Christmas Decorating

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We sure did! It was a very relaxing and calm day, so you just cannot ask much more than that!

I am not very timely with my blogging. However, I do keep my promises! And I promised more decorating pics of my here you go! I hosted a couple of Christmas parties at my house this year, so that was a lot of fun!

This is the outside! I never got a picture at night with all the lights on, so just use your imagination! It really did look pretty! Notice the wreaths on the dormers...I hung outside the windows to get those things to stay! I still cannot believe they stayed up!Photobucket

Dining room. I did not go crazy in here, just some greenery on the light fixture with ornament balls hanging and a centerpiece.Photobucket

I got this little house in Frankfurt, Germany at the Christmas Markets! I love it!

It was really fun decorating this year. Since this was my first Christmas in my new house, I had to start from scratch decorating! That was a bit of a challenge, but I already have ideas for next Christmas!

Can you believe that it is almost 2010?


  1. The decorations are great, but I REALLY enjoyed just coveting your home!!! Looks so cozy, Tippa :)

  2. Your home is gorgeous!

  3. Tippa... oh my gosh! Your house is SO pretty. I love the decor outside and inside. You did a GREAT job decorating for Christmas.

    Thank you so much for the card. I appreciate your prayers concerning my Grandpa. Christmas was definitely different this year but we're hanging in there. Love ya, girl!

  4. Your home looks so wonderful! Will you come decorate my house next year?! :)

  5. Just lovely! I could sink right in and not want to leave :) How good to see you here and I look forward to seeing more!
