Christmas Decorations

A few days ago my mom shared her Christmas decorations and asked others to share theirs. Since she won't be visiting my house this Christmas, here are a few photos of our decorations.

At the front door, you'll find our wreath. I bought a plain wreath and decorated it myself.
Inside the living room, the santas I painted as a teenager sit on the shelf with the clock and a mini-tree my mom made years ago. I dried a few apple and orange slices on the woodstove and they adorn the shelf as well.
The sideboard holds our two nativity sets, and we've been placing Christmas cards behind. (We have gotten more than one since I took this picture).My craft project for Christmas decorations this year was a tree skirt. I pieced it together and machine quilted it. Here it is before I cut the hole in the middle for the tree.
It fits well around the tree and other gift projects have taken precedence so I won't get a binding on it until after Christmas. Then it will be all ready for next year. And here is our tree we cut down the day after Thanksgiving!

How lovely! Your shelf with the clock looks good with your Father Christmases. You should keep the wreath photo for a Christmas card next year.

Just beautiful! And I love your new coat hanger, too!

I love how natural your Christmas decorations are! It would make good editorial in a homes and gardens magazine.
