Christmas around my home...

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas! recognize those candles and candle holders? yup they are from my Thanksgiving table scape...

Are you done with your shopping?..

Found "Davy Crack it" The squirrel Nutcracker for White Elephant game.. decided to keep him just in case I don't win him.
I have my advent wreath on my kitchen table, the violet candles are lit on the first, second, and fourth Sundays of Advent, and the rose candle is lit on the third Sunday ("Gaudete Sunday," when the priest also wears rose vestments at Mass), a day of rejoicing because the faithful have arrived at the midpoint of Advent and anticipate Christmas. In any case, whether colored or white candles are used, one more candle is lit each week at dinnertime, the progressive lighting of the candles symbolizing the expectation and hope surrounding our Lord’s first coming into the world and the anticipation of His second coming to judge the living and the dead. The candles are kept burning throughout the Sunday supper.

Romeo's stocking needs some loot!.
Remember all the extra Toile fabric I had? well this is how I used it.

Decoupaged a few ornaments...( something Id rather not do again)

Made a table runner..

Found these plates to match at Ross only $3.49

made another table runner for entry table..

Bought this Christmas tree for $10.00 at Lowes, I made the poor man shove it in my car half was sticking out of the window. I could barely see anything got home an surprised Romeo with another chore.
Personalized these clear glass ornaments with just a sticker from Hobby Lobby...

Smile birdie...

Love at first sight!~ Found these glasses in Downtown Weslaco for $.99 cents had seen this pattern before, but never in Silver.
Kissing birds..

Every time I pass this nativity scene in my living room, I'm reminded of what Mother Angelica said in one of her broadcasts on EWTN " Stop slow down and remember why we are celebrating"

Would you like to stay a while sit in this cozy chair and read a good book? "Three cups of tea" is what I'm reading.
I hope You have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Happy New year!!
