More ChriStmas DecoRatinG~ The DiNiNg RoOm..:)

Good thursday morning!! I seriously can't believe where the week has gone..and I feel like all I have done is decorate..but we know thats not true..I have kept up the house, cooked, cleaned and yesterday I went over to Britt's house and helped her decorate..I took over some more christmas decorations that I no longer wanted and helped her with a few things..I can't wait to see what she came up with on her Britt if you are reading this..we are waiting for another sneek peek at your christmas home.;)
the above photo is of the hutch at night..kind of blurry but you get the picture..Its the lights that make it go blurry..I've noticed if I let it focus before I snap the photo they come out note to

again no flash so you can see the lights..;)
this was taken this morning with no flash..

I have my silver chargers here but I have red ones too:) I love how they dress up the table.:)
I almost forgot my manger scene till I was surfing someone else's blog and I had that light bulb out it came..
the Santa in the center lights up.I got this last year at the christmas house (the one I always go to) and it is on a wooden stand with metal scallops around it..and it is a collage of different christmas on the photo to get a better look..I love it.;)

well that is it for me..I gotta go and tidy up the house and then get some sewing done and out the door in the mail.:) I almost forgot..I won Tammys giveaway on monday...3 christmas boxes..will show them when I receive them..;) tomorrow I am going to a gift show with Sarah and Britt and all the kids..this is going to be so much fun.I can't wait to see the magic through their eyes..there are 7 venues and I spy some of my friends doing it this year..This is the one I do every year usually..but decided to take a break..hoping etsy would have been doing better..cause I do really well at this will have to start up for next year I guess..I do so love doing the shows and seeing everyone oooh and ahh at your stuff..always makes me smile... Have a wonderful thursday..I can't wait to see the rest of your christmas decorating.;)
UPDATE: I just listed 13 ornaments on my etsy site..see side bar to take you there.;)

  10. Your home is looking so wonderfully festive...everywhere you look theres something to must absolutely love coming to your home at Christmas!

    I went to the Salvation Army Thrift Store today and found two small, wooden compartmentalized bins with handles, sort of like minature wooden tool carriers (like they used years and years ago. I was looking for something like what you decorated in your kitchen but these are perfect for my apartment. I'm going to decorate the oldest one to look Christmasy and keep the other one to put my art brushes in...I'll try to get before and after pictures up tomorrow or Saturday...keep on decorating Gina!!!
