Christmas Decor in My Desert Cottage...pt 2

 Here is my little family room all dressed for Christmas. Since I started only putting up one tree, I switch back and forth between putting it in the Living room and the Family room.

 I love my cozy chair by the fireplace. It's great for reading or watching TV.

 The tree I use in here is flocked. I added burlap ribbon to it this year and I love the way it looks. Unfortunately it just doesnt photograph well with the light I have.

 My fireplace mantle is definitely the focal point.

 Vintage toys we have collected and saved from childhood go under the tree. It helps to keep the child-like wonder of Christmas even when there are no children in the house. (Unless you count my cute hubby!)

I love the graphic nature of this sign I got a few years back. I enjoy bringing it out every year.

I probably will not post again until after the new year. I hope you all have a very joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year. 
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!!

Hi Karen:
What a lovely, warm and inviting room! I love your Christmas decorations. They make me smile. I can see why you enjoy your fireside chaise, too. It looks like the perfect place to put your feet up and enjoy the fire. Thanks for inviting us in to look around. You really are an inspiration, my dear.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Karen,

Your home is breathtaking! Thank you for sharing it with us. May I ask how you hung the curtain over your fireplace? I have one I don't use, and a curious cat who wants to "play" in it. I would love to steal your idea!

Merry Christmas to you and your family,
Maureen

Well done, it is so beautiful!
