Decking The Halls

 Each day I have been decking the halls with Christmas around the house.
Here is my Christmas china cabinet.

Earlier this fall I bought a new china cabinet HERE
and was struggling with things to put in it.
Well, it's full now - thank you Christmas!

Let me show off some of my Christmas treasures.

I have a small collection of The Bearington Collection, this is "Holly Belle"

Isn't she the sweetest bear!

Loving my red polka dot mugs right now.....sweet deal for $1 at Dollarama.

I have a fair size collection of Nutcrackers.  I have whimsical, Santas and different countries.
I just love the ballet production.

Cute little Mr. Reindeer peeking out from the soup bowls.

My musical snow globe.
Snow flies around while sweet Christmas songs filter through the room.
There is something about the "Try Me" button ...... I am always pressing them!

Love, love my collection of Santas.
Here Santa is getting to his next house on a canoe.
I bought him this year at Kohls.

I love Christmas!



I will be joining these link parties

  1. That looks great, Diane! I love that garland you used and it ties in so well with the Christmas items you put inside the cabinet.

    Visiting from WUW! : )

  2. Looks great, Diane! Love the little bear, and I collect nutcrackers too. The polka dot mugs are very festive. Thanks for sharing and have a splendid day.


  3. Love it Diane! I'm ready to start decking the halls too!

  4. Beautiful! I love the Canadian Nutcracker and the Santa in the canoe. I am all finished outside and working inside this week. I always get done by November 20th. and that is when I officially turn on the lights and Christmas begins. We have two Christmases because my family is from Norway we also celebrate on December 13th.

    I look forward to seeing your Christmas tree.

    Have a lovely day,

  5. I also have a canoe Santa in my collection. You have put in in a festive mood and I can't wait to get started around here.

  6. I love putting up bits of Christmas here and there, more slowly over the days, so it's not so overwhelming! It's looking very festive and beautiful at your house!

  7. Your china cabinet is beautiful and fun. I love everything you did, especially the top. Gorgeous.
    Hugs, Jeanne
