I am continuing my decorating and today worked on my dining room.  It's not finished yet but I did get the top of the hutch decorated.  
I use more of the dark red burgundies here
I hang my stockings here...maybe next year we will have the fireplace fixed and a mantel I can decorate
I Believe!

Plates on one side of the hutch...these change as I find new one's to add to the mix

This is one of my oldest Christmas decorations
I had it when I was a girl...I think it came off a candy box?  Not sure but I love it!
More red on the tree
Love this Santa Rubber Duckie! 

Before we go a look at Tiger with his first Christmas tree!
I love his wonder at the lights!

I'm joining Rednesday at 
It's A Very Cherry World
Go on over and share your reds!

You do not need any more decorations. To me everything is beautiful as is.

Happy REDnesday,

And I love little Tiger too Linda.
You are over the top in decorating. Your home looks great as is.
I'm trying to make out what is inside that nice big jar over your hutch? Candy?

Ames said...

I love coming over here to see what you come up with everyday! I wonder what is going through little Tiger's mind when he see things such as the Christmas lights? Our Lily is scooting backwards now. She is facinated with everything. I have a feeling she will be crawling soon! ~Ames

Seeing Christmas through the eyes of a child is wonderful! Little one is so enticed. Your decor is coming right along. Love the plates and plate holder. For years I had to hand stockings somewhere other than a fireplace. It is fun when you finally get one. Happy Holidays!

Kathleen said...

What a great shot of Tiger, so cute! I love your decor, and I have that same doggie ornament. It came from a box of Whitman Samplers dh gave to me before we were married! It is old!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Tiger is sooo sweet checking out the lights!!! I love your old puppy in a stocking ornaments. Memories are made of such things and that picture of Tiger will be a classic!

I love the red stocking!


Sing a song of scarlet—
Red on Christmas morn!
Sing a song of scarlet—
Blue is so forlorn!
Sing a song of scarlet—
Red for girls and boys!
Sing a song of scarlet—
Look at all those toys!
