More Christmas sparklie goodness...

Just thought you'd like to see the rest of my Christmas decorations. I love this little tag on my Christmas tree that says, "Celebrate the magic and wonder of Christmas. Love, Santa". I don't do much Santa decor at Christmas, but I do love this little sparklie tag.
I broke down and bought a fake tree this year. I miss my real ones, but this was just more practical space wise. My living room is tiny- I mean, cozy- so this slim tree has been the perfect size. The past few years I've been collecting red and silver sparklie goodness to adorn it.
I just love this little church. There is something about white churches in the snow with glowing windows that I just love. I think that they just glow with warmth and comfort.
These little houses give me the same feeling...
And this is another picture of my mercury glass-- from the living room. (The dining room and living room are divided by a fireplace that can be seen from both rooms.) I love bringing out my Christmas pillows. I love the little punch of red in my home this time of the year.
And this is my little Christmas village. I haven't decided how to light it up in this location--maybe some battery operated lights? This little village just looks more magical when the windows are lit up.
I hope that you've enjoyed the little tour. It's raining this weekend, so I'll be nesting and finishing some projects today. I've been busy with mini and bracelet charm swaps, so I'll be posting about them very soon! (I promise!)

It's beautiful! I love your slim, cozy tree. Love the red!
I have to have fake trees, I have allergies, so I miss the real thing too.

Everything looks beautiful, Jill! Your tree is so pretty and full of gorgeous ornaments. I love the look of the garland on the fireplace.

You're a girl after my own heart Jill, I love your tree and I love how full of decorations it is! Your little houses are beautiful, and when it comes to lighting - go electric - my battery operated ones chew through batteries! Most of all I love your blue chair with those gorgeous cushions!
