Finishing up the Christmaing in the Living Room

 Hello, Dear Ones. Today I'd like to share with you the rest of my living room. I'm a little behind so I'll continue daily until I've shown you my decorating. Hope you don't get bored.
 I've told you about the 'almost open concept' of this space except we have a half wall between the kitchen and the living room. I like that and I have three more ledges to poke stuff on! So we'll start with the half wall.
 This is the center ledge - large lantern all Christmased up and then Nativities.
 This Nativity is very large and I've had it a very long time. If you visit me each year you've seen it all over the place.
Here are my little boxes Nativities. The top ones are Limoges-like and the bottom ones are just sweet.
 On the two outside ledges I've poked down these white lanterns with Milk Glass and some balls.
 On the coffee table I'm using this Nativity, beads and candles. I believe I do this arrangement more years than not.
 Then on to the end tables - a tropical Nativity and then I just poked some red berries in an existing floral.
 Little angel sitting with some Christmas balls poked in a cut glass bowl.

I poked some Christmasy picks into an existing floral. I'm so talented like that! :) The feature here is the pretty tablecloth I bought in Vienna a few years back.
 Now on to the piano.

 My floral just stays here. I made it so many years ago and it just stays sitting on my piano along with my grandmothers little lacey tablecloth. You can't see it but I have some little twinkly lights around the floral that is on a timer and comes on at dark. Large music notes balls just for my piano and an angel. I made the angel from a kit many years ago - the ceramic head, arms and the plastic cone were included and then I made the clothes.
 Fa la la la la la la la la...
Y'all come on an gather round the piano and I'll play and we will all sing Christmas songs!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Merry Christmas, Darling

 
Greeting cards have all been sent
The Christmas rush is through
But I still have one wish to make
A special one for you

Merry Christmas, darling
We're apart, that's true
But I can dream
And in my dreams
I'm Christmasing with you
Holidays are joyful
There's always something new
But every day's a holiday
When I'm near to you
The lights on my tree
I wish you could see
I wish it every day
The logs on the fire
Fill me with desire
To see you and to say
That I wish you Merry Christmas
Happy New Year too
I've just one wish
On this Christmas Eve
I wish I were with you
I wish I were with you
Merry Christmas, darling
