Christmas too!

The Open House decorating continues...I wish you all could come to the party! Consider yourselves invited!!

Pantry door. Since this is a new door I couldn't resist decorating it too.

I love the cherries!

Don't you just love this time of year? This little cookie and candy tree always makes me smile! No, it's not edible. I made the gingerbread boys but they are salt dough ornaments that I made years ago.

Santa's been around awhile and looking a little battered but I still love him!

I added Santa's boots last year...from Target.

I made this wreath and have glue gun injuries to prove it! LOL! I haven't decided where to put it yet.
I planned to put it on the front door but changed my mind.
I want it to be inside where I can enjoy it more often..I'm thinking about hanging it along the stairs somewhere.We shall see!

Share what makes you smile at Christmas in your comment!



  1. Oooh, more goodies, and aren't these cute! :-)

    I'm honored that you want to use the post as a guest post for that day, Dena.

  2. Your blog looks so festive - as does your house!

  3. I love the ornament wreath. A few years ago I bought a ton of really nice silver and gold ornaments after Christmas. The plan was to make an ornament wreath for the following year. When I got them out to start making it, they were so pretty that I just couldn't put the glue gun to them.


  4. Love your decorations! I like both your wreaths shown here! I need to get several more ornaments for a couple of mine though. I really wanted to do the ornament wreath this year, but I don't know if I'll have time.

  5. Love,love,love,love that weath. Did I mention I kind of like that wreath? It is adorable. I love all the different balls, they just work! Those glue gun injuries are well worth it!

  6. Beautiful!! LOVE the wreath! I am like you, things I love I want to put where I can enjoy them!

    Love Santa's boots too!
