Enjoying the a little cleaning....

I finished baking Sunday, and took my own advice...I sat and watched a few Hallmark Christmas movies...I am so blessed to have a hubby who actually LOVES the Hallmark Christmas movies...He will sit and watch one after the other ...without
Here are a few pics of a little decorating here and there...I would love to have all antiquey or old timey Christmas decor, but the budget doesn't always allow for replacing the old with something different....I gave a TON of my decorations away to my DIL last year and my daughter this year, so maybe I need to start thinking ahead next year and checking out Ebay and other primitivs sites to get some new ( older decorations before the holiday is upon us...
The first pic is just a look out my front door...notice the dent in te door ?? Moving does that never did anything aout i, I've wantedto paint my door red for awhile, so I was going to have hubby try to fix it when I do paint it.... here is a pic of a wall in my kitchen:

My gingerbread was a bushy old fake tree that I gave a trimmed all of the branches and trimmed a few off of the bottom...I figured if I spent that much time doing it, I was going to use it !

I had to move my whole living room around to make room for the teeny tiny tree, cause my house is kind of teeny I took a pic of the changed up Santa bench..oh and a snowman...

Here is my tree all decked out with so many sweet ornies from swaps in the past, and of course a few ditties of my pic is with lights on, one without :

Sooooo...hope everyone is having a great Tuesday !! Bless you all !

Dear Robin,
The pictures are beautiful. You have
wonderful prim and antiquey looking
decorations. The job you did making
a feather tree is terrific. I love it.
Your big Christmas tree is one of the
best prim trees I've seen.
Merry Christmas,

Hi Robin
Love your christmas decorations. That chalkboard is outstanding. I am making a list of things I want to make after the holidays for myself to get a jump on my decorations for next year. I saw some inviting things in your side bar I will be ordering to do. Merry Christmas!!!

Very pretty Robin.
I try and watch what I can on the Hallmark husband is okay with them if they don't get in the way of his regular shows...but for the most part he tries to accommodate me and watches too...and actually likes them!
Merry Christmas

Very pretty prim decorating, Robin! Everything looks so warm and welcoming.

Unfortunately I can't get my hubby to watch the Christmas movies with me. I'm definitely carving out some time this week to sit down and watch one or two by myself, though!
