Marion's Christmas Decorating

During October I took you to Marion's house to show you what she does for Halloween and this time I wanted to show you her Christmas decorating ideas.  To continue with my Christmas posts of different Christmas ideas, let's go into her house through her back door, because it's just so cute:

Look at the cute skate wreath.  But before we step inside, let's look at what else she had on the back porch:

There were so many pretty things here.  I was with her when she bought the red deer.  We were at the Cat Springs Antique Show.

As you walk into her kitchen from the back door, this is her kitchen table:

Very festive and simple, wouldn't you agree.  I really liked it.

This is her kitchen window:

Even this gets the Christmas decorating.

This cabinet was filled with ironstone and Christmas things in her kitchen:

Can't go wrong with ironstone, even at Christmas.

Another view of the cute cabinet:

As you walk into her dining room, you can see just one of several trees she has throughout her home:

Walking through the hall, is her bathroom:

She has one of the cutest ones I've seen and this is her new cabinet she just recently bought.  Isn't it pretty.

So many cute pillows were on the bed:

I've always loved this gray dresser:

Naturally so since she bought it from me.  Look at the cute tree on it.

This cute vignette showed some of her very old doll lamps:

There are just fabulous.

Going back into her living room, these cute things were on her coffee table:

I know I always do when I've been there.  It's always so festive and pretty no matter what time of year you go.   Now on to my own decorating.  I'm just now getting my tree put up and then before I know it'll be time to take it down.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
