Jarvis House Christmas Images 2013

 Over the time I have collected small Christmas ornaments.  I arrange them in different ways each year, sometimes adding new ones, (I do volunteer in a thrift shop!) and sometimes retiring others to rest until needed another year.
 I have a very nice hutch in the kitchen which makes a great backdrop for smalls.
 This is a plastic Santa candy holder from my childhood in the 50's.
 Other Santas have come along lately.
 I put a Christmas stocking on the ears or my  1950's Windsor chairs.
 A pair of Annalee dolls.  There was only one slipper on the Santas, so I made new ones from green felt.
 Other Annalee figures.
 This year, instead of putting up a huge tree, I decided to put the Shiny Brites in glass jars and Chrystal dishes.
 The Grinch and friends cuddle.
 Santa caps on chairs.
 Holiday books on the coffee table.
 Stockings on cupboard doors.
 This was a leftover doll last year at the thrift  shop. So adorable.
 Shiny Brites and other ornaments on the dining room chandelier.
 A huge clay cat on the steam radiator.
I saw lights in the powder room at the GCHA historical Society and decided to do that too.
 Mantel
 Wood stack
 The Thanksgiving cactus in full bloom, with the Christmas cactus budding out.
Small trees and a lantern on the kitchen window.
 Trays of rolled cookies waiting to go into the oven.

A Carvel cake that was not used for Thanksgiving, turned upside down and poorly  lettered, wishing you all a Merry Christmas 2013!

I feel like I've been to your home now. Thanks for the tour. Love all your Santas. I have old ornaments, a few snow baby items, nutcrackers scattered around my table and mantel. I went low on the decorations this year.
