Holiday preparations

We'll be moving furniture and making room for our Christmas tree this weekend. The green chair, that Otis is sitting on, and the side table will be moved, and the tree will go in that corner. Not too many places in our small house to put a big tree!


The mantel is decorated and Maddie's stocking is hung.


A few more decorations. I'll be doing most of my decorating when we put the tree up.





The paperwhites grew so tall, I tied them with a big white ribbon to keep them from falling over.


Mmmmmm, Christmas candy.



And a nice cup of cappuccino while I ponder over Christmas cards.

Donna, I think this is the first post I have ever seen inside your home. It is beautiful! I love your colors (similar to mine!). Your red armoire is stunning and I want to know where you got that wonderful red rug?!

Can't wait to see more of your Christmas.

I'm going to have to do some moving and shifting of furniture too-and I have no place to move it to.

Nan said...

I love that room! I want to be sitting on one of the couches reading. Did you draw your header? It is wonderful.

Beverly said...

Donna, everything is enchanting. You have a wonderful eye for all that is lovely.

I need to contemplate Christmas cards, too.

Your house is starting to look very festive. I have a little dog who loves to sleep on the back of the couch too. Mimi

Moving the furniture to set up & packing up after Christmas are the only two bad things about decorating for Christmas! I feel your pain. And does Ottis get upset when you turn his world upside down? Reba hates it! And the Santa train gets on her last nerve! Can't wait to see it finished.

A home as beautiful and welcoming inside as it is out! We're getting our tree this weekend too ~ which also means furniture re-arranging :-)

Everything looks so pretty in your home Donna! I love your Jim Shore snowman too!

I have a small house also, and I have to move furniture around when we get our tree...it's always a challenge to find space.
