It begins at the back door.

Come on inside to see where the obsession goes from here.


Some of you may have thought you’d already seen my Santa collection, when I showed my hutch filled with Santas here.  Yikes!  There are a few more Santas on my shelves. Ho-Ho-Ho!

We finally got our tree decorated.  I’m a tree traditionalist.  Real trees, with many ornaments dating back to our first years of marriage (and that was a long… um, it was awhile ago.

Some ornaments on this tree also date back a lot of years.  I thought we might not get either tree up this year, since our premature grandson has thrown us all for a loop.  He is being transferred to a different hospital tomorrow, and his big sisters are staying at our house.

Of course, with grandchildren helping, some of our ornaments ended up shattered on the floor.  I think we have enough to make up for it though. (Yes, we put up two real trees.  I know, I’m crazy, but I have fun being crazy – that is, until I have to take it all down.)


For Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life, I’m sharing our bedroom Christmas mantel.

Thank you for stopping by to see my Christmas overload.  Be sure to go visit A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.

Our 2 1/2 week old, (now 2 pounds), premature grandson is having some heart problems.  I would appreciate your prayers.

And today, I’m sharing two of them.




For better or for worse, I’ve been tweaking the vignette on my new sideboard..

and on the mantel, both of which I just showed you last week! Sadly, I’ll be tweaking all over the house until Christmas Eve!


It’s so hard for me to leave “well enough” alone. I always THINK it can be better. I usually decide that the tweaking didn’t make any difference and could have even made matters worse! It’s just another disease of mine (in addition to “collecting”, I tweak – all of the time, everywhere)!  Hi, my name is Laurie, and I am a collector and a tweaker!  Call in the psychiatrist(s)! 

I’m linking this post to the Boring to Better event at Savvy Southern Style.  Thanks Kim for telling us we could link Christmas décor without showing any “before” pictures.
