Christmas Decorations - In January!

Hello and Happy New Year! Thank you for the warm welcome back to blog land. I'm really late in sharing Christmas pictures, but my mom especially wanted to see them.

I found this old sled at a local antique shop this past November. The sign was a find on the same trip and I thought they were cute together.

Entryway reindeer.

I made a mantle banner using old Christmas cards.

Kitchen hutch ice skating scene.

Our Christmas tree with a wonky top and star.

The girls thought it would be funny to put the entire package of Oreos out for Santa. Don't they know our house isn't the only one he visits that night? ;0)

The kitty is a new addition to our family...I'll introduce him soon! Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and thanks for stopping by for a visit!

You have such a lovely home! I love your vignette on the porch and the skating scene on the hutch. Actually, I love it all! Happy New Year!:-)

I think I may have told you that I moved you from "Favorites" to "Friends" on my rss feed so I wouldn't miss any new posts.

I check my "Friends" more often.

Always glad to see something new from you. :)

Welcome back!
I love your sled. I picked one up recently, as well.
The kitten is adorable drinking Santas milk.
Happy New Year!

Looking forward to you posting more!

These are absolutely beautiful, Kelli - I love them all, but especially the ice-skating scene in the hutch and the one where your beautiful kitty is drinking Santa's milk!!
Thank you so much for sharing these with us: they are creative and thoughtful and beautiful.
Wishing you a lovely week ahead.
God bless.

Okay, I was thinking that the ice-skating vignette was definitely the cutest, *until* I spied that fuzzy milk-lapper.
Your Christmas decor is indeed lovely, thanks for sharing.

Kelli, I am so happy to see you posting again! I love your Christmas decorations. (Most of mine are still up -- I need to change to "winter" ones soon!)

Love the sled -- and the little sign -- and the Christmas tree -- but my favorite is the little skating scene. Older relatives of mine always put up a skating scene on a little table in their hallway when I was a child. How I loved that little scene.

Thanks so much for sharing!!

My cat will do that if I don't cover my glass of water or milk.

I enjoyed seeing your Christmas pics. I didn't post any of mine; I guess I still can since my tree is STILL up! :)

Hi Kelli, it's never too late to show Christmas pictures:-) I just love the way you decorated and everything looked so warm and welcoming. I had to giggle when I saw all those cookies left for wonder he's got such a round belly! hehe Your kitty certainly looks like he's enjoying that milk:-) xoxo

Hi Kelli ~ I love the sled and the little pine tree outside your entryway. The mantle banner you made is so pretty...what a great way to recycle old cards! I hear you about an artificial tree...we finally went to an artificial a few years ago. I love the smell of a fresh tree, but I can do without the mess!

I always love the way you decor your house. It's always cozy for me.
