Cottage Colors Holiday Blog Party with Red and Green

Welcome to the Cottage Colors Blog Party with a bit of Red and Green! This is a 3 foot Santa tree by my front door that is decorated in just Santa's and Father Christmas's, and I have been  I collecting for  along time. A short post since I have been sick and still am but trying to stay distracted so here I am off my couch for a few minutes to do a post as this is about all I'm up for at this point. I have added my Kitchen tree with all my Vintage Christmas cookie cutters even though it is on a previous post. So here is wishing you all the Joys of Christmas and the best for a very Happy Holiday.

Merry Christmas "REDnesday"

Merry Rednesday for all the folks that love the color  Red and especially during Christmas. This is the corner of my bar that separates the kitchen from the living/dining room area. My Santa the "Chef"with his busy elves and the Nutcracker chef apprentice that wants to help. The tree is decorated with vintage red plastic cookie cutters from the 1940's and 50's and candy canes, now what I would like to eventually do is add a small collection of Gingerbread men to mix in as I don't have many on the other side of the tree and that way I could spread them out. Today I'm joining Sue over at  It's A Very Cherry World for a bit of festive Red and Free Pretty Things For You. Hope this tickles your festive spirit, don't forget to visit all the other bloggers with more fun  to share.

"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas"

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around my house! Many things I have had for years and some I added as the years went by, including ornaments Santa's and such. I decorate in traditional colors, warm earth tones, rich reds, greens and what ever strikes my fancy. The first pic is  my mantle and the second is the mantle and hearth as you can see. Some of the older stockings are "Mia" so they are somewhere, buried I'm sure in the garage that always needs to be re-arranged! This week I'm joining some of the Holiday Blog Parties and today is "Show Your Mantle" over with Pamela at  From My Front Porch To Yours ! Thanks Pamela for being such a lovely host, don't forget to visit all the other party participants and have fun taking a peek at  all the wonderful decorations!

Tutu Cute Pinks for Pink Saturday!

 Happy Pink Saturday with my Tutu Cuties! I just just returned from the groomer with new haircuts  on the girls and they found they had a new bed! Yep, Santa came early to my little girls Roxy and Ruby with a very colorful bed.  They were feeling very sleepy I'm afraid so the the photo shoot was a quick one as I didn't want to put them through too much.  I found Pink Doggie Tutu's in the  $ 1  isle of Target and in Pink, I just couldn't resist!  Myself "The Elf" has been busy this week decorating for the holidays a bit at a time as not to overdue it  (bad shoulder) and I wanted to share some "Pink" for a change that was fun. Later this week, I'll share a few photos of the decorations. I have plenty and it was fun to get started. Don't forget to visit all the other gals showing off their pink with Beverly at  How Sweet the Sound and have fun preparing for the Holidays! Don't forget the "Reason for the Season" as my next post will be my Nativity, I have had it since I was 20 years old and the first decoration to go up! Until then, Enjoy...
