Christmas Tour Part 2 . . . .

Now for a little Christmas tour of the Living Room.

Here's the living room tree. It's a tall one.
I had a hard time getting a good picture of it.

It's mainly decorated in red, silver and gold.

Here's a better view of the top.

Here's the mantle.

I only decorate these window ledges at Christmas.

One of my favorite things in this whole room is Santa's hat on the bannister. He left it last year, but he'll be back so I'm leaving it out for him.
Sometimes the simplest things are the best.


  1. Simply elegant and beautiful. I, too, love Santa's hat on the end of the banister. Sweet touch!

  2. Your place is beautiful, the decorations so clean and lovely. I, too, love the Santa hat. That is just plain cute.

  3. I must not let my husband see a picture of your very tall tree. He gets very jealous of anyone who has a bigger tree than we do. Every time he passes by our tree this year he says "Harumph. We should have gotten a bigger one".
    Your home is just lovely Thelma!

  4. Beautiful tree...and I love the hat!

  5. The pictures are beautiful. You have such a lovely home. All the decorations are wonderful but your right, the Santa hat on the bannister just adds such a personal touch. Thank you for sharing a glimpse of your Christmas.

  6. Thelma, you have a beautiful home, with or without the gorgeous decorations for the holidays. Your mantle is just amazing. How do you ever keep your white carpet clean?? With a dog, no less! I am envious of your tall tree. I would love a tall tree. Someday when we have a taller home, I suppose.

  7. I love that Nicole's husband gets "tree envy"!!

    Very nice post, T, as always!

  8. Very beautiful.

  9. Beautiful home and beautifully decorated. Love Santa's hat on the banister. Maybe he'll forget it again this year ;-))

  10. Your decorations are divine, but the Santa hat on the bannister is the cutest thing I've ever seen!
