A day late...

Sorry, I have just been so busy...

But better late than never...

For this month's Rudolph Day, I decided to feature 2 of the many Christmas books that I have.

The first one I bought about 10 years ago when the Michael's , which is located right next to my development, opened about 10 years ago. This book has been one of my favorite's since the day I bought it....

I am sure you will agree with me that this is a fantastic book after you see these pics..

A charming entry statement....

Why not decorate your gate.....

There is just something so elegant about gold and white....

Look at all these angels....

I love this collection of small wreaths on this window....

Old World Santa' of my favorite things.....

A Beautiful centerpiece....

A Great way to display a Village....

Beautiful garland on the stair railing....

Love the wreath tied to the back of the chairs....

Della Robia Decor.....

Trees made from clay pots...


Now this is my style.....

A Victorian Tree....

Angel Wreath...

Love the lace....

Heavenly angels......

And who doesn't love red transferware for Christmas.....

A mini Victorian tree....

So sweet....

I hoped you enjoyed browsing through this book...

and now for one more Christmas book....

This book I bought 2 years ago at The Christmas Tree Shop for 99cents on Clearance!!

What a buy it was as it is filled with so much eye candy!!

Don't you just love this????

All mini ornaments on this tree...

Great way to decorate a shelf....

And look at this tiered stand...

A silver tinsel tree...

An angel tree....

All white and pink and frilly....

Love these sweet snowmen made out of spindles...

And isn't this one cute?

I love villages...

How original that this is set up on a drum????

I adore the Santa sign on the top of the hutch....

A collection of vintage Santa's.....

Look at all those bottle brush trees?

I am in total love with this pic!

I am sure that maybe you can find these books on Ebay or Amazon. I do highly recommend them if you love to decorate for Christmas.

I will feature more of my Christmas books next month on Rudolph Day and I promise not to be late......

I have also entered my Kitchen post from Christmas 2011 in The Talent Scouting Contest over at Whisperwood Cottage for Cottages and Bugalows Magazine. It should show in a day or two after approval. Please click HERE to see all the entries...
