Starting around Thanksgiving…. 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).


Time to share some Christmas decorations! Today I will share the living room decorations…

The boxes… oh my…. my kids brought ALL the boxes down… but then I had to empty them and decorate each room!


and the after…. of the living room….

Living room


A closer look at the living room… from the front door….

  22. Every thing looks so lovely. I love the blue vase with the festive flowers in it.

  23. My goodness you own so many Christmas decorations. It must have taken you hours to decorate your home. :)

  24. Wow, you really have a Christmas Wonderland there! What a lot of work - but it looks lovely. We haven't started decorating for the holidays yet - I'm running a little slow this year for some reason. Think I tried to hold onto summertime a little too long!

  25. I now saw that my link in the list of participants goes to wrong post, it should be http://utomhusliv.blogspot.com/2010/12/naturlig-jul.html (like in my comment here). Sorry! Is it possible to change it?

    My blog name Utomhusliv means Outdoor living, so Outdoor Wednesday is a perfect place to participate :)

  26. Oh, my! Your house is gorgeous! Guess I'll have to do mine this coming weekend!

  27. Wow what a festive transformation. Everything looks just gorgeous. It makes me want my old house back with a fireplace or find a way to put one in at this house :)

    Have a great day.

  28. Wow! You've done a beautiful job! I wish I had my boxes down and you were over for a visit...it looks like you do 'fast' work;0)
    Thanks for sharing and hosting.

  29. I was wondering, as I did my post, if you would be doing inside decorations this year as in years past..I'm glad you do that...You have a lot of boxes..I am trying to figure a way to have more convenient packaging because I keep all of my decorations in one closet and am forever dragging all of them out to get to the holiday I need at the moment.
    I love the theme trees you do...how many trees total do you put up and do you have any help.
