It's Christmas Eve!

I've stayed up so late fiddling with pictures that it's now Christmas Eve. I spent the day cleaning and putting the finishing touches on decorating. Our family comes on Christmas day, with more family coming for our town's New Year's celebration. So I feel like I have another whole week to enjoy the decorations.
Here's what I put inside the coffee table...I had to go raid my mom's ornament stash to get enough to fill the trays. It's sparkly and pretty though!!
The outside of our front door is painted berry red...one of these days I want to paint the inside the same. Aren't these curtains wonderful? Someone put a lot of time into making these. I found them in a box of stuff I got an an auction.

Here's the top of the TV cabinet. The map is an old school map...I loooove old maps.

Tonite I started making some new stockings out of sweaters I felted in the washing machine. I got one done. As you can tell, many times I do things at the last minute. but then I don't have little children like many of the bloggers I read. Things are definitely less hectic on Christmas Eve when your kids are bigger. Tomorrow is for church and cooking!
