Foyer dressed for Christmas..

Hi all!  If you are like me you have been busy dressing your home for Christmas - so much fun, so much work...but so worth it!  I have to say I am so blessed to have such a loving husband and son, they have done 95% of the decorations this year. I am still  in recovery from my second surgery a month ago, and these wonderful guys stepped  up to bat, took over and have made our home so festive. Any whoo...I thought I would share the foyer table today since I want to save  most of the rest of our home for all the up coming parties - see how dark it is in the family room?  No peaking!!  I can't wait to see how each of you has decorated your home for this so special season.

When you come in the front door the first thing that draws the eye is this so happy Santa with presents in hand.  I love his white boots,  gold and white jacket and gold pants.  Look at his gorgeous blue eyes - you just know he wants to grant your Christmas Wish!

Behind Santa is the foyer table that holds some festive Christmas decor.  The tree is at least 10 years old and came from Bombay.  It  has  a pineapple topper with crystal star on top, red and green glittery leaves, berries, pine cones all show cased in a  gold pot.

Did you notice the Rusty Angel Girl next to the tree?  She is new this year, and she has a friend in another room.  I love the look on her face, so serious but believes what she is praying for will happen - true faith.

Angel Girl is also next to a very pretty crystal vase filled we yummy smelling pine cones with glittery stars and balls....

and a JOY snow globe with a Frenchy looking clock... 

On the bottom shelf is some faux gifts and a Snowman on a sled... which ties in with another area, that I will show you later...

Next is a sneak peak at my Christmas present...I have been looking for a table to fill a empty corner of the family room....well I finally found one that would work and  told the Mister about it...and now it awaits the  Christmas Tree's corner to take up residence.  Now, for the give away...if you like the Angel Wings candle,  become a follower, or let me know you are and I will randomly pick a winner.  This is for the wings only - they stick in any wax candle. I will draw announce the winner this Friday by 4 est.


I will be joining these so fun parties:

What a nice santa you have. I think he would be most welcoming to see. I'm sure your company will think so. Merry Christmas
