Hope everyone is having a great holiday season, been enjoying being off piddling around the house.  I just love decorating for the winter, some of my favorite things are frozen branches that glisten in the street light at night, red berries, red birds, snowmen that remind me of my childhood making snowmen with my sister, the deer that you see out this time of the year.  Here in my decorating you will see lots of these things, hope you enjoy your visit to my home.

Shoving furniture around again, desk has moved from across the room, love my new bird pillow tuck.

Love the blue cabinet with the snowman.

New set of deer I picked up this year, just love them with the frozen branches.

Love the little angel all dressed in blue I had gotten from TFC Folkart to add in this year.

This is one of my favorite spoon racks.

Have found real old pewter plates this year to add to my collection.

More of my deer collection.
My favorite snow women, she always comes to my kitchen where I can see her since I tend to live in the kitchen, LOL.

I love using little mice in my decorating, this one is doing her laundry with her little wash board.

New very prim snowman wishing you winter blessings.

I love collecting mittens, reminds me of those cold winter days out making snowmen when I was little.

Another new snowman I added in this year and the little doll is one that my sister, Lisa made me several years ago, my favorite things about her is her berry hair and she has little snowflakes on her coat for buttons.

Cute little snowboy.

Couldn't resist this very large snowman this year.  When Oliver came to visit he said Nana he is the same size I am.

This picture has lots of my favorite items in it, the old green grain box and the blue bowl rack with snowmen added with my favorite thing to decorate with in the winter, frozen branches.
This display sits at the end of my bed, love the snowman and the red bird.

This is a very special gift given to me by a dear friend, Bonnie, the deer came from her shop in Tennessee before she closed her shop.

A very prim snowman couple.

Love this one his hat is made from an old quilt.

This is a sitting area in my sewing room, love this snowman as he is sledding along.

My favorite gingerbread men I had gotten from my friend Marie a few years ago.

Finally had gotten those pillow covers made for my couch, love the cranberry red color in this room in the winter.

My sister Lisa made the little drummer boy a few years ago, yes he never made it out of the house to sell, love the donkey too, there is a sheep that also go with this, could not locate it, must be packed away somewhere.  She is very talented.

This has to be one of my favorite displays this year, snowmen, and red birds.

Very prim display in my dining room.
Counter top display in my kitchen.

My favorite snowman I found this year, perfect for a door display.

Display in my bedroom, love the horse.
Sorry this picture is a little fuzzy, hard to take in the dark corner.  Love the little mouse family out enjoying the snow on a cold winter day.  I hope you enjoyed my winter home displays, wishing each of you WARM WINTER WISHES.   VICKY

Oliver and I continued today with our cookie baking tradition.  I started this last winter with him.  Last month we made pumpkin and leaf cookies, this month we made turkey cookies made from gingerbread with raisins for eyes and chocolate sprinkles for their feathers, he loves putting the decorations on them.

Turned out really good and yes they tasted good too, Oliver can tell you that, he had three.

Oliver got into the rolling out part this time, I remember doing this with his dad and uncle, I still have the cookie book I purchased from school when my boys were young.  Its the little moments like this that you will treasure for a life time.  Vicky

Thought I would share a few pictures of my fall decorating before I took it down, been meaning to put up these before now, been really hectic here the last two months with my hubby having surgery, our 9 year old lab, Sadie being diagnosed with bone cancer of her jaw, we got to keep her a couple of weeks and then had to put her down, really miss that yellow dog, yes just lots of life happening.  Hope you enjoy seeing some of my fall decorating ideas, will all be coming down shortly for all the winter decorating begins soon, yes, takes me forever to decide what goes where and of course lots of items and furniture gets moved around.  Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Love this pumpkin head, decided to use him in this basket on my den door.

Favorite area, love the makedo chair with a pumpkin doll in my den area, this area changes with the seasons.
