Deck the Halls

I should start by saying that I don't have the eye or the talent of a photographer.  I can barely use our basic digital camera.  All of those buttons and symbols mean nothing to me.  I'm in awe of people that can do it well.  The pictures that I take are what I'll call utilitarian.  They're me saying, "Look at this, it kind of looks how it does in real life."  My grandmother would say that I'm an amatoor or that I'm immatoor, who knows. That being said, the following photos of our holiday decorations are an approximation of how cozy they look here at home. 

P.S. If you're in Memphis and want a great photographer, Annabella Brandon of Asian Bees photography is fabulous and did a lovely job for our wedding!

All of these decorations were donated by my Mom.  Thanks!

This tree skirt lasted until Max left a little yule log under the tree.

Hello Santa, are you kin to Charlie Daniels? (He has a tiny fiddle).

You have to look hard, but there are decorations in there.

Pretty Nativity set we received as a wedding gift.

Christmas China

The mantle in our bedroom.  Those Noel letters are from when my Dad was a kid.

  1. It looks so beautiful. I am so glad you have them all up--and glad I don't have to pack them up again! Lots of sweet memories, huh? Mom
