Random Decorations

No tree this year because we will be out of town for Christmas.

But I still had to put out a little Christmas cheer.

Even my lovely village that I haven’t put up since 1999.

My table usually looks so beautiful when I have all my Spode Christmas dishes out.  I haven’t decided whether to take them out of not  – just for our enjoyment.  Not having Christmas here this year!

Maybe we will have company next year and I can go crazy with the decorations.

  2. Everything looks bright and cheery. We skipped a tree last year because we were out of town. Makes it a bit easier.

  3. Love your tabletop Christmas village! I would so love to begin a collection like this. I also like your Santa and his reindeer on the chaise lounge – just adorable!

    Thanks so much for stopping by Janie’s Porch! I am prowling through your blog – and enjoying the puppy pics so much! And the falling snow on your background! Blogger doesn’t offer that in a template. So, I love looking at WordPress blogs!

    Merry Christmas to you!
