Christmas Eve!

Happy Christmas Eve! Here is my other post on my Christmas decorations. Now that they are up I'm so glad I took the time. I love sitting in the living room with the lights on. I'm working tonight, which is kind of a bummer, but Travis and I are having a little Christmas morning, just us tomorrow, then going to my grandparents house for lunch. We're hoping to see Les Miserables later in the afternoon! I hope everyone has a good day, if you celebrate. 
 Here is our mantle. I can't resist cute stockings! The two on the left are the pugs, the two on the right were made by Travis and I for each other a few years ago.
 I wasn't sure what to do with the mercury picks this year, so I put them in my cute chippy lady head. The sequined tree this next to here is a matchbox someone decorated!
 I was determined to find some Santa mugs this year and I did pretty good! I love celluloid deer too.
 I love that little gnome! She is so sweet. She is on top of some vintage balls in a sewing table drawer that belonged to Travis' great grandmother.
 My gnomes! It turns out I found 8 this year, plus a Santa in a similar style. 
 Our deer with some mercury beads. 
 A little built in shelf next to the mantle. The bottom shelf is the Harry Potter Shrine. 
 I love that deer's jaunty pose. 
 A little tableau next to the tv. Check me out in the reflection. Oops! We bought the little piano on our honeymoon in New York. The black dog in the picture is my first dog, Haley. Such a perfect girl.
 One top of the record table. 
 And of course my pom pom tree! I am still blown away by it, even though i've had it for two years. I love the mercury balls at the end of each branch. The red and aqua balls belonged to Travis' grandmother! We have her aluminum tree too, I just didn't have room for it this year.
 This tree was a lucky estate sale find. I still can't believe it was left on the third day!
 Priscilla checking out our gifts! I bet any of you reading this who have pugs have that same gift bag! I always wrap a present for Travis in it, so I can save it for next year. The gold thing in the foreground is my color wheel.
And last but not least, Phyllis. Travis had to come pick her up because she was very irritated that I wasn't paying attention to her while taking pictures. Those two aren't spoiled at ALL.


  1. I'm glad that you took the time to decorate!!! Everything looks great! I love the deer; my brother and his wife always string lights on the antlers of theirs.

  2. Not enough words in the English language to express how much I love it all! <3

  3. FESTIVE! LOVE the mantle with the deer and the mercury beads! LOVE the pom pom tree! Have a wonderful holiday!

  4. So glad you decorated. You have such cute needs to be showcased. Are you opposed to putting crazy hats on your dear head? Our neighbors used to have one and would change out the hats seasonally

  5. It looks fantastic! Love the decorated deer. Merry Christmas!

  6. Aaaah! I love all your xmas decorations and posts-describing-these-decorations! OMG! The chipped lady with all the mercury sticks in her head looks like a fifties' New Years' card illustration come to life, I love it. The Santa mugs are also epic. Merry Christmas to you guys!

  7. FINALLY! All the Christmas decorations. I love all the Santa mugs and the silver tree. Your head on the wall is also very festive. YAY

  8. LOVE the mantle! The gnomes and santa mugs are the best.

  9. You have the most awesome decorating style! And such cool stuff! Merry Xmas!

  10. Your shelf looks so so cute especially in this post! How are you not tempted to leave it Christmas themed all year long??!!
