Christmas with Rhoda

Come join the party at Rhoda's.

I'm keeping the pictures brief as I know there are a lot of homes to visit. This is my "Tree of Days Gone By." I decorated how one may have years ago before they could afford fancy decorations. This tree is quite large, I think the base spans about 5 feet. It's a Martha Stewart tree. I just love the way it looks but it is a job putting it together each year. Some times by the time I am done I wait until the next day to decorate it.

This year I chose white lights, berries, pine cones, burlap ribbons and garland. I usually try to decorate my tree a little different each year.

Outside the two small trees are decorated very simple. I got the baskets at Walmart and hot glued burlap around them with a ribbon.

Simplicity was my theme this year I think.

Two snowmen on top of the kitchen cabinets. Snowmen are my favorite. I like that I can keep them out for a while after Christmas.

Twin's boss gave me these plates and I put them up to make a snowman.

I got my black shelves up a few weeks ago but haven't found all the plates I want to put up yet.

Now, take a cookie, you may need it. There are so many Christmas blogs to visit, you may not have time for lunch! Twin and I wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

It all looks lovely. I really like the snowmen- especially since they can multi-task and be useful well after Christmas.
