Christmas for Jake’s theme

Jake has posted some lovely soft images for his Christmas theme, and I still have some up my sleeve, even after posting most of my Christmas pics taken around Savannah a couple of days ago. I thought the decorations on this porch were so simple, but very effective.


This house looked so beautiful, that I wanted to run up those steps and ask whether I could come inside and spend Christmas there.


A few days ago, we saw this beautiful crib scene at our shopping centre in Florida.


Our hotel last night had made the reception area and lounge look very Christmassy indeed,


With Christmas carols playing on the TV.


I used to absolutely love these ornaments when I was a child.


I remember trying to get the bottom off one of them, so that I could get the Father Christmas out. πŸ™‚


Here is Tamsyn, our oldest granddaughter, all ready to pull the sleigh for Santa.


We are still en route to New Jersey, and the traffic is horrendous; nose to tail most of the way. We will get there when we get there, I suppose, but I’m impatient and so excited to see all the family again.

I just have one thing left to say to you all on my Christmas post, and it’s this:

  2. These are fabulous pictures. That house looks very inviting! I’ve just arrived after driving in horrendous traffic as well so I’m feeling your pain! We also experienced hail storms along the way. It’s lovely to be here safely now and I’m hoping all my friends (including blogging friends) have a very safe and happy Christmas πŸ˜‰

  7. Hi,
    The photos of the Christmas decorations look fabulous.
    I would like to wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas, and nothing but the Best for the New Year.

  8. Hope your journey to NJ goes well, but it seems even the annoying traffic has not dampened your Christmas spirit.
    Tamsyn looks festive and adorable!
    Merry Christmas Sylvia!

  9. I too would of run up to that house with you, Sylvia, asking to spend the holidays there! Beautiful shots. Have a joyous time with your family!

  10. Amazing how the Americans put up so many decorations, it most probably would get stolen here :-/
    Enjoy the time with your family when you eventually get there

  11. Tasmyn she’s beautiful,love the decorations. Drive safely,enjoy the trip. Merry christmas to you and your family.. πŸ™‚

  13. That house in Savannah looks exquisitely done. It’s simple but elegant. I love that kind of decor for Christmas! I so wish I was home right now!! And those snow globes, I used to love them too. Glad you’re enjoying your travels!

  14. That’s been a long drive. Love your Christmas pictures! You’re the amazing blogger – dedicated, artistic, funny! YOU WIN!!! (Don’t ask me what!! Let’s say the Everything Award!) Merry Christmas – almost AD!!!! Be safe! πŸ™‚ ML πŸ™‚

    • Thanks so much. I do love to win……anything! πŸ˜€ The ‘Everything Award’ is more than I could ever wish for. πŸ™‚ We arrived and to prove it, we’re here. The grandkids almost knocked us over in the rush to get hugs. Have a wonderful Christmas. I probably won’t have much time to blog for the next few days. Too much to do, and people to chat to. Hugs to you, Marsha. xx

  15. And a very Merry Christmas to you Sylvia. Lovely pictures as always. That really is a beautiful house, beautifully decorated. I can see why you were attracted to it.
    Sorry to hear of your traffic woes but as you say, you’ll get there.
    Tamsyn is very like you btw but I’m sure you hear that a lot. Have a wonderful time with your family. πŸ™‚

  16. I bet them folks would have loved to have you spend Christmas with them!
    I think I remember trying to take apart one of them snow globes, too… but it’s been such a long time ago. I’m feeling beyond ancient.

    • What a nice thing to say, Gunta. They would probably ahve chased me away and told me to go find my own Christmas. πŸ˜†
      Yes, They seem to be coming back into fashion, but are much fancier than the globes we used to have. I’m also feeling beyond ancient after 8 hours in the car today. 😦
