I love this time of year in blogland! I have never seen so many beautiful homes all decked out for Christmas. You are all so talented, creative and inspiring. Thank you for inviting and sharing your beautiful homes with all of us.
My staircase banister is ready for Christmas and for all those to see who enter through the front door.
As you can see it is a very small banister which makes decorating easy.
I love this garland that I draped on the banister. I have had it for about three years and it still looks great.
Because I don’t have an electric outlet on this side of the wall for lights, I use candles on the stairs.
This is a new addition to my stairs this year. I made three of them. I used a tin pail, Christmas greens and battery operated votive candles.
I placed one on every other step with a little mercury votive candle holder in between.
Last year, I made the sweater stocking using one of my Mom’s sweaters. For those of who are new to my blog, I lost my Mom in March of 2010. You can read about the making of the Keepsake Christmas Stockings here.
I am all done with my Christmas decorating. I still have some shopping left to do and Christmas baking. Maybe by the weekend, I’ll be done with shopping and then next week I can start my baking. Are you all done with the many things to do that Christmas brings?
As always, thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments. They are always appreciated.
Christmas Blessings to you my friends,
