Decorating by the Fire with Harry

We had a fun visit last week in Illinois and got home yesterday. My mom and I put her tree up while I was there. I think it looks so pretty . We decided to put it in an old box that she has. I think it looks so cozy ! I also had a fun day decorating with my friend Jamie at her house. Everything looks so pretty. Go check out her slideshow on her blog The Miller Homestead. My sister Kim's house is also all decorated for Christmas and looks beautiful ! I'm hoping she'll start blogging soon , so you all can see her pretty decorations ! When I got home I had a package waiting for me from Gina over at Cat Nap Inn Primitives . Gina and I did a swap and in the package was the wonderful primitive Santa that she made ! I love him~ thanks again Gina ! So this is what I'm doing today~ decorating with my fireplace DVD going, listening to my new Harry Connick Jr. cd. I lit my new Yankee Mistletoe candle and it smells so good and looks so pretty with the candle hugger I bought from KM Primitives !I wish I had a fireplace, but my DVD will have to do. It does create a cozy feel in the room and even has the crackling sounds ! :-) I love the new Harry Connick Jr. Christmas cd ! If you are looking for a new Christmas cd I would go buy this one or buy a couple of his songs on itunes! I've gotten pretty much all of my decorating done. I had to rearrange today because my dogs were bumping into my tree where I had it, causing ornaments to fall off . They ate a couple of my cinnamon applesauce ornaments that fell. I'm sure they enjoyed that treat. :-) I'll be making more anyway. I have a few small things to finish up before I take all my pictures, but here is a little preview. I included a picture of my mom's tree for you to see ! Hopefully by next Monday I'll have all my pictures done. I can't wait to see everyone's Christmas decor pictures ! Hope everyone has a great week !

I am secretly (well, not anymore!) in love with Harry Conick Jr. I need to go and get me that CD.
I do have one of his. He is absolutely adorable!!
I loved him in Will and Grace and in Hope Floats.
Love the Christmas decorations.
Have a great Monday~

I think that the little tree looks gorgeous and that is a great photo of it. Wish we could come and see your house. I found the perfect place to hang the wall hanging you gave me.

Everything is looking great...I can't wait to see more! And I'm glad to see I'm not the only one without a fireplace that uses the tv as an alternative:) I don't have a DVD of one, but I ALWAYS make everyone watch the "Yule Log" on tv on Christmas Eve with the tree lit drives my hubby crazy! But I think it makes it feel more Christmas-y:) Glad you had a fun trip too! Hope you had a great day today! <3Lauren
