Playing In The Dining Room

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend...can you believe it's the last weekend before Christmas day? Where has this month gone? I'm so far behind, but I'm trying really hard to catch up. Today I'm going to be wrapping gifts (just getting started) and cleaning house...it sure needs some TLC! I thought I would share with you today my formal tree in the dining room...I always love doing a little something different to her each year and so take a look at what I did this year. Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by for a visit...I always love hearing from all of y'all.
                                               Hope y'all come back...real soon,
                                                                       Linda
                                   Here she is and boy she sure does look different this year
                                 in her new room! New wall color...new floors...new drapes
                                                 and located in a new spot...I hope she
                                                     likes her new home...I sure do!
               Mary Claire wanted to know who that baby was in the frame...can't believe she
                    didn't know who it was...just kidding! This frame was my MIL"s and that
                               pic came with this pretty silver frame back in the 50"s. Looks
                                like I need to get busy and replace it with a FAMILY PIC!
                                     I used some new green ribbon...love this shade!
                   Only used these pretty candle lights on this tree...I think I really like the look!
              Drummer Boy ornament also from my MIL and a MARDI GRAS ornament...you know
                                                            we love our Mardi Gras!
                                 Looking around the room and playing with my new camera!



                                Looking forward to taking the class on how to use my new REBEL,
                                                       but for now, it's just fun playing!
                                                 
Come join me for some fun at these parties!

Hi Linda- Thanks for your nice comment! I love your tree and the white decor in the room, like the snowflakes and white feather tree. I'm behind too, we ordered almost everything on Amazon prime last Wed, and I'm going this morning to Tarjay for those last minute things!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
