Deck The Halls

With Boughs of Holly....



Fa la la la la la la la la.....


Tis the Season to be Jolly...


Fa la la la la la la la la...


Don we now our gay apparel...


Fa la la la la la la la la...


Sing the ancient Yule tide Carol...


Fa la la la la la la la la la...


See the blazing Yule before us...

Fa la la la la la la la la...


Strike the harp and join the chorus...
Fa la la la la la la la la...

It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas...

Around 
"My Red Saltbox"

Well "hello" to everyone! It's been awhile since I have updated this blog.
 ***hanging head in shame***

Good intentions and all but my scrapbooking life and that other BLOG and ETSY shop of mine keep getting in the way!

Enough on that. Let's take a peek at some of my Christmas decorating for 2013. I have lots more photos to share over the next few days but we will start with these...K?

~Welcome~

Come on in...


It's been out with the old and in with the new here at MRS.  The skates on my front door were ones I had used indoors for a few years. This year I picked up a fresh wreath and moved the skates outside. Same with the "Quaker Oats" box. I've had that box for about 18 years. I purchased it in Vermont that many years ago. This year it decided it needed to be outside with pine and berries tucked inside it!




This is a peek at the inside of the front door. The box is filled with fresh greens and little prim snowman.



My dining room table... I filled a bowl with fresh fruit and greens. Lucky for me I live in the woods and just need to go outside with my trusty pruning clippers to get my greens. 




I used an antique sifter over my mantle with a fresh pineapple and greens. I do have some artificial red sprays mixed in along with that artificial wreath on my table.


My real fireplace is in my dining room. I will post more photos in a day or so. In my family room I just have a small electric fireplace. I've got my favorite swan a little green garland. Another antique box on the floor with fresh cut greens. This room also holds my large tree which I post photos of soon. You will have to keep visiting me to see it! ;)


Over the years I have scaled my style down and back on my Christmas Decor. I'm liking a more primitive simple look with fresh greens and natural elements. Here is a wooden bowl in my kitchen.


This is a silver collection I have in my dining room. Just some candied berries tucked in a coffee pot.


A peek at my pewter collection. More of the same type of berries tucked in.


Downstairs in our "media room" is where I keep my small primitive tree. This one is filled with snowmen and my kids treasured handmade ornaments.


Mr. Snowman hiding out under the tree.


A glimpse at my kitchen table. A pewter bowl with pomegranates, a wreath and some berry candle wraps.

Ok peeps! That's it for today. I'll get some more photos edited to share soon. 

Happy Holidays!

New photos to share!

I started this blog as a way to catalog some of my photography and home life and keep it off the scrap blog. Problem is... I don't have a lot of time to do it!

My friend and design team sista inspired me get out and take some photos again.
So here is a little preview of what I took today!













These are all things in my yard! Maybe tomorrow I will take some photos of someone else's yard.
Enjoy!

Xmas Photos 2011

In no particular order as is my life...




I love my carolers. I don't have it set up in this photo but I used battery operated candles and placed them on the stairs with the carolers. Looks pretty. :)


Table with a winter centerpiece getting ready for the big day....

Mantle

Inside front door

I love them...

Santas...



My tree in  the family room has glass ornaments. I try to collect a few new ones each year. Someday I hope to have every bit of space taken up with an ornament!


This is my snowman tree in my sitting room. I like to get one or two new snow peeps a year to add to the collection!
A tradition in my home is gingerbread houses or men. More on the making of these to come. My girls do them every year.
Cookie baking... more to come on this as well. ;)



Christmas table all set and ready to roll!

I think Santas stocking stuffer "Mr. Sock Monkey" was this years favorite!
The aftermath...
