Christmas Entry

Hi all!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We were blessed to have all of our children, grandchildren, and my 93 year old mom at our house all day.  We had a perfect day of family, food, festivities and faith in Christ!

I have loved seeing all the blogger's beautiful Christmas decorations!  There are so many beautiful ways to do things!  Don't you wish you could do it all!

I got the walls in my entry done several weeks ago and just haven't had the time or ambition to post. Now our entry is all decorated for Christmas and I can share both sides of the room with you.

I added some sparkling trees, gifts and a wreath to our new French buffet.  I love the mix of silver and gold. A small artificial tree fills an urn.  

All of my greenery is artificial.  My husband has severe allergies and having real evergreen in the house bothers him.
A little French wheel barrow is filled with a cream poinsettia on the other end of the room.  I love the white and cream poinsettias and I grab them every year at this time as there usually aren't as many available as red.  I always get my mom a pink poinsettia because they go best with her home decor and they're just so pretty!
I recovered my antique settee to match the chair in this room.


I like having the plaid fabric in here as well as the living room, which I'll show you soon!  I am still tweaking some of the decorations in the rest of the house.
I filled our baker's rack with more poinsettias.  My daughter knows I love them and bought me a couple also.  She painted this sweet angel on a piece of wood when she was about 7 or 8 years old.  I love getting it out every year.



I hope you're enjoying the holiday season!  I am loving shopping for our sweet grandchildren and planning surprises for each member of our family.  

I'll be back soon with more Christmas decor around our house!

"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.  And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly.  But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.  "She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."  Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: "Beholdthe virgin shall be with child and shall bear a sonand they shall call His name Immanuel," which translated means, "God with us."  And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife,  but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus." Matthew 1:18-25

  2. Hi Lynda! Your foyer looks so so pretty! Just enough decorations to say "Christmas" but not sooo overdone that it screams. I love the peaceful feel. I just finished decorating my bakers rack which is the first thing you see upon entering my home. I did it all in whites and silver with white poinsettias (which I too love). Mine are faux so I just tucked a few on the shelves around the mercury glass. I've been painting for a few weeks and just don't have much energy left for decorating so I know how you felt after finishing your foyer walls!lol I just repainted my 2 story foyer and then the dining room - Who paints their dining room the day before Thanksgiving anyway!!lol Looking forward to more of your holiday décor. Take care - jeannette

    1. Thank you, Jeannette! I laughed when I read about you painting before Thanksgiving. I once invited people over for dinner and then decided my dining room didn't look nice. I spent the day cooking AND wallpapering my dining room before they came over! I got it all done and even enjoyed dinner but I was younger then! Hope you have recovered and are enjoying the holidays!

  6. Very pretty! Your buffet is pretty with the silver on the blue. Your settee looks pretty in the new fabric and I like how you've set it in the room. My mother is also 93 and we had a nice Thanksgiving with her too!
