::Christmas decorations::

Today, I'm linking up with Gussy and the Inspiration Workshop!
Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!

The past several years, our family has gotten a fraser fir.  I la-la-love those trees.  No prickly needles for me!  Apparently....we dumped all of our lights last year.  So Dad had to run to the store and get some new ones.  Among our new lights are small, round bulbs.  I love them!!  I was so excited to see a different strand of lights on the tree....a nice change.

My grandparents got my parents a new nativity set a few years ago.  The old, familiar one is tucked away in storage for either my brother or I to take one day.  It has too many memories attached to just give it away or discard it.

 I love this centerpiece from our local florist in town, Shady Lawn.  [I also happen to work a bit there each week....just a bit biased.]

A family that we minister to through our local church gave this sweet little figurine to my parents last week.  I know it will always hold special memories for us.

These big thangs came from my grandparents house down in Mobile.  Ah...I miss that place. And I don't think such perfect, large pinecones can be found up North.

On my way out the door to take a few outside pics....looking a little crummy.  :)

A wreath on our porch door.  We're a little wreath-happy around here.  This is one of many....also purchased at Shady Lawn.

We have a [small] barn.  It makes me feel like I live in the country.  The wreaths on the doors seal the deal.

What's your favorite Christmas decoration?

For me, I love the decorations that we pull out year after year.  I can't wait to have my own place, though, and pull out the things I have accumulated.  :)
