This is it...

The rest of the tour....but I'm saving a few things for next year!
In the 1990's, my main tree had ornaments of golds, burgundys, and teals. I've tried to transition it to golds, burgundys, greens, browns and creams.
The main foyer tree....
The ornaments....

I'm still using ting-ting (Chinese for curly tooth-picks)...is ting-ting OUT? If so, I didn't get the memo! I'm thinking it might be getting tired. Hmmmm........

These gold Santas (from Walmart last year) are some of my favorites!

Everything gets a tassel in the south, right ladies?! LOL!

The stocking ornament was a souvenier from some friends after they back-packed across Europe one year...I could NEV-A fit all of my stuff in a backpack! JUST NEVER!!!

For you bird lovers...


And a few of the Ho's...



The mistletoe ball...I wish you could see, in person, how pretty the angels are...

This is new this year...Kohl's had it, and I resisted the urge, so I was in Tuesday Morning, and they had it, and let's just say, "the pull" got the best of me! (Bad Tar!) This is the living room...use to have angels on the dining room table, but I tried something different this year (thanks to the new dining room color) & added a few vintage ornaments and non-vintage snowflakes...again, the white walls WILL BE CHANGED! ;o)


These angels use to be on the mantel. We don't have an ornate mantel anymore (thanks to those tv caves!), so they're here.
Now, not all, but a few more Santas (I know...hard to believe!)
The foyer...

The bedroom...picked up this one for $4 at a thrift store...

Thanks for stopping by today! Fa la la la la & Merry Christmas!!!
