Christmas decorating well under way

It's getting so close and I am so far behind this year
I have been so busy this last few months
I hope things will calm down soon so that
I can concentrate on this lovely time of year

My gorgeous long legged snowman
He has taken pride of place in the entrance porch

Well I finally made a start on Christmas decorating,although
there is a lot of tweaking to do yet
I just pulled out most of the boxes and plonked everything down where
it would fit. Not great yet,but definitely getting there


Sitting room Mantle

 Dining room mantle

Collection of Santa's

My lovely, cute Myer Christmas Bears

My little Shabby Angel tree topper.
She has been with us most of our Married life,50yrs
Would never part with her,even with her curled wing 

Goldy,my Russ bear has a long wait for his Christmas dinner
He's making sure he gets pride of place at the dinner table

Even tomatoes and bay leaves look Christmassy
Couldn't resist taking this festive photo

A little reminder of what Christmas is all about

A lot more fiddling to do before it looks right

I wonder what all of you are up to with your decorating
Time for a browse of my favourite blogs
Links are on my side bar
Join me it's fun to see what others are doing in their homes

Jeanette, I had to smile. A lot of your decorations are the same as mine. Those little Santa's with their legs hanging over the mantel piece are just like mine. The sleigh is similar and the reindeer are the same vintage only mine are very OLD gold looking now.
I hope your week is kind to you.
Hugs Kay

You have so many cute little spots. I like that you include the teddy bear. I have one up in my son's room - he's 24 and doesn't live here but the teddy bear makes me happy.

Your home looks lovely and inviting, as always. There's something special about a mantle dressed for just makes me feel at 'home'. Yours is beautiful! I love all the dangling red and green legs, lol! xx
