Finished - Not Finished

Been working at this all week....

Finished.....stairs to our basement living area.

Finished....thought the Grands may get a kick out of ringing the bell :)

Not finished....needs more stuff to elevate the picture. Using the open suitcase is a first for me. 

Finished... Not a good pic! Should have tried it again, maybe with a flash :)

Finished, I think. I may add some greens when I get some.  

Same with this one...I think it needs some greens. 

NOT finished!! These pots are crying out to be filled with greens!! And for pete's sake, I do have a Holiday mat to replace this one. Oops, not on top of that detail :)

Finished. Let me show you a close up...

The red stars are on the end windows

This one is in the middle. I love the stars!

Finished...I think!

Finished.  We have always had a Moravian star. We found a perfect place for it at this house too :)

The kiddos love this :) it plays Away in a Manger when you press down on the Angel. 

Finished? We have a few outdoor lights. The wreath has some lights but I noticed that I need to change some batteries....they are a bit dim! Maybe I'll add some lights to the greens in the pots... When I get greens, sigh. It's on the 'to do list' :) 

Still working on the mantle and the staircase and the loft. It will be finished, soon I hope. 

Merry Christmas!

Oh Doris, it is all looking SO festive! I love the sled and skates! It makes me want to send the Husband looking for our olden sled:) The stars are precious and so is that little Manger! I would like to find one like that:) Enjoy your decorating! Feels good, doesn't it? Sending HUGS and Prayers your way!

How absolutely beautiful. Pretty pretties. I love the theme with the stars in each window. Wise men still follow a star, right? I'm crazy about vintage suitcases. I have a couple of red ones in my booth and I'm thinking about going and getting them. Your home is beautiful and perfect when filled with your happy family.
