Show & Tell Friday: The Finishing Touches for Christmas

Welcome friends .....I'm so happy you stopped in to take a look at my blog....
please pop on over to Cindy's My Romantic Home and see  what the other participants have in store for you.
I finished all my decorations last weekend and wanted to give you all a peek.


Mr. AVO picked up some  free cut branches from Home Depot and I decided to make something for our front door.


 
 More of the free cut greenery and sugared rusty bells and sugared pomegranates.

 



 
  A close up of some large red vintage-looking mercury glass ornaments.....found at Tuesday Morning.









More free greenery on the mantel.

 


Our stockings are hung by the chimney with care.

 


My primitive fabric snowman really is NOT on fire....hehe

I hope you enjoyed your visit, have an enjoyable weekend.
 Your lovely comments are dear to my heart.

I love the two little stockings. There's something so simple and homey about them and they seem to say, "I'm content." Stockings can be so huge these days. These little ones are less greedy. :) Everything's gorgeous.
