...it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I thought this was a cute craft idea...and it 'sounds' simple enough to make:

Also, I thought I'd share my annual video of my holiday spirit. This one is about 3:45 minutes and some of what you'd see in my house for the 2012 season. Here is the link:

  2. Annie, absolutely loved the video! Your home is decorated beautifully for Christmas. I love all your Santas. You must collect Santa like I collect snowmen.

  6. What a cute wreath that is. I've seen similar ones like that before but I have a soft spot for snowmen :)
    Your house looks so festive.

  7. Anni, Love your header and also the way you've decorated your house. It's always a pleasure to visit you at Christmas time. Doesn't feel much like Christmas to me this year. Since we are moving, we opted not to put up a tree or decorations. Makes me kind of sad. This is my favorite time of year.

    Drop over to the Writing Nook when you have time and see what I made for Michelle as part of her Christmas present.

    Wishing you and Bud a very Merry Christmas.

    Blessings,
    Mary

  8. Thanks for the slideshow... I loved seeing some of your pretties... And that song is gorgeous. Is that Josh Groban? Sounds like him --although I haven't heard that song. NICE.

    Merry Christmas.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  10. To increase my Christmas mood, so far not very much, I had to see your decorations, they are always so beautiful ! I just finished mine. The fact that I had been in Egypt again and only came back on the 9th, had let me almost forget Christmas !
    It seems to me that you don't blog as before. I scrolled a little through your last posts.

    1. ...no, not this time of year. Ever since we both got 'into' birding, we seldom stay home long enough to blog.
