Showing-off My Decorations

I'm linking up with Christina from Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge to show-off my holiday decorations (such as they are).

First, my tree...

It is a small, table top model, but it suits me well! Each year I change the color scheme. Last year I placed white lights and gold ornaments on it. This year there are colored lights and silver ornaments. What's underneath is what I like the best.

I had been intrigued by the image of Santa kneeling by Baby Jesus's manger when I first saw it aeons ago. The Christmas before my mother passed away she surprised me with this wonderful statue of the image crafted by artist Jim Shore. She also purchased the stature of the Holy Family by the same artist. Below you can see it in front of my fireplace next to my pine cone collection and twinkling bush.

I took the fireplace picture with no flash, just the lighting from the tree and the lights nestled among the greenery on the mantle.

My decorations are not complete until I show-off my ultimate ornament...

Daisy Mae LOVES to sit under the Christmas tree. My current tree is a tad too small for her to actually sit under it, but she gives it a try anyway. LOL!

I hope you'll link up and Show-off Your House as well!

Happy Teaching,

  1. This is our first Christmas with a cat... glad to know I'm not the only one with a kitty under my tree! :)

    Your house is beautiful! Thanks for linking up!

  2. We had to get a kitty air sprayer to keep our cats away from our tree!
