Sleigh Bells Ring, Are You Listening...

 Got a ll my fall stuff put away when the weather was really warm. So it's officially Christmas time here at our house. Just a little greenery on the deck to greet the guest.
 Santa has left his red long underwear once again at the door on the sled.
 For the last several years I have opted for two pencil trees together instead of my big tree.
 Frostys hat has landed atop the tree!
 I grudged up a few dollar tree Santa hats a few yrs ago and just love them on top of a small tree near the fireplace.
 The old mailbox slot cabinet above the couch.

 I chalked an old window frame that I found along the road this summer. Junk Sale!

 Santa on an old couple of wooden crates.
 This year is the first yr. I have put a sled on the kitchen island. Saw it on another blog!
 Used some garland and a jingle bell or two along with an old grudged up tag.

 Dining room table.

 An old tool box my cousin found for me all gussied up for the winter holidays. I find every yr. I'm starting to put out more winter things that I can keep out all season. Id like to get to a point some yr and just use winter and junk to decorate with. Old tools, attachments. Ill have to start looking this summer at tag sales.
 I was thinking about something new for a few of my living rm. cabinets and I thought aha a couple old rusty mailboxes I have out in the yard. I grudged up a few envelopes and addressed a few and slide them in the mailbox!!

 A country Christmas with a few mason jars and lights. It reflects so pretty at night. Another old window frame I chalked up.

Bring on the snow!! Have a great week!!

Dawn, you're home looks amazing! I love all the wonderful little touches you put all over (and outside) your home. Maybe it appeals to me because we have similar tastes!!! I did almost the exact same skinny tree, with the top hat, in my office this year. They could be twins!!!
Anyway...lovely everything!
