Deck the Mini Halls

I took advantage of our beautiful weather to get my outdoor decorating done.  
The little house is ready for Christmas.

On the outside I have the same greens and wreath I've had for a few years.  They are all getting a little tired so perhaps I will get some new next year.

We talk about actually getting a different house next year, Bob will be retired and I think that would be a great project for him:-)

I love the look of this one though, and we don't have a very big area to expand.  The main problem with this one is the ceiling is too low.  So maybe we would sacrifice the porch and raise the roof.
I do have a lot of projects for him though so we will see where this one lands on the list:-)

The porch is cute, but wasted space.

I do love the heart window and this year I added some battery candles to the chandelier.  

Inside, it remains the same.
My vintage trays and the little tree snow globes I made last year adorn the shelf.
The tree and baking things fill the table.

My grandma's vintage mistletoe and elf hang from the ceiling.

This cute countdown is from the $ bin at Target.
This is the perfect spot for it.

That little peppermint light string that is so cutely hung with masking tape still lights up and plays music after 3 years.  I don't even take the batteries out ~ I can't believe it's not corroded.

How fun to introduce Claire to the playhouse!
It is just her size.

1 tub emptied, 19 to go.

I'm joining Richella for her Grace at Home Party,
and Maria Elena for her Tuesdays at Our Home Party.

The playhouse is always a hit. Wish we would have spent more time out there on our visit. It is cute for Christmas.

Sue, this is adorable! What lucky grandchildren to have this wonderful space to enjoy for the holidays! So cute!

Oh my goodness, I have missed so much here!! I didn't realize that I had been THAT horrible of a blog reading, but I have. My life has taken a topsy turn this past month with the very sudden cancer diagnosis and passing of a friend within three weeks.

I love all the posts, from the Halloween one all the way to this one. It's going to be so fun to have another little girl around the house this year to balance the scales. I can only imagine how much she loves the little house all Christmasy.

Absolutely one of the most precious things I have ever seen. I want to move right in!

This is the cutest darn thing I've seen in a long time. I'll bet your little granddaughter loves to play in there.

Sue, I smile & drool with envy over this little playhouse! You've decorated it beautifully & I know your grands will cherish the wonderful memories you are making for them.
I SILL remember playing in the one our neighbors had down the street & that was well over 50 years ago!
Such FUN!!
