Tablescape #7: Santa and Snowmen with a bit of ME

I worked and reworked the decorating of the living room yesterday.  This is what I ended up with for the tablescape.  No dishes, but I think it still counts. 

Thank you to  Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hostessing this week's Tablescape Thursday!

Hi Manuela, thank you so much! I think that I got those trees at Ross or Bi-Mart ... someplace that didn't cost too much.

Take care,

I'm just opening up a box full of snowmen. Your post is an inspiration for using them. Love your whole display.

All your Christmas balls are absolutely beautiful.

It's not EZ to decorate, huh? I done mine but riffed off again coz, I think it wasn't good enough. Now, it's still naked, until the week-end.

TY for sharing your inspiration that I will bring into my home.

Happy TS...

When I look at the photos of your decor I can smell Christmas! Does that make sense? The scent of pine trees and cinnamon a fire burning in the fireplace. I REALLY have to pull out my Christmas stuff!

Hi Chie,

I know, it takes a lot of planning and you have to be in the mood. I like it how it is now. Next is the tree.

Hi Lisa,

I am glad that is what the photos evoke, but, lol, we have no woodstove or fireplace, and I had to give up on real trees 4 years ago. They just got too dry. Maybe I should just simmer up some mulling spices? I hope we get a woodstove some day.

Glad it helped to motivate you!
