Christmas Time Is Here...

The inside of my house is somewhat mostly done. The outside still looks fallish. The sweet potato pie is in the oven, the cherry cheese cakes are chilling in the fridge and the salad is ready. This tree in the living rm has a old black hat theme. Lots of snowmen with the tall black hat topping the tree.
This grouping is to the right of our fireplace. I love to display in my collection of ice cream freezers. Some wooden candy canes drape this tree along with the candy striped snowman.

On top of the dresser in the living rm sits the snowman with a prim lantern. He sits on an old makeover stool







Thanks for the hints on the old tin taper lantern I had been looking to purchase. I found a place that still had them and I got it in the mail. Now I almost wish I had ordered two!



These couple of lazy guys sit to the left of the fireplace on another makeover stool and I just love them! A couple of sampled pillows cozied up in an old crock, next to some dried sunflowers.





I tried a pair of Santa's long johns on the front door this yr. I will have another pair in the laundry rm. but I kind of like this.






Some greenery and lights nestled up onto of the TV cabinet along with some Kansas sunflowers in a jar, a few wire baskets and a wooden house. It looks so pretty at night all light up.







This tree is in the dining room/entry way. It has a stocking full of goodies at the base of the old crate.








Many of my trees have these small coffee tags dangling from the branches. I enjoyed making them and thinking of different wintery saying to put on them.











Love them!























My old ladder is full of some of my graniteware I collect. Old Santa is here to greet anyone at the door. I placed an old screen behind the ladder and I love little trees in any crock. I wrapped some old rusty wire around the mouth of the crock to give it a prim look.













This tree is in a large crock outside my laundry rm in the kitchen. Just decorated with some old coffee stained muslin and tags. Well I need to get around and head over to my parents house here soon to help Mom. Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! God love all of us that WILL be out there tomorrow shopping! Yea!

I love your snowman tree, I've never seen one like it! I also like your tin scraper lantern. I remember when you're were looking for one but I'd never seen one. I like the flicker candle inside it. Your home looks so nice!
