 
This cute tart warmer is from Yankee Candle.  

The sugared tree and the evergreen tree are from Crate and Barrel.
I got this cute santa stocking last year at Macy's Christmas store.

Remember I told you I bought Mike a leather recliner from Ethan Allen for his birthday?  Well here it is!  I was really worried about buying an all red chair but I think it looks pretty good and he is very comfortable in it so that is what really matters!  
Happy Decorating!

  1. Hi Denise :) Goodness, I think it's been awhile since I last visited! Love your traditionaly decorated mantle, especially those cute santa stockings!! The red leather chair really looks good in there. I hope you will show us pics of your pink xmas decorating :) I've got my tree all up and decorated, and even a couple smaller ones too, like my pink tabletop tree.

    Have a wonderful rest of the week!!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda
