The Halls are Decked

Mini felt stocking advent calendar

Vintage balls in an old tool caddy

Old Christmas postcards with new Christmas cards

See the star, on the piano? It was once on top of the tree, then the tree fell over, not on Spencer, now it's just patiently waiting..

A variety of vases with vintage postcards clipped to the tree trimmings

This is where my new sewing machine, ahem, that I get for Christmas will go. The dining room.

The real reason we celebrate.

Are you all decorated?



  1. Love it! When are you coming over to decorate my house?

  2. I've thought about it? You've been so busy! Looks beautiful!

  3. How is Santa going to get down the chimney? No wonder you haven't had time to do anything else!! Good idea, come next year for Thanksgiving and I promise we will decorate for Christmas before Emily's birthday.

  4. I have an idea. Someday, when you're children aren't little devils anymore, you should open a bed and breakfast. I will live next door and clean every toilet and bathroom all the time if you will let me stay at the bed and breakfast when it's decorated for Christmas. Sound like a deal?

  5. My star is sitting on my piano too. But your tree is looking less naked than mine - Jon took off all the ornaments at his level, which is, unfortunately, about 2/3 the height of the tree. *Sigh* Isn't it awesome to have little guys during Christmas? :)

  6. Well sheesh why don't you hang up a wreath or two?? :0) Talk about Martha Stewart Living's dream home of ideas for Christmas holiday decorating!! Can I come live in your home until Christmas. I'll leave the day after so you can come back and put it all away...cause I'm thoughtful like that!! :0)

  7. love your ladder and we have staircases painted the same...Lezlee
