Now that we've covered the entry--we'll move on to the back wall of the living room. It's the entertainment center. It used to have a TV in it in the old house--but not in this one. But it's fun to decorate year after year!
I have different collections on the shelves. Whether it be Santa, Snowmen, Reindeer & Tin Soldiers, to Angel Teddy Bears--the bottom shelf is where we hang the stockings. Mostly because they fit there just fine. But in the last house we didn't have a mantle to hang them by--and this year we do, but it's in the family room--far far away from the Christmas tree. So this little tradition stuck around! Up top is garland--and some more of my Santas and Christmas trees.
