Deck the Halls, Part III-The Living Room

.
Today, Applejack Lane is joining  Susan at Thoughts From Over the Rainbow  for Deck the Halls.  We'll head into the living room today.

Here is my Santa banister with Santas that were special gifts or purchases...





One year our Frazier fir fell down not once, but twice, breaking a lot of ornaments.  After decorating the tree three different times that year,  I took the tree down before it could fall a third time, and just decorated the banister with all my Santas from the tree.   I've been doing the Santa banister ever since...

Even the kitties can join this choir...



A courtly pair of Carolers in red...

Vintage ornaments, a Christmas advertising plate from 1908, and a Caroling shopper on the washstand...

And the slim tree...

And a pillow for Santa to rest his head...

Thank you for stopping by Applejack Lane today..
Merry Christmas!

Joan-Necessity is the mother of invention! After three times I might have called off all decorations. You have a wonderful collection of Santas. I especially love sthe one from your first Christmas together! Thanks for joining Deck the Halls!

What a great collection of Santas, and your tree is so pretty. You have more patience than me - I probably would not have decorated it the 3rd time.

Love the idea of your Santa banister. I used to decorate our banister using a specific set of ornaments. Haven't done that in years, but your post has given me inspiration! Thank you for sharing.
