Christmas Decorations and Sunday Blessings

Welcome Home Harry Bailey! I have a Christmas village of Bedford Falls that I set up every year. This year I found a few extra pieces on Ebay to add too it. It's A Wonderful Life is my favorite holiday movie . Many years ago Target had a village set for sale so I purchased several items and have never added to it. That was before Ebay I think. I am going to finish out the set over the next few years. Here are a few pictures of what I have.

Here is the Christmas tree in the living room. Sorry the lighting is not very good. This is a much smaller tree than I usually decorate, so it is full of ornaments. I have downsized quite a bit this year and went with a much smaller tree in the living area.

I love mercury glass and found some candlesticks at Target , so I added them to my winter wonderland theme on the mantle.

I love the shiny ornament tree , and I bought a new silver garland this year. I am trying out new color schemes, since I usually only use red and gold in my holiday decor. I am planning on experimenting with new ideas and colors. Hopefully next year I will be able to go all out with my decorating. I need to sit down and reorganize my Christmas stuff. It is time to simplify and get rid of so much of the older things. I donated many things this year to Goodwill to make room for the newer items I brought in. Donnie had a tree and ornaments also, but we gave them to his children to use in their homes. This will be our first married Christmas together so I hope to bring in some new traditions and make some wonderful memories. I am so thankful for the many blessings I have received this year. God is truly amazing!

Today will be a quiet day for us. The kids are not coming for lunch , so I am just cooking for two. Donnie has gone on a motorcycle run for Toys for Tots and will be back later today. Hope you have a wonderful day and remember on this Sunday all that you are thankful for in your life. Have a blessed day!
