Holiday Decorating Time

So it's my absolute most favorite time of the year not only because December is the same month for both my birthday and my Mom's birthday but it's also Christmas! I love decorating for the holidays ever since I worked for a big florist/greenhouse back in the Hamptons on Long Island - I have never lost that talent and nor have I gotten rid of much of the decorations I have collected over the last 20 plus years - the attic is busting at the seems with boxes and boxes of decorations I could probably decorate the whole neighborhood and still have some things left over. I guess I'm saving them all for that one day we buy a much larger house with many rooms and high ceilings. I can dream! Well - I did a little decorating this year even though we just got back from spending Thanksgiving in Tunica, MS with a little casino action and a very disappointing eating experience at the new Paula Deen buffet at Harrah's casino, and then we are leaving on December 23rd for a week and half to New Mexico to visit my mom and stepdad and I get to play with her new long arm she bought over the summer! Enjoy the decorations folks!

Since we don't have a fireplace, I decorate the tv cabinet in the living room like a large mantel - I went a little overboard on the pinecones and large green balls.

I dug out the bigger tree this year - I have a red/green theme going.

The mirror next to the tv cabinet - it needed something.

This is our entry way in the dining room - I love my big sugar pine cones - wish I could find more of these but not in New Orleans.
