Starting last week…. and going through the end of December…. I am going to include/encourage everyone to share their outdoor AND indoor Christmas decorations for Outdoor Wednesdays.

Greenery in the form of trees, wreaths and garland are from outside…… and they are inside for the holidays… yes, I am stretching the definition of Outdoor Wednesday…. but I can!!!

Other Outdoor photos are welcome (as usual).


Today I am showing the living room decorated for Christmas! Last week, we selected a live tree… and here is the live tree in the stand…and with lights….


and decorated (on the right) in living room! On the left is the Santa tree which is close to the front door…


near the entry…

  17. Love your trees -- especially the Santa one -- was thinking about getting another tree and just putting the Santa ornaments on it-- they outnumber any other kind of ornament it seems!

    Beautiful decorations throughout!

  18. Hi Susan,
    Christi already said what I was thinking "It looks like a Christmas Wonderland".
    I love the idea of a tree just for Santa's, everything looks magical.
    Thanks for hosting our gathering again today.

  19. I love all the Santas! [In fact, I have several of what you have...even the pillow with Santa's face]...I collect Santas.

    My Wednesday post this week, is "Sleigh bells ring---snow is glistening". Come by and view my snow village if you can find time.

  20. Such pretty decorations. It will be such fun to see how everyone has decorated for the season. I did not do a Christmas post this week. I will have to get photographing for a Christmas post next week.

  21. Beautiful festive decors.

  26. That was not one decoration, not two or three either...that was a lot. Very nice, merry christmas to you.

  27. Okay, just how many Santas do you have? I love Santas, but my collection pales in comparison. Have you thought about opening a Santa Museum and opening it to tourists? I've be first in line!

    Everything is so festive and pretty!
