Stockings were hung.........................

Well, we don't have a fireplace here so had to hang them somewhere else. But the decorating is done for the most part and I have to say it turned out better than I thought it would. This little house has a very small living room so it was a bit tedious to find a place for everything. The tree I have is humungous and it takes up a lot of space but I just love it. We'll just have to walk around it, lol! The little angel on top has been in our family for a long, long time. It looks just like my daughter, Miranda, when she was a baby with her short curly strawberry blonde hair. That's why I bought it and it has adorned the top of our tree for the last 20 years or so. The Christmas Village sits atop the entertainment center as Old World St. Nick stands watch. All the other little Santas are hanging out on the shelves. The nativity scene on the coffee table and the stockings are hung in the door way. This little house has some archways in each of the two door ways that lead in to the family room. They have lights in the them and are really cool but they have no shades or covers so I just put the lighted garlands up there with some hooks and hung the stockings on either side. Looks pretty cool, I thought.The dining room has the table all set with the poinsettia dishes and red/gold centerpiece. The buffet has the red candle sticks with a lighted garland on it and some of the Christmas coffee cups that I have received over the years. My favorites are the two closest to the center with the red striped handles. Just love those cups. The china hutch has my small Christmoose collection and the Santa is Coming sign and beside it is another Old World Santa that I found at a garage sale a few years ago for $4. Great find, all he needed was some hot glue. I just love Christmas! I hope you all have fun decking your halls and hanging your stockings. May you have the very best of Christmases ever!!

Your decorations are very beautiful! Wish I was closer to see it in person. Love the stockings under the arched doorway.
