  17. I remember the golden reindeer from last year and how pretty I thought they were. If I remember right they were a GREAT find. Happy decorating, Marty!! You do an amazing job and always inspire me.

  18. I love your Christmas decor! Seems like a lot of people are going the more simple route this year (myself included). My favorite part of your decor is the grandma and the mouse in your kitchen - too cute!

  19. I really enjoyed that tour of your Christmas home! I'm keeping it simple, as always, this year.

  20. Marty,
    Lovin' all your Christmas vignettes, dear friend!!!
    Like you, I'm keeping it simpler!!! (wink, wink!)
    Nearing the finish line here on the Prairie with the decor.
    This week is "Party~Time" with a busy social calendar.
    Hoping to get some baking done in the morning hours,
    but still enjoying last nights Bell & Choral Concert and looking
    ahead to singing in this years Cantata!!!

  21. Marty,
    Everything looks beautiful, I loved the kitchen vignette and the rocking horse was adorable, it looked like it was quilted, very cute. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Your home looks so festive and welcoming, Marty. Love all the gold touches. Have a wonderful week.

  23. Your Christmas decorations are gorgeous, very traditional and I love the manger scene. I had a similar gold reindeer I bought in Thailand but somehow on the move back to New Zealand a few years ago when I unpacked him he had lost an antler. They sort of screwed into his head. No idea how it happened, possibly the packers dropped it :(. Maybe I could fashion one out of some clay as I would love to have him out on display again.

    Lee :)

  24. I am in love with the mouse in the kitchen :) I saw the beautiful manger the other day, etc but how cute is that mouse by the cookies...brings a smile :)

  25. Your Christmas house is lovely, thank you for sharing!

  26. Marty, this is so beautiful. This was the Most Viewed Link from Give Me The Goods last week! You've been featured on Sunday Features and on my FB page today ;)
