Around our house

I love Christmas and love decorating for Christmas.  Here are some bits and pieces around the house.

My husband's grandma made these carolers about 20 years ago from pop bottles and scraps.  She knit the toques, etc.  She passed away about 15 years ago so these are special to me.

Some faux berry letters that spell Noel.

One of my many Santas, love my Santas.

The bell from Santa's sleigh we found in our driveway about 15 years ago.

Love this little Santa on a bike, it was one of my husband's grandmas decorations.

The stockings were hung.

Some letters I spray painted and they are hung above the doorway to our kitchen.

A sleigh I painted and stamped on - one of my first stamping projects about 15 years ago!



More Santas, love that vintage ceramic one.

Created this crate from an upcycled box - a mini hot chocolate bar.
