Not a Creature Was Stirring...that's because it's way past my bedtime!









Can't take credit for this little guy...I bought him at a cute little boutique recently.





Pottery Barn inspiration...not even close, but it still makes me happy. These are plastic grapes...maybe that's my problem. : )





A BIG THANK YOU to Living Locurto for this giveaway I won.


> Go on over to see the adorable free Christmas Tags she designed and is letting us download. A very talented blogger. Thanks again Amy!!!

Very pretty decorations.

Lady Laura said...

Lovely photos! Your home (including the outside) is the very defination of festive! You've done a great job on the "Pottery Barn inspired" candles; they look just great to me, but if you're truly not happy with the plastic grapes, might I suggest real cranberries? They're cheap and won't break down as quickly as real grapes.

I love the bird in the glass container..wonderful!

Sher's Creative Expressions said...

Oh grapes, cranberries, what's the difference if you like them and they make you happy ~ right? The grapes you can use all year round, the cranberries, not as much. There, your idea is ever better :)

Blessings,

Sher

Love your Joy signs! So cute!! Your blog header is really neat too. Merry Christmas!

Miss G said...

I love the way your red berry sprigs "sprig" out of the corners of your garland! Make sure your plastic grapes aren't flameable before you light that candle! i only say so as a girl who put raffia in with her candle and set it on fire. :) Kelly

Miss G said...

p.s. I love your snow effect! Kelly

Great decorations! Love the garland and the bird!

Chris said...

You have snow falling on your blog! How perfect is that?! Love all the pictures. You know what you're doing!!

Traci said...

I 2nd the craniberry idea. They're fireproof too! Well, unless there's a lot of fire and then you'll probably have craniberry sauce but by that point the craniberries will probably be the least of your worries!

Paula said...

Beautiful! Love the front door! How inviting for your friends.

JuJu and Family said...

Your decorations are so beautiful. Great job!

Sun-Kissed Savages said...
