This Santa is also hand carved from wood - I found him at a thrift store two years ago and paid $3 for him. The artists name is on the bottom of the stand - what a shame that no one valued him enough to treasure him the way I do!
I put a small tree on the coffee table in front of the couch and hung all the small santa ornies on that.
This is a rug hooked pillow cover that I pull out every year for the holidays.
We always take a walk down memory lane when we decorate the big tree. When my kids were little they'd receive hand made ornaments from their cousins and friends, plus make some at school. We've purchased Christmas ornaments while on vacation for the last 15 years so it's always fun to see them again and remember where we bought them.
Last Christmas DD#1 was in Arizona and brought me home a dozen of these leaded glass stars from Mexico and I just love them - they're new to the tree this year along with an ornament we bought in Alaska when we went on our cruise in July.
In the dining room I have my prim tree that's covered in ornies that I received from online swaps through the years - some amazingly creative women have made really special ones for me!
Downstairs in the family room is the tree decorated with white angels, birds and stars. We made the Moravian stars several years ago and they're holding up really well.

There are a couple trees that I didn't put up this year because the kitchen is still torn up. I have enough Nativity ornaments to decorate a whole tree that I love - and a tree full of gingerbread men that I love because it smells so good. OH! And I almost forgot about the little table top tree I put on the kitchen counter - it's got miniature toys surrounding it and a little train on a wooden track that encircles it - that's a fun one too! I think next year will be a banner year where I'll have the entire house decked out liked I used to do when the kids were small.
