2012 Christmas tour at our home

Here is our tree in the great-room for 2012.........

There is not much change from last year. It is nature inspired, and consist mostly of birds, berries, feathers,  and lots of grape vine.

Oh yes, and burlap! I just had to have burlap.





The mantle has already been shown, but you can go HERE if you missed it.

The outside wreath's have also been posted, but you can see more of them HERE if you would like.

And last but not least..........

Sophie says Merry Christmas! And yes, if your wondering, this is the REAL Santa! He is at the Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge every year. This is not her first pic with him.  Last time, she gave him the biggest, sloppiest doggy sugar right in the mouth, and he just took it with a smile. He is the best! Do you see how big his chair is?? And doesn't he have the most beautiful decorations?? I think Mrs. Claus sent them from the North Pole especially for all of the pictures. .

My Beagle just devoured all the hidden Santa treats she found hidden away. She was a very sick pup. If she had gone to see Santa, he would have given her a good "talkin -to!"

Beautiful blog!
