Y'all have seen my house every Christmas that I have written this blog. So this year I am just sharing a few things.
Our tree...it changes color and even has a remote. This is amazing to a little girl who grew up having to get off the sofa, walk over to the television to change it to one of three channels we received from Chattanooga, Tenn. When we were first married and living in Athens, Ga we had one of these big antennas that you control with a dial on top of the tv set. I was amazed that in addition to Atlanta, we could get Greenville, SC stations!! So a remote for a Christmas tree is truly a big thing.
The arrangement on the coffee table. I used the big container I ordered from Olde Town Market
My arrangement on the mantle. There are two flanking the big screen tv.
Reindeer are back in their original spot. These ceramic reindeer belonged to Mama G. She won them as a door prize at a Christmas luncheon she attended one year. This drum table was also Mama G's. You may remember how Marvin had it redone for me last year. Well Mama G put the reindeer on this table in her living room and the sleigh held her Christmas cards. Last year the reindeer were up in Marvin's man cave but I knew they belonged on this table this year.
Lantern Lane on the Tea Cart.
The dining room trees and table.
The Santa Claus was made by Mama G and gifted to us. It is just so special to me.
The top of the China cabinet. I left the blue and white and added these big picks since I was not using them on my tree this year.
Nana's treat can. And a Holiday Cookie Tin from Byrds Cookies in Savannah.
Landon Santa. This comes out every Christmas....I love it. Thanks to the Kindergarten teacher who came up with this idea.
My gingerbread house.
My Nativity. As I have said before, I used some money that was a gift from my daddy to purchase this nativity the Christmas after he passed away. I think of him whenever I look at it.
Grimmwood.....my version of Smoky Mountain Christmas. Those bears....I just love them.
Our tree, my dough bowl and the kiddy corner next to the tv. My grands say that my old doll, Sherlynn is creepy. No she is not. She is about 62 years old this Christmas. Give her some respect.
Hope you enjoyed visiting Nanaland and Grimmwood.
