"It's Christmastime in the...

COUNTRY!"
Sorry, no city living here.
((hee hee))

I'm still decorating. But I snapped a few photos to share. I'll post more as I go.

Yes, I have a U.S. Constitution Christmas Tree.
How politically incorrect and non global of me.
((giggle))

When my sweet hubs and I first got together, he bought me many Department 56 New England Village pieces. I truly love them!!
Unfortunately I haven't put them out in many years because I had no place to display them. But I decided to empty my kitchen hutch and put them in there. ♥

I'm undecided on whether to take the glass doors off and have them all lit up.
Pet peeve of mine... extension cords running all over the place at Christmastime. **snicker**

Here's the "Dorothy Doll." This little Christmas imp was always an inside family joke. Sadly, with both my parents gone the joke stays only with me now... and my sweet hubs.

Well, time to get back to more decking the halls...

Happy Friday, all.

Be merry and bright.

Beautiful!!! I want to redo all my Christmas decor! :-P Love everything! I wanted to ask you a Q about the big american flag painted on your wall if you didn't mind. I noticed that you painted the trim white. I saw your flag and knew I HAD to do that in my little hallway near the kitchen. I still have the brownish trim but thought to ask if you like the white trim instead? If so, I'll do mine white. Lol You just really inspire me. Thank you!

Thanks, Denise! Heck, I don't mind at all :> )
Actually, the trim is a medium beige color. It's called "Stepping Stones" by Behr. I love it!!!
Since this old farmhouse is rather dark with not a lot of natural light, I prefer the lighter trim color for sure. It also makes the doorways more noticeable which I like too. But go with your gut. That's always your best bet! ♥
I'd love to see a photo of your flag wall! **hint**hint**

Jeepers Judi, I just realized I didn't answer your question. My apologies! I never call him by name.
But I'll give you a hint... Our names rhyme. **insert Jeopardy theme song** You've got one minute to answer. :> )

Karin, I'll ask my hubs to help me download some pics ( I know nothing... haha). This puter is as old as the hills...well, maybe not that old, but old enough. Lol I would like your opinion on some things so hoping I can git 'er done. :-)
