Sharing a little of the Christmas decorations I've added to our home. Have you finished decorating yet?

I don't think I ever finish decorating. My brain is always coming up with more ideas than I'm able to complete. Guess I can always save those for the next year.
There are some things that must be used every year in the Christmas decor. This is a little snowman that my youngest daughter made when she was just ten. It's the Mad Hatter from the latest Alice in Wonderland. I used to make altered snowman for my etsy shop back then and she wanted to make one too.
The decor in the foyer include a pair of vintage ice skates, a "SNOW" sign, and an antique crock with greenery.
I typically stay away from the traditional reds and greens of Christmas because they usually don't fit with my decor. This year, I was dead set on using red and green tartan. I love all tartans if you didn't notice my from tartan throw post :) I found this needlepoint pillow earlier this year at the thrift store. Its colors and design contain just enough blue to tie everything together. (I have a thing for needlepoint pillows too!)

Thank you for stopping by The Altered Past and spending a little time with me as I share some Christmas decor. I've got a little more to share later...the front porch and the shed.
