Decorating for Christmas

 Is there Christmas decorating going on at your house? 
 Or have you finished and now you're sitting back enjoying your Christmas treasures?

What do you prefer when you decorate; a specific theme i.e. snowmen or do you mix it up?


My friend, Wendy, likes to decorate with snowmen and trees. 
If you visit her blog you'll enjoy a sweet array of snowmen and trees vignettes.
The picture is from her blog with one of the adorable vignettes. 


Maybe you prefer to decorate with Santas everywhere. 
 I used to collect Santas.  I don't have as many as I used to but I still enjoy using them here and there.  This was at my house several years ago.


My favorite thing to do is to decorate my kitchen with Gingebread boys and girls. 
I found this large cup with the accessories about seven years ago and it always graces our kitchen table. 
 
I haven't done much decorating this year but I did pick up a couple of new snowmen. 
Snowmen and Santas are available in abundance but the G-Men (gingerbread men) are elusive. 
That makes me a bit sad :-(
 
I'd love it if you would share your thoughts and ideas about Christmas decorating.
 
In Friendship!

Sadly, haven't even started yet. I'm hoping to get the tree up this Sunday. It's our only free weekend day before Christmas. Other than a tree and a few wallhangings, I don't do much decorating at all. Merry Christmas Darlene!

Every time I see a gingerbread man I think of you! :-) I do a little bit of everything. LOL Have a happy day!

Lori said...

I mix it up and every year is a little different. Everything is decorated except the tree.
Love your Gingerbread men decor!!

I don't do much decorating because I don't have the room to store the stuff. Mostly I enjoy decorating with quilts :)

I havent even started yet, but I have great plans for the weekend.

love your gingerbread centrepiece Darlene! I love gingerbreadmen too and yes,they are hard to find.

G-men--that's hilarious! I like poinsettias and anything handmade. Our tree has lots of handmade ornies from the kids when small through mini stockings I made with our names. Which reminds me, my hubby doesn't have one!

Jeanna said...

Hi Darlene! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the snowman and I have a few Santas but my decorations are truly a mix...not just one theme.

I do have one gingerbread boy and one girl (stuffed) that sit on top of my kitchen cabinets... I love them too.

Thanks for sharing the link to your friend's blog and also for sharing pictures of your decoration.

Hope your season is going well :)

Your decorations are so pretty! I do no decorating in CA, and I left my little two foot tree sitting on a table when I left the South last year. So it'll be all ready when I get there next week. LOL.

Millie said...

Love your Christmas decorating Darlene. I have a gingerbread bread in the kitchen, it is hard to find gingerbread decorations. Hope you and your family have a joyful Christmas.

Michele said...

I love your decorating :-) Especially the gingerbread man! You asked how we decorate? I like to mix it up, but I have plenty of Santas and snowmen.

Melanie said...

That Gingerbread fella is a cutie!!!!

Carol said...

Your gingerbread cup always makes me smile! Not much decorating going on here since we plan to go to the kids right after Christmas.

Quilt Hollow said...

No decor here this year. Haven't even been out and about to see what's out there. Enjoy your holidays...just popped in real quick from DH hospital room. We have Internet here and not at the house yet.

MARCIE said...

I love seeing your gingerbread men out again! So cute! And those little trees are darling too. Why is it that we need more decor each year?
