Christmas in My Living Room

Here are the Christmas decorations I have in my living room. I apologize for the poor quality of some of the pictures. There are dark areas in here and it's hard to get good pics. My husband has always wanted to have colored lights and I always do white lights. Well, this year I put colored lights in here and love them! I brought my polka dot T canvas I made a while back in from the outside and hung it on an old window on the mantle. I put my tree in the same fabric covered box from last year. I put a chair beside the tree with a few presents in a basket. I don't usually wrap my gifts until right before Christmas. The stockings on the shutter and the one on the chair are ones I made by just hot gluing fabric and ribbon on $1 felt cheapies from Walmart. Hope y'all are having a great week and getting all your shopping done. Hopefully I'll get mine done before Sat. so I don't have to go out much next week. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

This looks great, Angie! I love how you dressed up the stockings and the chair by the tree is a nice touch. Love your framed JOY letters, too.

I LOVE it! What a great idea for stockings, too :) I don't wrap gifts early, either - the suspense is just too much for my little boys!

I want to move in! I love everything-the letter above the fireplace, all the little touches...Please make room for five more, because our whole family would love to live in that cute place!!! ;)

Everything looks absolutely adorable in the living room, as it does, of course, every where else! I love the pop of accent color on the fireplace! I might have to try that, myself. I'm inspired!

I love, LOVE your home! It's just my style and oh, my, all the lovely touches of RED and all decorated for Christmas. I like all the rooms and just re-looked (is that a word?) at each of your posts again - drooling the whole time. I have a Santa plate like yours displayed in my livingroom. Thanks for sharing.
