Cabinet I refinished a couple of years ago - I love it!
Glass snowmen hanging out in the snow for the holidays. (sorry about the glare)
Just to the right of the above cabinet is this little table - this can be seen from the front door.
Stockings hung in the entry since we don't have a fireplace. Our stockings were made by my grandmother and of course I don't have any more of that fabric to make one for Ashley. One of these days I will get around to making new ones for everyone.
and the big tree in the living room/den.
Combined with the trees from the last post that should be eight trees.This is the tree that has all the ornaments my kids made in school, ornaments my grandmother made, gifts from friends, exchange ornaments and even a few I made myself going all the way back to when I first learned counted cross stitch. It is my favorite tree! I will try to get some pics of ornaments but I may not get around to posting again until after the kids leave.
I'm running out of time if I'm going to get all the trees posted!
This little tree is in the other guest room on a bookcase that is between the twin beds. It stays up all year and I change the ornaments for the seasons (unless it is a season I don't have ornaments for yet - then it is just bare)
Bed on the right
Bed on the left
Fireman tree is at the top of the stairs, going into the game room. (it's really more of the hubby's man cave - he watches football up here when I want to watch something else)
A few of the Santa firemen - there are others perched here and there around the game room
Looking back from the game room the open door you see is the twin bed room, toward the right are my sewing room (which we won't be photographing anytime soon) and the guest room I showed you in the last post. The guest bath and stairs are to the left of the open door.
That's it for the upstairs. I will try to get the downstairs pictures posted over the weekend before the kids start arriving. Baby boy and his bride will be here Monday and the other two will join us on Tuesday. I'm so excited - it has been a long time (6 years) since we were all together for Christmas!
if you want before pictures when Timothy is doing a project.
I was not quick enough to get a before picture of my pantry but just picture a dark hole behind the pantry door. I put up some battery operated lights a few years ago - they gave out decent light but they kept getting left on and the batteries would run out. Each one took 6 batteries and I had two of them so that turned out to not be a good solution, but Timothy came to my rescue at Thanksgiving.
He added lighting to my pantry! I can't show you a picture with the light off because the 'switch' is the door. Open the door and the lights come on, close the door and they go off! Is that kid not a handy fella to have around? Bonus that the pantry door doesn't get left partially open anymore!
I'm still fluffing. Best get back to it.
ps - I answered the question about the ornament from the last post in the comment section of that post.
