Deck the Dining Room!

It's time to Deck the Halls again with Susan at Thoughts From Over theRainbow and Rhoda at Southern Hospitality.   Last week, we took a tour of the kitchen.  This week, we'll head into the dining room.  We just finished with the company party last night so things might be in a little disarray.  But your still welcome at Applejack Lane.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

My ladies at the shop gave me this Jim Shore set for Christmas a few years ago.


Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!

I absolutely love your Santa and sleigh on the table. I might have to try to find one on Ebay for us! I also decorated with magnolia leaves this year- used them on our banister garland. They look lovely for about a week and then dry out! I have already replaced them twice! :D

My favorite is still the Ghost of Christmas Past...because of the wild hair!
