Time for...

Hello again dear friends, I am so excited to be participating in another holiday home tour! I thought adding my name to the recent tours would motivate me to finally finish my decorating. I've been burning the midnight oil and I hope you like what I've come up with. If you viewed my last post, you saw LOTS of pastels. Today as promised, I will shift into red and green gear.
Buckle up!
First stop is my kitchen. If you are a regular, you have seen this hutch before. I love to change out the displays to go with the season. The snowmen decided to come out and play this year and I had to let the gingham junkie in me have her fix too. LOL!
Close ups...
This piece cracks me up. They look like they had one egg nog too many at the company Christmas party. The Byers carolers have nothing on this trio.
This is my Mary Engelbreit tree.
The details...






Alright, we have come full circle with "the wall" You have seen it in it's Spring, Summer, and Autumn glory. This is the Winter look.
I had to throw in another jar for good measure. I mean really, whose home show do you think you're at? LOL!
This stuff will probably get a relocated. This is the Island (corner) of Misfit Toys, but I had to slip in another gratuitous jar shot.
Same drill for this corner, minus the jar. I do love that Reese's box though.
Pretty knickknack on my window ledge. Next stop the family room...aka "the cave"
This is the "toy tree". A friend gave it this name because I used to display a lot of vintage toys all around it. The vintage toys happily gave way to my daughter's playthings which now reside by, in, around, and under the tree. Actually just plug in any preposition you want, and that will be an accurate description of the state of affairs in the vicinity of this tree. I tidied up ever so slightly for the photo.
Favorites...





Corners...
Ooh, and Santas on parade!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I told you it would be a practically purple free post. LOL! For a complete list of today's participants, please pop over to the blog of our fabulous hostess Heather. Hope you all have a holly jolly week!

Whow a lot of Christmas at your place! Here in the Netherlands we 'cannot' start before December 5th (our = the real Santa's birthday) with Christmas decorations, but I think in that case December would be too short for you. Thanks for inspiration!

I absolutely lust over your Mary Engelbreit tree! She's my favorite artist. You've done a magnificent job with your trees and house dec's. You must have a warehouse to store them all in! Thanks for sharing them with us.
