Christmas at Casa Kenju

In my dining room. After I took this photo, I added an angel and a creche set to the base of the trees. You can see a bit of me in the mirror I hope you can enlarge them and see details.

Our "pencil tree"; the space saver. It has too many ornaments on it, but I can never decide when to quit.

The mantel. Santas above and below!

The hearth. No fires here - it was 60* yesterday!

The foyer. You can't see the miniature brass musical instruments nestled in the garland.

A few of my favorite ornaments.....Frogs and dogs!

The fairy frog

The properly dressed piggie

My oldest Santa, from the mid- 50's.

A very fancy reindeer; dressed in corduroy pants.

Sparkelina the fairy godmother.

The beaded tree and the painted swan. The white ball ornament up on the left has a gilded creche scene and was "made" by one of my kids in kindergarden.

Two frogs hugging!

This is what I do on the table when I don't want to go to any trouble. On Christmas Eve, it will be set for dinner, with small poinsettias.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to one and all!
and thanks to each of you who came yesterday to wish me the same!

I think the pencil tree is a fabulous idea - never heard of it before - and no, there are not too many ornaments. It's beautiful.

Merry Christmas kenju.

I love Casa Kenju all decorated for Christmas. It sounds like you and yours had a wonderful Christmas and I'll definitely rent the movie you recommended. I didn't read the book or see the movie.

And now we prepare to usher in the new year. Sixty degrees, huh? Warmer than sunny So Cal. We did have a fire today.
