Cozy Christmas

Does everybody save their Christmas cards?
All set for cookies and a cup of coffee.

Yum that cake looks good enough to eat!


Nutcrackers lined up on the dining room buffet with a few less pieces on them after being loved by the Thanksgiving children.



Sweet faced Santa's




A cozy spot by the fake fire that one of these days I hope to find time to sit in.





The little Santa collection that the kid's have gotten me over the years.






A lonely frog stocking that is too cute to stay in a box.







A not so cute faced Santa beside the TV.








Hope you all find a few minutes to curl up and enjoy this cozy time of year with those you love.

  3. Just lovely! I am having to live vicariously through you blogging ladies this year - my baby is 19 months and I just can't put very much out... It's fun to see your pictures!

  5. That mantle made me freeze. It's absolutely beautiful the way you've decorated it. I just got to the US (living in Germany) to visit my parents. We need to get things looking like your house. My favorite is the santa on the lower right.

    I've been saving my Christmas cards since we got married 34 years ago. Just today my hubby asked what I was going to do with them as we are in the process of cleaning out. I really hate to get rid of them. I may use them for my craft projects or at least scan the precious ones (from loved ones who are no longer with us).

  11. I do save Christmas cards. It's fun to look back at how people have changed when pictures are included. Kids grow up in those pictures.

    Your home looks beautiful!

(That is your daughter right??..oh if not that is really embarrassing!) Your Christmas decor is fabulous, love the mantel and that frog stocking...too cute.

    Hugs,
    LeAnn:)

  19. I save my Christmas cards, too. I have every one I've received since I moved out of my parents' house. Is that bad?
