Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Christmas Tour of Homes

I hope you can forgive the mess and work in progress. I have known about this tour for many weeks now and like always...I procrastinate:) Ever since the day after Thanksgiving, I have tried to finish decorating. Notice the word tried. So, enough whining and on to hosting.

Come in and sit a spell. I went out on a limb this year and tried to mix me some colors. What do you think about the pink with the red? I love to try new things. Sometime it's a hit. Most times it a miss.

This is a nativity set I received from a Sunday School student of mine. I believe it's about 12 years old. It is my favorite Christmas decoration!

Now on to the mantle. Notice the halo in the mirror. I've never saw that before now. It's right over the stable.

On to the tree. My favorite thing about the tree, is the hand made star on top. The kids made it.

I tried a different spin on hanging the wreaths. Ribbon. I love ribbon.

My very first time of purchasing chargers for my plates. And for actually setting a table complete with napkins and everything. You would have thought I have thrown the table out, by the looks I got from the boys when they came home to this. I love to rock their world;-) I just realized that my drinking glasses are not in the picture:) lol!!! I have some pretty crystal goblets...but seeing that I have only 1 table and this being THE one...well, the less you have to move to eat the better:) lol!!!

Hope you enjoyed your stay. Wish I could have served you a piece of pecan pie...maybe one of these days. Please come back ya'll...ya hear!

Merry Christmas,


P.S. Thanks BooMama for hosting!

Love your porch and entryway. You have a lovely home. Thanks so much for sharing. Also...I love your saying about small towns under your header...ain't it the truth sister...ain't it the truth. I'm a small-towner myself. Well said.
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to You!
