Loving Christmas Decorating!!!!!

This is what I love most - Christmas decorating (and, of course, all that goes with the holiday!!!).  This is the whole reason I wanted to start blogging.  I saw Boo Mama's Christmas Party and spent the entire holidays perusing them all about 3 years ago.  I knew that I wanted to be part of that.  I finally began my blog and I thank The Nester for carrying on the tradition.

My front door - got to have animal print!!!























But, only the pizza delivery comes to the front door!!!!  We use the side door and are greeted by jingle bells!

















Now the tour begins.  Just had to show more animal print.  I mod podged the "Believe" paper mache sign using animal print tissue paper. 

















Hanging opposite this is an ornament wreath I made (like all the other bloggers!!) -

















Of course, where would the Elves do their laundry but above my washer & dryer -


































In the kitchen I also have my computer area.  These are on the shelves above it -


































Onto some cloches and family Christmas photos -

















Another cloche with a glass nativity and some "Believe" wooden letters (again mod podge/scrapbook paper) -

















I'm sure by now you want to have a little snack.  Try some coffee & delicious Lemon Scones (baked by Daughter Cardigan!!) -

















Now we start the first of my 13 trees!  In the dining area are the Southwest Tree and the Mittens & Skates Tree -





























































Next, we enter the Studio (office/craft room) and the Beach Tree, Flamingo Tree, and Shabby Chic Tree -
























































































In the Guest Bathroom I have a Bright Colors Tree and accessories -







































This has turned out to be my favorite tree - Brown & Turquoise Tree.  It is in the Master Bedroom and looks gorgeous with just the tree lights on.  I think the colors really "pop" on the white tree.  This tree is a "half" tree.
This Purse Tree is also in the Master Bedroom -

Another cloche and family Christmas photos -
This Sweet Shoppe Tree is in the Master Bathroom, along with the Santa grouping -
Our last room is the Living Room.  Here is the Disney Tree -
Oldest Grandson's New York Yankees Tree -
Younger Grandson's Tool Tree -
The "Snowmen Reunion" Mantel -

Side by side entertainment centers (need all the shelf space I can!!) -

Our 7' Main Tree that has an assortment of ornaments that are dear to us - or I just love love love!!!
Lucy loves the decorations, but she is worn out from all this work!!!!

Wow, you do a lot of decorating! I usually do a lot,too, but this is an off year. I just put up one tree. Yours are all beautiful, but I don't envy you when the time comes to take it all down! :)

I came over from your comment on my blog. I enjoyed your posts and have become a follower.
