Decorations 2011 {Part 1}

Everything is finally decorated...well, as decorated as it's going to be this year.  There are no lights in the yard and some random things are are not out and displayed, but by gosh, I've got all four trees out & decorated, so I'm claiming a victory. 

I'm going to do decorations in parts so I don't wear anyone out with all the photos in one post.
Today's Decorations post is going to feature the entry, dining room, and office...

Part 2 will be my extra bedroom, extra bath & the Master bedroom & bath.  Part 3 will feature the kitchen and the living room. 
Though I didn't get lights out in the shrubs and around the sidewalk, I did put some lights around the front door.  They are basically the same as the past, only I added some red deco mesh to the garland...

Day...


 
Night...

 
When you walk into the front door, this little table would be on your left...


Walk a little further and you will find the door that leads from the house into the garage.  This "Angel Wreath" or feather boa wreath is on that door...

Then you will come to the dining room...


This little table sits just outside the dining room, so I'm including it Part 1 of the decorations tour.  I'm happy that this little santa is there because he has quite the history.  He was painted by my grandmother in 1973, so he has been around all my life. 

Last year after Christmas I was spending some time over with my grandmother when we were sorting out some paperwork and stuff after putting my grandfather in the nursing home. I commented that I always liked him and she said, "well you should take him", so I did. Don't have to tell me twice! I had forgotten that I took possession of him and was super excited to find him when I started unpacking the tubs of Christmas decorations this year.

Between the entry and the living room, I have a large art niche...



Finally, I have a little tree in my office...


It's pink.  Yes, it doubles as the Valentine's tree...
I really wanted a tall skinny white tree in here this year, but never found the right one or the energy to seek one out.  Maybe next year.  I also have my Santa Judges in here...
