Although we have a fire place… we have no mantel, so this turned out to be the best place to hang the stockings. The Reindeer Stocking Holders were at TK MAxx find and the christmas tree was a gift from my friend Liz
This year I added some fancy bows to the staircase decor… I love how it makes the whole display just pop!
in the backround you see all our family and friends pictures…… still one of my favorite things in this house
Our Nutcracker Trio…. The Illini Nutcracker was a gift from my son and the Cubbies Nutrcracker was a gift from me to him. I am wondering if he will want to put that in his apartment..hmm?
Edeltanne Immergrün, wir Bürsten wie die Fürsten! Not kidding I found this christmas tree toliet bowl. cleaner about 28 years ago in a german gift shop for 10 marks. THere was no way I was leaving that at the store….. May the lord help me, if anyone in this house ever “uses” it!
Of course the towels are christmas colors! The towel rack comes from my parents Motel… Love that I have one in my home
This wooden christmas tree was a gift from a our former land lord Berni Käter. I treasure it as it always reminds me of the special time when we lived in the apartment above the Käter Family
