Christmas Tour

 I have seen a lot of tours of Bloggers home. Which I really enjoyed. So I thought I would share a little of mine. This is our mantel and new tree. Our old tree was given away.

 This is the snowman I painted years ago. It's one of my favorite piece.
One good thing about the military is you get to travel around the world. This nativity scene is hand carved from Bethlehem.
We almost got the tree to big. Our Angel is  close to the ceiling.
I bought my husband this one year, because his favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story. A leg lamp ,just like a man. LOL
Don't you just love the little bears guarding the snowmen.

 On to the dining room. This is a antique china cabinet we got from Germany. My Amberina collection works well with my Christmas dishes.
 The four little Christmas kittens have followed me around the world.
My green tree I made years ago got broken, I was lucky to find this one in a antique store.
Welcome to my Kitchen. My husband put this shelf up for me last month. It sure came in handy this Christmas.
I love this tree. My dear friend Ruthann gave it to me. It use to be her mothers. The green are little birds.I still have to glue the bulbs and the birds in so I don't lose them.
The true reason for the Season.  The best gift we could ever receive.
 Merry Christmas everyone.
