Through the end of December…. I am including/ encouraging 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 kitchen…. decorated for Christmas…. The theme in the kitchen is reindeers and the tree in the kitchen has reindeers, sleighs, bells, and antlers on it.

There is a reindeer as the centerpiece for the table…..


and a Santa, sleigh, and reindeer on the counter…..


a wreath with a gold reindeer hanging in the center…over the stove…..


a wooden reindeer on top of the baker’s rack…..


a Santa with a pair of reindeer on the second shelf…..


and a sleigh with reindeer on the bottom shelf


and the tree has many reindeer!!


I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

    thanks for hosting each week.

    Guess anyone who has looked at my blog can see we hardly got anything done for Christmas, so just sharing outdoor spring stuff.

    Planning on having Christmas with family this coming Sunday. Starting to feel better now, and that is the first we can all get together again. I am blessed to have family here in town..

    Happy New Year and blessings

  8. Happy New Year from our house to your house. Your home looks so cozy and inviting for the holidays. Quite by accident my laptop froze up and then I restarted the puter. Alas, by accident I posted twice. Could you please remove one of my Outdoor Wednesday Posts? Thanks!

  9. Hi Susan,
    This is my first visit here, you have a wonderful blog.
    Your kitchen decorations and color combination are lovely.
    Happy New Year!

  10. Susan, I love all your reindeer decorations. Your kitchen must look very festive. Thank you for hosting Outdoor Wednesday, it is a lot of fun.

    I wish you and yours all the best in 2010. Happy New Years.

  11. My post is up - thanks so much for the opportunity. Wish you a great Outdoor Wednesday and a fantastic new year! Gena

  12. Of all the Christmas themes, I don't think I've ever seen a reindeer one before -- how clever! And how cute! I love it!!!!

    Thank you for a year of Outdoor Wednesdays! Looking forward to the great outdoors in 2010!

  13. Lovely decorations for Christmas. I've shared a variety of indoor Christmas decorations at Happily Retired Gal, and outdoor ocean views from a recent walk at Sacred Ruminations ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,

  14. Long time no talk to Susan! Just wanted to say Happy New Year...and to say I can tell you love Christmas Deer. Those lil brown velvet ones are precious! I decided to share some outdoor pics today of the oldest Pecan tree in Ga that is here in my subdivision. I took a week off from work two weeks prior to Christmas and was just open to break and really do "life". One of those moments I took a walk to spend some time with Ms. Pecan. I was in heaven for the hour I spent with her. I pray your year was a great one...and your Christmas with your family and friends were blessed! May 2010 bring you much joy and bliss! Hugs! ~CC Catherine

  15. I really like the bronze color in your decorations. So rich and pretty. A very Happy New Year to you and yours Susan!!

  16. So glad you decided to do this today. Many of the blog carnivals have suspended for the holidays.
    I love all of your Reindeer. This time of year you see Moose all over the place. Sometimes I have a hard time telling the difference but it is in the antlers mostly.
    Thanks for hosting,
    Mama Bear

  33. Hi Susan! I have been away from blogging for a little bit but oh, how I have enjoyed catching up with your Christmas decorations! Your three (!) family Christmas trees in the dining room are such an inspiration - I love them! And that wood reindeer is gorgeous.
