Finally we've gotten the outdoor decorations up and finished filling out the interior.
Our traditional Christmas cow and her little trees, now joined on a blanket of snow by spiral trees.
We went with a more subdued Candy Cane garland wrap, three lighted wreaths and three big snowflakes. Frau Punkinstein figured it would be bright enough without adding more strings of lights.
And let's face it, it is.
Frau's industrious and crafty thinking provided this wreath with its decorative look. Brass balls still visible, thankfully.
Two interior views. On the top you will see our stockings. One for her, one for me, and a collective stocking for the furry kids (4 cats, 1 rat and 1 dog, so obviously it is the biggest). We don't have a mantle. We don't have a fireplace so a mantle would just be an extravagance. I wish we had a fireplace. And a mantle. And lived in a different neighborhood.
And lastly we have Gnomish Santa's Snowperson Posse. Look at that Santa and tell me there is not gnome blood in there. These are some really nice snowpeople pieces. They deserve a mantle.
Keep your Jul Log lit.
