There are still some fall decorations hanging around, but the 2 Christmas trees are up and decorated. What a struggle for me this year!! Maybe it has something to do with the green lawn and crazy 60 degree days we've had. I'll put the stockings on the fireplace mantle and put away the rest of the fall things later in the week.

Christmas trees are up
The big tree is in the corner of the living room, and the presents will go under this one. It is a happy eclectic mix of ornaments from 40+ years of marriage. There are still a few red berry "picks" to stick into the bare spots, but I haven't brought them up yet.
This pencil tree hasn't been up the past few years, but originally I bought it to go in the family room. This fall I put it up in the dining room, in a spot I can see from my desk when I'm working. The lights and fall garland added some cheer all fall. Now it's decorated very simply with a bunch of icicles, a few large red balls, and several white frosty looking picks. I like it sitting in the corner next to the Christmas quilt on the wall.
The wall quilt hanging next to the big tree is something I made about 20 years ago. The reindeer and Santas are hand appliqued and embroidered. And they are embellished with some bells and ribbons.
I even hand quilted this wall hanging. It brings a smile to my face whenever it comes out as it brings past Christmas memories with it.
Do you have any favorite Christmas decorations?
