I hung an antique ornament from the chandelier in my dining room.  It is really old and the top is broken. I love the shape – perfect drop to hang by itself so I used a dot of hot glue to attach the cap so I could hang it.

If you look closely – you can see the wire I used attach the glued on cap to the bottom crystal on the chandelier.

I just started working on the table setting – will have more to show you in a few days.

The tree is not completely decorated yet – waiting for Kelly and Mandy to get home – they like to help decorate it. I did put on a few base ornaments and used the leftover pom-pom yarn that I used to make snowflakes window treatments last year, as garland.

Christmas Mouse

If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, then you may have already seen Nutley.  We don’t have an Elf on a Shelf in my house – but a mouse about the house. 

He gets moved all around.  I bought him at a local retirement community craft fair.  An elderly gentleman made him.  We usually put him in places where a certain cat named Trax won’t get him.

Now that the decorating is done – I can concentrate on wrapping. Once that is completed – time to sit back and enjoy the season. Thanks for coming along on my Christmas house tour.

    1. Hi Lynne – I love how the cedar looks, but it does dry out very fast. I wish I could spray it with some sort of preservative to keep it fresh looking. I hope you have the merriest holiday. XO

  1. A mouse about the house…that is adorable, and I like it so much better than an elf on the shelf!

    1. HI Melinda – He is so adorable. The man who makes the mice is so cute. He sells many in different positions – standing. sitting, etc. We named our mouse Nutley, after a character in one of my daughters favorite Christmas books. Happy Holidays

  2. Diane, everything is simply stunning! I so love your colors! I am so behind with everything this year for the first time in my life, and seeing your beautiful home is pushing me into 5 alarm panic mode! :) somehow, though, we always get it it done, don’t we? Thank you for sharing your gorgeous decorating with us and have a wonderful Christmas!

    1. Thanks Cindy – I feel the same way. I would have liked to have it done a few weeks ago so I could enjoy it longer, but that didn’t happen. I kept the decor to my foyer, dining room, and family room. I normally do more in my kitchen, but just lined the window sill with the cedar. I would be overwhelmed doing anymore this year. Life does get hectic – so much to do – so little time :) Merry Christmas to you and your family – I hope it is a very merry one.
