Christmas at My House Part One

Since all my sewing projects right now are gifts and the recipients may check my blog, I can't share my them with you until after Christmas. So I thought I would show your my Christmas Decorations. I think we will start with my great room. This is a room that includes an eat-in kitchen and small informal family room. Let's start with the tree. First of all you must know I love sunflowers and although they are not a traditional Christmas flower, I think they look beautiful with red and green.
Here's little Oliver enjoying a nap under my Santa at Home wall hanging. Teresa look closely and you will see last years ornaments on the side table!
 Next I added some Christmas quilts to my wall of quilts.
Finally there is another favorite one above the old re-purposed  dresser that hides the TV. I also added a lighted garland, a cute Santa, and some ceramic deer that I painted when the kids were little.
The next picture is another side table with some fun treasures. A tiny quilt shop given to me by a friend, a pine cone tree made by my son in scouts, a snowman teapot from my niece, a Santa that bounces down a pole to find his sleigh, and finally under the copper dome is a magical little tree made by my daughter.
A garland hangs in the arch between the kitchen and family room.
 I decorate my kitchen chandelier and hang wreaths on the pantry doors. 
 My table has a quilted topper with a poinsettia.
  The little shelves to the side of the sink have some unusual Santa's and friends.
And just when you thought this post would go on forever, one last picture. This is my hutch with some of my seasonal teapot collection and some precious ceramics made by my Mom when the kids were little(the two Santa's on the bottom shelf).
 I hope you are enjoying the holidays and finishing any projects that you have in the works. Come back for a peek at part two in the next day or two!
