I decided to share some of my decorating with everyone this year. I have even started wrapping some of the presents.
This is my collection of African American Santas. I have been collecting them for years (usually 1 per year). When I was putting them out this year my DH said, "I don't think you have room for another, but I will find room.
The is another collection that I have, but I did have to stop because I don't have anymore room. My last one was a couple of years ago, it was a Quilt Shop.
This is a hand appliques and machine quilted mini quilt. On Santa's list is all the names of my family members.
This is a combination of 2 different nativity sets that I bought several years ago.
Finally this is our tree. We have 3 cats so no tinsel. We also have 2 dogs so nothing hanging too low. They have not touched the tree but they may bump it. Our decorations are divided into three categories: 1 for myself (I collect angels and special things), and 1 for each of my sons (they get a new item each year, and when they move out they may take them to start their own tree.) The angel that sits on top I bought the year my mother passed and named her "Elizabeth" after my mom.
I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year.
