Rose Christmas Tree

Today for "Show off your cottage Monday", I am going to show pictures of my last year's 'Southern Rose' Christmas tree. My computer is still acting up, so I still can't download any new pictures. I'm not sure where I found this picture of Mr. and Mrs. Claus...isn't it just precious? I like her little china hutch in the background. Even Mrs.Claus loves her dishes!

I love this tree and all of the ornaments. I love the golden angels and the doily covered glitter balls.

I have a few decoupage balls with satin ribbons...

Another glitter ball and silk hydrangeas...

Red organza covered ball and ivory tulle threaded through the limbs.

Crocheted teapot and red 'Southern' roses...

This is my favorite holiday and I love decorating each room.

This year, I may decorate it a little differently. I've been so busy lately, I haven't had much spare time to get all of my decorations up.

I love how this tree looks at night. I love to sit in this room and listen to Christmas music and drink hot chocolate. I love playing Bing Crosby and Mahalia Jackson. They are my favorites. Sometimes my little boy will come and sit beside me and ask me to read him a Christmas story. We love doing that. Then he will read one to me. I'm so glad that he loves to read. I just bought him a new Christmas book titled 'The Family Read Aloud Christmas Treasury'. It is full of Christmas stories. Tonight we will read one called "Christmas Everyday". That sounds like a good one. Don't forget to click on the picture at the top to go to "The House in The Roses" to see the other participants in "Show off your Cottage Monday".

That's where I'm heading to now!
Have a great day!

What a stunning Christmas tree! It is so warm and inviting. I can just imagine sitting there with hot chocolate, listening to music. I LOVE Bing Crosby at Christmas time!! He is what I grew up listening to! It isnt Christmas without him :)

Oh I love the teacup ornament, what a great tree, are you going with the same design this year or are you trying a different color? My mom loves to change the tree colors every year ;0)

I loved your tree.

Lee Laurie, I'm so thrilled to meet you! I haven't ever found your blog before either, so I am so glad that you let me know you stopped by so I could meet you. Your decor from last year is beautiful and I look forward to seeing some of this year as well. I've got to go have a look around your blog.

Very pretty! I'm sorry to hear your computer is still giving you trouble. Maybe it needs a time-out, LOL! Maybe Santa will bring you a new one for Christmas, wouldn't that be sweet! Hope your week is going well and have a wonderful day!

Hi Lee Laurie,
I love your Christmas tree. Aren't the clip-on flowers the best? They look so pretty on your tree. Oh! And I love the doily covered glitter balls. I hope you can get your computer to download your pictures soon...I would love to see your Christmas tree for this year. Have a wonderful day. Until next time.
