I am doing this post early so that when you hear from me next we should be on our way to TEXAS! We will be leaving for Texas on December 17th.  I am hoping to at least take a few pictures of our move... but knowing me, I will forget in all the confusion.

Since this is my first year blogging you have not seen my house all decorated for Christmas. Soooo.............. I thought I would show you. I really will miss this house! Although the Texas house is nice, I love this house.
I have been attached to only one house before first little house!

Christmas seems like a wonderful time of the year. Everyone is so happy and jolly most of the time. I love decorating and my mom always decorated her whole house and that's probably why it is special to me.

This is the tree in our family room. It is decorated with ornaments I have collected over the past years. I have a few that were on my mom's tree when I was a child, some from vacations, some from my daughter's childhood, people gave me some and some my husband and I bought.  Each one has a story and that's what I love! History!!!! Christmas Past! Memories!

This is the tree in our living room. Phantom has passed, but Caesar still loves that spot on the couch!

I like the white tree against the red background!

The fireplace in my family room is awesome in this house!  I love trees and have been collecting since I moved here.

This tree is in my dining room.....I love how this tree sparkles so much, that it is there all year round!

You can see the above tree in the mirror!

This ceramic tree my mom made in 1977. I use it as a night light.

This tree is in my little bathroom. Yes, it is pink! It sits next to the pedestal sink. Isn't the wallpaper pretty!

I have realized looking at all these pictures again that I collect quite a few things: trees, snowmen, pitchers, teapots, cups, jewelry, recipes, shoes, candlesticks, dishes, candles to name a few......
Oh my!!!
Do you collect like me?

I hope you have enjoyed the tour of my trees. I certainly did! It's so nice to reminisce about Christmas's past.

Please some back again......
May Jesus  richly bless you  during this Holiday season. May you find your way to Him!

Blessings my dear friends,




  1. Your home is gorgeous and all of your decorations are just wonderful. Have a safe move. Hugs, Marty

  2. I love your white tree up against the red walls. This looks so pretty!

    I made a move during the Christmas season/new years back in 1991/92. It was a very busy time with packing, putting the house on the market/selling it, and relocating to another state from Texas. We celebrated our Christmas early that year.

    May God bless you,

  3. SWEET furry babies!!! Hope you don't mind I painted them!

  4. I agree, I love your white tree against the red wall. You did a beautiful job on all of your Holiday decorations.
