our christmas home

boy, i haven't been around here much lately. and i am super late for the nester's christmas tour of homes. but better late than never, right??? my decorations are pretty minimal this year with a newly cruising/just about walking, into everything and everything into her mouth 11 month old!

so without further ado - welcome to my christmas home!

our front door
a close up of the wreath. i made this about 3 years ago and it has really held up well!
the mat right inside the door.
the hallway as you enter
a "gift" my husband's grandmother made - i leave it out year round because it matches my kitchen.
this mirror is over our couch. i got the wreath at target for $2.50 and hot glued the ornaments on.
i usually use this glass bead garland on our tree. but this year we opted not to put the big tree up because of buggie's uncontrollable curiosity and mama's need for sanity! so i filled up the bottom of this hurricane vase with the garland.
a nativity ornament that is usually on our tree found a nice home on this decorative jar on a bookcase in the living room.
our bitty 18 inch tree. it will find a new home in buggie's room or in the kitchen next Christmas.
our stockings hung over the television. i found the stocking holders a couple years ago at the dollar store! i bought 4 of them with dreams of two little ones to fill the others one day. i was so happy to hang buggie's stocking on one of those hooks!
my favorite Christmas decoration - my nativity. i just love this! the crosses hang here year round. i thought the imagery of the Baby Jesus under the cross was pretty touching and a great reminder of why Jesus was born in the first place. this picture does not do this justice!
thank you for stopping by my place! after your visit to my home jump over to the nesting place and take a look around some really lovely decorated homes that often cause me to be envious, but in a nice Christlike way (is that possible? ha!)!

The black door is elegant and the wreath is striking on it! I, too, love the nativity pieces under the crosses. Merry Christmas & thanks for "opening your home."
