Deck The Home With Lots Of Jolly

I love Christmas,
so I have already decorated
a bit around my house.

I collect snow globes.
Jess gave me the one on the right.

This candle smells so good.

I've always loved red plaid.
Found this cup at Hobby Lobby,
and it was half off.

I'm starting to collect these
frosty people.
I hope to have a small village
of them someday.

A little silver and white
here and there.

This nutcracker matches
my blue couches.

My whimsical corner.

I like this snow-covered rose
because it doesn't ever
snow here, and I often wonder,
Will I ever have a white Christmas?

I always put Santa's hat on
 humble girl. 
The world has much pride,
and she reminds me
to try and stay humble.

As you can see,
my Christmas décor is
a little bit of everything.  And I
think that's what
decorating is all about -
putting out the things we love.

Wishing you a warm and cozy weekend.

Sheri, I love the things you have decorated with thru your home. The snow globes. ...I have to tell you a story of my mother's snow globe. My dad got mommy one when I was around 6 yrs. old (you know the stone age?) It was a lone red rose. I think one of my parents broke it in one of their many "knock down, drag out" fights. I loved that globe, for it's the only frivolous thing I remember her owning way back then. I wonder if that is what drew me to your blog, the title "red rose alley" :):) What ever it was, I am very glad we are friends thru blogging. Now when I see your sweet new cup for Christmas drinks, especially with chocolates near by...I know we are soul sisters. Love you girl, Blessings for a beautiful weekend, xoxo, Susie

Your Christmas decorations are so pretty! I love those snow globes! I was looking for a blue themed nutcracker, but I haven't been able to find any! My birthday is actually on Christmas and I can't wait to get started on decorating! Have a wonderful weekend Sheri!

Good Morning! What fun for you to share your Christmas decor with us. The snow globes are very special. I also love the plaid mug. This is the time of year when warm apple cider or hot cocoa taste especially good. I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving week...I'm on a short break. God bless, Mildred

I love Christmas too and it's so nice to see some of your decorations. Those snow globes really caught my eye - I'm a big fan of them and I can see how pretty they must be when shaken.
Love the mug too - just this morning I have a bought a table cloth and matching napkins in that red plaid.

All your Christmas décor is lovely and whimsical! Especially love your nativity snow-globe... the true meaning of Christmas!!!

The white lantern is so pretty and each touch is very creative!

Our Nativity is displayed and our Christmas tree is up and decorated! Love watching all the Christmas movies by the glow of the Christmas tree throughout the entire season!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! God's Blessings!!! Net :)

Red was my favorite color when I was young; then I made way for other colors. And now in my 'mature" years I came back to red. A full circle. I like the red rose, the red mug, the red hat..and everything else red. I even ordered recently a red tricycle to combine sports(pedalling) with travel.

I think it is smart to start decorating early Sheri, especially love your frosty people. I wish for a white Christmas too... that will NEVER happen here... We can dream. Have a lovely Fall weekend Sheri

A lovely post Sheri, so nice to see your decorations.
One of our grand-daughters loves snow globes ... maybe she will have a collection as she gets older, we shall see. I do like your snow globes, I can never resist shaking them.

Our shops have many lovely Christmas items, and I'm sure I will be tempted to buy a few new ones to mix in with some family favourites.

I do agree with you, house or home decorating is all about putting out the things we love and treasure.

Sending good wishes for the weekend

All the best Jan

It's so nice to see your lovely Christmas decorations, Sheri. I love the angel wings on your hutch. So pretty! And your last little girl with the Santa hat is so sweet. Yes, dear Sheri, now more than ever we must remain humble. Such a sweet thought from a sweetie. ♥

NanaDiana said...

I agree, Sheri. Christmas is about putting out the things you love and saving them from year to year. I have some things that I can't bear to part with-that I hope someday my children won't be able to part with either.
Love all your sweet bits and pieces. Wish I could send YOU some of the SNOW we get HERE! lol xo Diana

I feel the same, there is something very special that the spirit of Christmas brings and so often it's undefinable.

I like looking at your collections. They warm my spirit.:)

Happy weekend!

Jeno J said...

Your collections looks great, very creative.

Karen said...

I enjoyed seeing your Christmas treasures. My favorites are the frosty people figurines. I adore snowmen figures. I already have two small trees decorated.

Patricia said...

You have many interesting and pretty Christmas decorations, Sheri. The silver is beautiful, but I am most impressed that you have found pretty red rose ornaments with snow and Christmas elements. Gorgeous!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Hello sweetness! I started my decorating on Wednesday night, but with only one item. This weekend is the time I will bring out what I have and enjoy it. We had a our first snow yesterday, and that's enough decorating for me on the outside. Oh the joy of the season! Wishing you peace and love and friendship, always.

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Sheri I agree and your house reflects a happiness and coziness of heart and home. I have not started to bring up Christmas items. But will starting the day before Thanksgiving. My holiday decorations will reflect more a winter theme for me.

Beautiful Decoration! I also love the Snow Globes :)

Happy Weekend Sheri <3

Hi Sheri,
I agree, decorate with the items you love ... that is what makes a home feel so much like a home sweet home.
I like the snow globe with with red cardinals.
I am a huge fan of nutcrackers too. I have a beautiful collection of them. My boys love to help me put them out each Christmas.
xx oo

I love your style Sheri. I've always been drawn to red plaid too...or any plaid for that matter.

Holiday items don't always have to go perfectly together. If we love them, that's perfection in my book.

Okay I'm playing catch up here. I love your new header and living with passion is definitely a must. Sorry to hear about the circumstances on how you came across your new home money,but thankful it came to you in divine timing. I enjoyed all your Christmas decor, country, and rose photos. Hope this upcoming week is splendid.

Dear Sheri,
Your home is so full of Christmas joy and spirit.. I love the way you have decorated. I love your humble girl, and she looks so sweet in her Santa hat.

Thank you for coming over to visit and such kind words.
In answer to your question, I prefer to keep my originals, but if you are interested I would be happy to offer an 8x10 print, but would need to be after Thanksgiving so I can go have it printed out. I hope to be well by then, I have not been real mobile this past week.
Wishing you and family a beautiful Thanksgiving,
Love and blessings,

Jeanie said...

Completely enchanting, Sheri. I love your humble girl with the hat. It's all beautiful and you have some wonderful finds. I am eagerly anticipating the day after Thanksgiving when I begin to power decorate! I'm trying to get ready by bringing up some things and stashing them in the guest room for easy access -- and getting the holiday out of town gifts wrapped so I don't have to wait in line after Thanksgiving. But I truly cannot believe that it is that time yet. Ah, fa la la!


Thank you so much for your sweet comment dear friend.
I am pinning this loveliness too. Very elegant, indeed.
I did receive your mail, I'm sorry I didn't answer... thought I did !
I prayed immediately and will with my ten-twelve friends next Wednesday. I put you in my check list. Don't worry, God listens every time !!
Have a lovely Thanksgiving.

Will be joining you with the decorating soon. I gave away almost all my Christmas decor when we moved in January, except for collected ornaments with sentimental value.
The star here is my favorite.
Love and blessings, friend.
