And then there was the mess, Nick got a new pair of insulated work pants, he put them on over his pj's.
There are those hands again.
Next comes cleanup, four garbage bags later you could walk through the living room again.
Reed is watching from the bleacher seats with Auntie Pam and Uncle Ken.

There is only one Mrs. Santa.
But lots and lots of Santas.
Then there is the elf nutcracker making more nutcrackers.
On top of that are Mr. and Mrs. Reindeer.
Atop the hutch there is royalty, and patriotic ones.
Even the Christmas tree is covered in them.
Over on one of the end tables is Mary , Joseph , and Baby Jesus .

Doesn't it look nice and crisp and fresh ?
I keep the throws on the back cause that's where my dog likes to sit.
That room divider is actually two bi fold doors attached to the back of my hutch, because I don't have enough wall space for my hutch , or a place to store it when I'm not using it. That poor hutch has been in the kitchen , bedroom , and the guest bath.
Anyway here you can see how small and cozy my living room is.
I love , love ,love the white slipcover , it pulls everything together and gives it the feel I've been looking for , so happy if finally came in time for friends and family on Christmas day.
I am really late , but I'm adding this to Faded Charm's White Wednesday.

1957 , that's one of our cousins, my sister is a teenager now , and I think she is so cool.
Look at the excitement on my face. Do you remember the Glasswax stencils we used to put on the windows ?
Wish I had that crinoline slip now.
This is 1973 , my daughter had just turned one year old in Nov. , it was her second Christmas , but the one we found most exciting , although we had to wake her up because we were so excited to see her reaction to what Santa brought.
1981 , my son was two and a half.
2010 , My littlest grandson is eleven months.
Yes! Christmas really is for and about children.
The future is our children and grandchildren.

A little fun with Photoscape...
In the entry way I just brought in the overgrown pine like plant that I got years ago, and added some snowflakes.
I like the winter feel of it !
By the way I made some changes to our Etsy shop .

Cindy Adkins from I Owe it all to Him did it again, this time she featured my Christmas mantel on her blog.
She has a great giveaway going on over there , and she has some wonderful 3 dimensional and paper art in her Etsy shop that you can get to from her side bar.

Look at the music sheets tied with twine to the lighted branches, and the umbrellas hanging from the ceiling all over the place.
Love these candle sticks !
Lots of vintage Christmas...
I found this old book on a top shelf with knives stuck in it, as if marking the good spots .
Old bottles festooned with vintage Christmas labels...
And this wonderful PINK feather tree !
Lots of eye candy...
I thought this was cute ...
