Oi Yei,Yei...

or in other words.....this is a lot of work!

 My new Valerie Par Hill carolers....I love them!!

 Of course, I had to put out my black Christmas tree!

 I laugh, because he looks like he is sitting on the POT....he actually is sitting in a chair I just put in on a crock....He reads the Christmas story...

And this is just a start!
Show off your cottage Monday at Cielo's.
Tabletop Tuesday at Marty's.

Wow, you jumped in there and did some decorating! Love your new carolers, they're beautiful and look like they're really singing. I like Santa sitting on the pot, oh you mean he isn't really?!?! The house is looking good, love the tree with the heels and purse, how fun!

Hi Ceekay! I love your new little carolers! You've got some pretty vignettes going on and lots of cute Santas. I'm sorry you couldn't find the burlap stuff for your tree. Don't you just hate it when you have that great idea and can't find the stuff to do it with? I've been there before. Your tree with be gorgeous and I love your girly black one too.
Be a sweetie,

Aw, your Santa's are so sweet! I have "read aloud" Santa too. My kids have always loved him. I got him when my older boys were just toddlers. Your carolers are wonderful :)
Glad you're doing well. I pray for you often.

Hi Ceekay,
Thank you so much for visiting me.
Wow! you already have done so much Christmas decorating...I haven't even started yet..We have been working on the house adding window trim and a kitchen banquette. Also had a fireplace gas insert installed, but had to have the fireplace rebuilt for it. What a mess, so I'm still working on the clean up and painting. I loved seeing all your beautiful decorations, the carolers are delightful! I love them too.
Have a sweet day and hugs,Elizabeth
