I could go on and on about each one of these amazing and loving Seniors...but I will spare you all. I know during the Christmas Season we are very focused on kids (as it should be)....but don't forget the neglected Seniors. I promise it will make your heart grow three sizes!

|I originally thought I would do all silver and gold on the mantel, but just could not make it look right...so snowy white took over. It never turns out the way your originally envisioned!|
|The angels are from LaurieAnna's.|
|I found these Dickens Carolers at Lone Star Antique Mall. My friend Gayla was not sure she wanted to sell them, but finally caved and they are at my house now!|
|Also available at LaurieAnna's|
|This is the table in the breakfast area right off the den. Remember, we had to seat 50 people...so here is seating for another 6.|
|Tin cake plates available at LaruieAnna's. Are you noticing a theme????|
Have you ever found that piece that you just know you have to have. Without looking at the price tag, you just know it is going in your house and exactly where it will go. Well, the Christmas print at the top of this post was just such an item for me. Never, ever did I even think about resale...I knew I wanted this for my very own. It became my inspiration for the entire den and I love it hanging over the fireplace. It may just have to be out all the time...not just at Christmas!

|Welcome to Denis' House. This is then entry way as you walk in the front door. The coat tree has been entrusted to me by my friend, Teresa...it belonged to her Great Grandmother and welcomes everyone to the house.|
|I love this old red sled....puts me in the mood for snow!|
|With 50 guests coming...here is seating for 8 in the dining room. We only need to find seats for 42 more!|
|I love all the red...makes a great splash as this is the first room you see as you walk in the front door.|
|The place mats are paper and have the imprint of the dish and silverware on it. Got these at LaurieAnna's|
|My wonderful white hutch that I bought off of EBay for resale....yep, it stayed in my house!|
|My red hutch...another item bought for resale that never made it to the mall!|
|These gold trimmed dishes were bought for resale also...I really suck at this business!|
|This is the Giving Tree. All guests at the party (and anyone who comes to my house during the holidays) gets to take an ornament from this tree. I collect ornaments all year long and love watching folks pick the one they like the best.|
|The Giving Tree is sitting in a vintage suitcase...yep, another item purchased for resale!|
|A view of the dining room.|

How honored I was while pulling up one of my favorite blogs to see that my friend and artist, Cindy at Fat Cow Studio had honored this blog with a Liebster Award!

Cindy is from Granbury, Texas and is a drafter, artist and designer. She says in her profile that she is looking for ways to create every day and we are lucky that she shares that with us. We were both dealers at the Homestead Antique Fair in Hico a few weeks back and she does some wonderful jewelry. Visit her and tell her Denis sent you!
