Christmas 'round our house

When we first looked at our house with the realtor we commented how fun it would be to decorate at Christmas. And here we are! It has been a lot of fun and I'd keep it up year round if I could, haha :) Here are some glimpses around our house for Christmas, makes it such a pleasure to be at home! I've always wanted a kitchen tree and I started one this year with a baking theme. Last year I received 12 Days of Christmas dessert plates & they fit perfectly on the plate rail in the kitchen. I've always loved copper cookie cutters & they look so pretty in front of windows :)

I started collecting the Dickens Christmas Village last year & just love it! It looks so cute lit up at night. I found the German pyramid at an estate sale last month, it was $30 & it retails for about $400, so I was pretty excited! I grew up with one of these that my mom has & have always liked them.

Anyway, enjoy our version of Christmas at home. We wish you & yours the merriest of Christmases and many blessings in 2011!
