What are you doing to decorate for the holidays?

Emma'a little Christmas cottage!








Well, it is that time of the year once again when i get my husband to drag out all the Christmas decorations and we start sprucing up the place for the holidays. I do have to say my husband gets into this much more than i do though, dont get me wrong i like it but he LOVES it... Some of you may remember that this summer he built a playhouse for our grandaughter and he wanted to have it all decorated up for Christmas as a surprise for her. This isnt a fancy playhouse as it is built from salvaged wood an old window and other bits and pieces salvaged from here and there; But i can tell you fancy or not this little house was built with lots and lots of love from one Poppa's heart. Anyway i made a wreath for the door out of things i had stored in the attic so nothing new there. HE put up some old greenery we has and strung a few lights and even put a little tree in the window with PINK lights. He is one great Poppa! You should have seen her little face when she saw it all lit up.. Again , nothing fancy here but she thought it was magic. Here is a picture of Emma's little old fashioned Christmas cottage . Merry Christmas to you and i hope the season sends blessing and many precious memories your way.
