Total Basset Case: Christmas Details

Dec 11, 2012

Christmas Details

After we put our tree up last weekend, I have continued to add a few holiday details around the house.
We have so many special ornaments on our tree that mean so much to us.
These range from sentimental to whimsical and fun.
Every year since I was little my Mamaw would give my cousins and I a special ornament.
I now have 25+ of these great ornaments with the year on the bottom and love adding them to the tree each year.
The Mister's mom also gives us meaningful Keepsake ornaments from Hallmark each year.
We have also recently developed quite the basset hound ornament collection.
Maybe one day we can have a separate basset tree entirely.
I love seeing such important and special pieces on our tree.
 On our shelves we have the Yarn Trees and the Santa Hat Glitter Canvas
A few details above our cabinets.
 And a simple centerpiece on our dining table.
 And those are our little Christmas details!

Linking up with Megan for the Christmas Cheer Link Up!

So beautiful!

We bought our tree last night, it's thawing out now and we will decorate tonight. With all the snow in MN it really is feeling like Christmas.

Thanks for sharing!
Hugs,
Kara

Beautiful! I look forward to putting up my sentimental ornaments up the most. I love that basset one! I hope you have an all basset tree one year that would be so cute!

Jill said...

I love your decorations! Your tree reminds me of ours - lots of important, sentimental ornaments versus a themed tree :) I want to take some photos of my decorations for the blog...I need to get around to that :)

This solidifies it..I'm coming to live there.

Love it all! So beautiful!

We have the same tradition with the Hallmark ornaments. I love how they always have the year on them so you can remember when you got them!

I love the meaningful ornaments too. We only have around 10 or so, but I love them all and can't wait to add to them. :)

I love everything!!! I want a separate tree for my pets too :) That's really nice that you get the keepsake ornaments every year too, I love the just engaged one! And I want to make a glitter santa hat!

Holly said...

Love that Santa hat canvas!! I have plans to make a glitter deer canvas!

Also, love that tray arrangement :) And you would have lots of basset ornaments ;) But seriously, who doesn't love a good puppy ornament?!

Everything looks SO fabulous! My absolute favorite is the basset ornament! We used to raise bassets and I am MORE than ready to have my own!

Our tree has a mixture of "joy" ornaments along with dachshund, MSU and Harley Davidson ornaments. Next year I want to do a tree in our man cave/guest living room with all Mississippi State ornaments. And one in our dining room with nothing but "joy" ornaments. Well... one can sit and dream, right?!

I have the same basset ornament (the first one in the top right corner). It was given to us by my mother-in-law the first year we got Beauford. It is one of my favorites!
