Christmas Home Decorations ~ The Shelf

Well, I am just a little behind in my posts
I am sure you thought I was long gone right about now!
Nope! I am here, I am just worn out. . .Yes, worn out
So much to do so little time.
I love this time of year, 
I love Christmas!
Why, oh why I get myself in such a "dither", I will never know.
I guess it is just me, and that is how it is. . 
My shopping is not done, my decorating has just been thrown together,
No baking has even been planned.
There was once a time in my life when I had it all put together.
By now, I could relax and enjoy. . .Oh, who am I kidding?
It has never been that way for me.
Ok, Ok, I will stop my whining and show you some of
My Christmas Home Decorations.
 I don't have a fireplace mantle.
So I use my shelf as my mantle. . .
I love decorating it.
You can see I have my two Santa and child pictures.
I love them so much, they remind me of my own children.
And the other two pictures belonged to my Aunt Carol. . 
I cherish these pictures too, they remind me of her.
 I just love the shelf decorated for Christmas. . 
Lots of pine and berries.  
Of course they are faux. . I love my faux!
 And the little birds are just the cutest.
I can almost hear them singing.
They are cute little "characters"
As you know I surrounded with "characters".
So the shelf and the little birds are all ready for celebrating.
I love to decorate, I just wish I had more time. . 
Since I have been absent from my little blog
I have realized I am really neglectful of Karie's Chic Creations.
Hopefully I will be able to spend more time with all of you.
Hugs, and I hope you will come back 
For more of my Christmas Decorating.
Next time it will be my Snowmen I will be showing.


  1. Everything looks so good - your shelf is beautiful. Don't feel bad, I didn't get any baking done and I leave Saturday for Northern CA. Hopefully I can do some tomorrow. I think we all push our self's. Have a very Merry Christmas.

  2. I love your shelf turned mantel! It's so festive, and I love the red and white. I use a bureau with a chalkboard over it.

    Merry Christmas!

  3. Oh Kari I love your little mantel/shelf vignette. Thanx so much for sharing it with us at THT!

  4. Your shelf looks beautiful! Love those little birds!!

  5. Karie, if that is just thrown together I'd love to see what it looks like when it's all planned out. lol! It really is a darling display! I love the little birdies. I have one that a friend gave me as a gift. He'll come out to play in January. The subway art is wonderful and I love the Santa pictures! Thanks for sharing with SYC. Have a Merry Christmas!

  6. I do have a mantel and it is decorated, but your sweet shelf makes me want to hang some shelves just to decorate at Christmas.


I read each comment and I appreciate the time you spend to leave me one. Thank you so much.
