Christmas Decorating On the Inside ~ The Breakfast Nook

Well it's almost time to take down all the Christmas decorations for another year!
I know sooner get into the holiday and's all over! geesshh!
Well here are a few areas of the house that I did get done decorating.
Never got it all done, but ol was enough! And I am wore out!
Seems like since we moved here in July, all I have done is put things away!
The move, the flood, and now Christmas!
AND....then we are suppose to move again in July!!!
I so hope the owners decide to stay away another year!
I Just want a break for awhile lol!
These are photos of our breakfast nook area. Jack and I love red and green,
and cardinals and poinsettia's,
(you probably figured that from the outdoor decorating,)
and apples and holly berries as you will see...oh and gold too! :)
Oh and plaids too! Have no idea what you would call our flavor of decorating.
We have a lot of traditional and french country going on in this house,
but this fits in just fine, we think anyway.
It feels homey and that a word?
We have no curtains in the windows in the breakfast nook
or the huge wall of sliding doors off the family room
just behind the breakfast nook....
decided not to waste our money buying when we will only be moving
again shortly anyway. Plus we have a beautiful view out all the windows
 to the pool area, the ponds, and the woods!
And I love all the light during the day shining in! :)
We got these pretty dishes with cardinals at a place we love to shop
at in Plant City, FL. call Southern Hospitality or SOHO for short!
It's an awesome place for crafts, home decor and decorating, furniture, and gift ideas!
If you live near it, I would highly recommend you visit.
Awesome place for any holiday decorating!
When Jack and I found this setting all laid out on a table there,
we bought the entire set!
It has a cookie jar, milk pitcher, salt and pepper shakers, the dinner plates,
salad plates, and soup bowls. We bought the place mats and napkins too,
along with the ceramic Santa napkin rings. And the dinner bell hehe!
We also got two of the cardinal figurines sitting on the mercury glass balls.
We had a ball that night!
That was the Christmas before Jacks stroke almost five years ago now,
and we still love it all! Oh that's where we also got the six Christmas trees we use for the
and all the apple and holly berry garland, and apple holly berry stick thingies we stick in our Christmas tree and decorated the chandeliers with.
Oh and the cardinals!!! 
We walked out of that store that night with FOUR CARTS besides the six trees lol!
It's an AWESOME store!!!!  One of our FAVORITES!!!! 
They love it when we come there shopping lol!
They even know our names! :)

I just love these dishes!
We don't eat on them though lol....they are just displayed on the table.
We use our other dishes for the eating part hehe!
Well that's it for that area of the house!
More coming for the formal dining room and family room.
I did do a little bit in the guest bathroom and the formal living room,
but not near as much as I usually do. The master bedroom and guest bedroom
didn't get anything decorated this year at all!
Thanks for the visit and letting me share with you! :)
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Now the march is on for the New Year!!! 
Wow!!! Can you believe we are going into 2013!!!
Lord, where have the years gone too!
TaTa Till Later!!!
Love and Stuff!
God's Blessings to You!!
