Decorated for Christmas: Stairway and Hallway

Last year the nutcracker ornaments were on the two trees in the dining room. This year they are found in the stairway and hallway! At the bottom of the stairs 2 nutcrackers flank the stairs…..

As you walk up the steps, you will see nutcrackers of all shapes and sizes, along with different drums….



I wired a nutcracker to each bow…….

At the top of the steps is my gingerbread wall tree. I had a handful of gingerbread ornaments that I didn’t know what to do with….. until I saw the small wall tree at Michaels!

Looking down the hall are more nutcrackers…..

Who says ornaments are just for trees? Not me!
