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.
