~ holidecor inside and out



Just before Thanksgiving (and just after) my BFF helped me with holiday pots and MacKenzie-Childs bows for a little outside cheer... 





Tucker likes to get a little sniff...


I love the pine cones around the entry!









Such a treat to have the kids help decorate the tree this year... 
The best part of Thanksgiving!

  
A new ornament to celebrate Hillary in Chicago...


And one for Brookes in Utah!

I wonder where Jonathan will be next year???

 Love the new MacKenzie-Childs ornaments this year!






By luck, I chose the warmest day to do the outdoor lights... perfect.

Hoping your December is going great!

Looking beautiful Jan, you have been one busy girl! I love the bows..are they actually Mckenzie Childs bows? I ask because my friend is a nut for everything they do and I don't think she knows about the bows!!
And the gift boxes under the tree, you are way ahead of me...I am officially inspired!

So beautiful and tasteful , total perfection! Tucker is so funny checking out the decor! Love the ornaments for the kids locations, and the owl tree topper! BFF made the entrance so special. Love all the MC ribbon--very festive. Christmas at its finest. Love you, miss you, wish I could kiss you! Mom

Just gorgeous and so festive, Jan. I love all the lovely cheer outdoors - what a gift to your neighborhood. And your tree looks so pretty. Hope you are enjoying the season! XOXO

Thanks to all! Tina, they are not bows until my friend Kyle gets her hands on the ribbon! I ordered 12 - 10 yard rolls so I had well over 100 yards of ribbon represented! Ridiculous.. I over-ordered thinking I'd send back what we didn't use. Seems there's always a place for another MC bow! :)

I'm loving the ribbon. It is a nice diversion from the usual holiday look and so rich looking. The tree is beautiful.

Jan, I'm impressed with all you out door greenery embellished with McK-C ribbon. Great job! I've thought about using my McK-C ornament boxes under the tree till packages are put out. Fun to see that you have done just that! Yes, yes, yes ~ I adore the new McK-C ornaments this year, but yikes on the price. I haven't yet decided which I might add. I've collected the McK-C ornaments for as many years as they've been offering them. They continue to enchant me. Which is your favorite this year?

Sarah! I love all the ornaments in the Chicken Palace Ball collection! Especially the Pigeen and Bunny O'Hare :)
