Merry Miscellaneous Christmas Decor!

A Cozy Country Christmas
I feel a bit out of the blogging loop.  My blog book entries for December will be very few, I am afraid.  I know I am not the only blogger to be sidelined by that Christmas Grinch the "Christmas Flu."  It sure does a number on a person's holiday spirit.  With less than a week to go I am so glad that I was a bit of an "overachiever" in the shopping and decorating department.  I have no more gifts that need to be purchased or mailed...YAY!  I still haven't taken a lot of photos of my rooms, but I do have a few to share.  My porch, front hall and main family room are pretty rustic this year...Cozy Country Christmas.
 
Family Room Mantel...
 
Cozy Cabin...

Sweet Deer...

Hungry Little Mice...

Ornament I made from Graphics Fairy tutorial.

Family Room Tree...
Burlap, Felt Snowflakes, and Woodland Creatures.

Hallway Village...Vintage Style Houses.

Smaller Hallway Tree...
Sits on an old German sled.
 
George's Grandmother's Nativity.
The pieces are quite large!
For the garland I found some lovely Nativity Christmas cards from other lands

I kept the cards simple.

I made paper chains for the garlands over the doors.
They are from the pages of an old dictionary I have been crafting with for years.
 
I hope you have enjoyed this brief peek.  I left a couple of rooms undecorated this year...and the sky didn't fall!  Imagine that!
 
Merry Christmas!

Hi Shirley! I love your theme of a cozy woodland x-mas! It reminds me of Minnesota. I also love how you have so many handmade touches in each little display!
Happy Holidays to you my friend!

ALL of your decorations are so charming, and I especially like that runner on your mantle with the deer on it. And I'm crazy about that little fence around your tree!!!

I don't think there's any hope for those of us suffering from BMA(Blow Mold Addiction). In fact, I just bought two Halloween ones today!
Merry Christmas!
