Come on in. Tomorrow family and longtime friends will enter these doors.
Yes that is Maggie asleep on her bed near the red trunk. I got a bargain at the store on the poinsettia. That is an white tail antler we found while out on the farm.

Looking right from the front door, you will see my one of the two Christmas paintings that I display .

When you enter the door you are greeted with a painting I did from the first Christmas card Dad sent me after Mother died. Puppy made the star in Art Class in High School. I had to add a turkey feather or two to the Christmas arrangement.

This is a Cross Sticth picture I did many years ago when Puppy was small. My eyes prevent me from doing such close work now.

The Madonna is the center of the dining room table.

The Santa Tea Pot is the only other decoration in the dining room on the sideboard.

The living room end table has some Christmas candles including a snow man and a wooden Santa.

Behind the couch, more candles and a winter Santa with a golden reindeer.

The arrangement on the coffee table.

Three little Snow Men are in front of the windows on the right side of the fireplace.

The decorations on the mantle. The gold birds were one of Mimi's wedding presents.

The fireplace is graced by some stuffed animals. Sam Cat looks forward to this time of year as he likes to steal them at night and take them into Mimi's room. Last year he preferred the green doll box but this year he likes the Scooby beanie baby.

This is the only decoration on the left side of the fireplace. As I said, I did not have it in me to decorate like I usually do. It is fun to try to find the right place for the right decoration.
The salads have been made and the cake baked. Candy is boxed and the shopping done so now it is time to have a little fun.
The Kitty Justice is for you to enjoy this wonderful season and never forget the true meaning of Christmas.
Peace to Y'all and to Y'all a Good Night.

You have many beautiful decorations and some with wonderful history. It is best to put out only so many and not overdo. I have been snowed in for a week and don't even have a Christmas tree. we will see what happens. MB
