Have yourself a merry little Christmas

After a busy week, I'm back to share more of my holiday decorations. I previously shared my Pinterest-inspired ones, and here are the ones in the living room and outside on the porch...

We added a Dylan-made wreath to the mirror with ribbon, and a few of our favorite Christmas classics (Frosty and the Grinch with Max) to the bench. On top of the shoe organizer sits a little holiday vignette:

Gold and red ornaments round out the previously pumpkin-filled vase, and poinsettias replace my fall mums. The little nutcracker is from CVS, and one of my holiday-scented Mason jar candles adds warm candlelight at night.

These are our beautiful hand-knit stockings, made by my mom. She made Dylan's extra-large so Santa would spoil him!

On top of the TV armoire sits another one of my candles, surrounded by a wreath. The Santa rustic wood piece was a new purchase this year, Justin saw it in Cost Plus World Market and we both loved it.

On the bookshelves, we have our Dylan-made Christmas town.

And a garland that matches our Christmas tree. The large ornament was a gift from Santa last year, filled with candy. The Peace sign comes from World Market as well.

Out on the porch, Santa left us his sack one year. We also added a glittery white reindeer that lights up at night.

And finally (for today, forgive the picture-heavy posts!) are our Christmas lights attached to the railing.

Although you can't see them, there are jingle bells attached to the ribbons that make a lovely sound whenever the wind blows.

We are excitedly awaiting Santa's (and Nana's!) arrival. Off to cook and clean some more in preparation...
