Christmas Tour....Formal Living Room / Dining Room

Our formal living/ dining room is the first ro on your left as you come in the entry.

Here is a photo from the other end.   

I have some refreshments on the coffee table....come on in and have some!   Kyleigh and our daughter Melissa have been busy making cookies for school,  friends, and grandparents!    Ky and I took a little break to have a few .....

I put up a little different Christmas tree in the living room this year.   I put a party dress and lights on my dress form.      She has a big red hat waiting on the floor if she gets tired of wearing her princess Christmas hat.    You can barely see the pink net Christmas apron that she has have to look real close!  Her apron has a few jingle bells sewn on it,  I think  some of them have fallen off over the years.

I have a Nativity set on the mantle....I did a post on it earlier this season.   Mother's green cherry and cable glassware are displayed on the on either side of the fireplace.    I have a homemade book garland on the fireplace.....

easy to make...just thread torn book pages on burlap string.

H made his famous Sand Tarts yesterday...they are on the green hobnail pedestal in the lower right corner of the photo...
I cant tell you how yummy these are!

Merry Christmas!
