"Oh"..Christmas Tree ..."Oh" ...

Here is my Christmas tree during the daylight...

Bow window and it's very hard to get a good photo of it..sorry...




Decor on top of bookcase by fireplace












Night time and much prettier than daylight!

THANK YOU so much for all your nice comments about the hankie mantle! It was so much fun to finally do it. I'm liking the softer colors of Christmas this year!






Pretty poinsettia leaves...




Fun idea from the Bachman house!

I'm almost finished with my shopping. Just need a few stocking stuffers and still need to make some cards! How are you doing with all the preparing for Christmas??

Have a lovely weekend. I'm preparing for a little gathering on Saturday and have a few things to do!

Merry Christmas!

Deb :)

Beautiful! Loving the silver this year and the sage green. I love the fun idea from the Bachmann house. I'm having a party this weekend and it would be fun to do that with the spare roll. LOL!

Beautiful indeed!

Hi Deb! Love your colors this year! Yes, sometimes I like the softer colors for Christmas too. Last year I did a Victorian kind of tree with a lot of white, and pink. This year, I am going for the traditional red and green stuff. I absolutely LOVE how your mantle turned out! I have never seen anything like it! Just gorgeous!! Where do you find those hankies?

Hugs,
Debbie

Beautiful! Wanna come decorate my house? I haven't even started yet, and we're having a big party for my husband's co workers on the 17th-YIKES!

Debby said...

I have the decorating almost done.
Ac ouple things here and there and I will be done. That should happen tomorrow.

Not much shopping done. It will be slim this year, unfortunately.
But it will be okay.

Your decorations are so beautiful. I love them all. Just love this season.

I love your tree! I had the same trouble taking pictures of mine! With the flash made the lights disappear and without the flash was a little blurry! With the daylight or at night:) Yours is beautiful!

Enjoy your weekend my friend, HUGS!

Love your christmasdecorations! Love the huge tree you have. So very pretty and festive like. I wish we had the room to put a big tree.
For photographing the windowsealdecorations, wouldn't it be an idea to use the flash on your camera?
Bye,
