Christmasing In The Heart of the Home

Hello, Dear Ones! I've been Christmasing in my home as you all are doing too! Today I thought I would show you our Heart of the Home - the breakfast room and kitchen - all Christmased up! I've got lots of snaps to show you, so I'll just shut up and let you look. :)



























I know these are Scotties, but hey, they look so much alike! :)













Couldn't leave my girls out!
They asked for a little ding and I put these jingle bells around their necks.
I've just been informed they said "BLING"! Oh...



Had this olden tray since I was a little girl





And to all, a good night! :)

Hope you enjoyed seeing all the Christmasing I've done in my my kitchen and breakfast room.


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

It's the Most Wonderful time of the Year


It's the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you "Be of good cheer"
It's the most wonderful time of the year
It's the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It's the hap- happiest season of all

There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year

There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It's the most wonderful time
It's the most wonderful time
It's the most wonderful time
It's the most wonderful time of the year

  1. I love that cute little rabbit in the high-chair!!

    And all the touches of red are looking so warm and welcoming.

    Yes, bling and ding are easily confused. :-)

Christmas is everywhere and I love it all but the Santa plates really make me smile. Is that a new backing in your hutch? Your red curtains look so pretty. Christmas is glowing all around you.
