Reindeer Land (Top of Entertainment Center)

I've been waiting to post the family room decorations until I finished filling up the shelves, but I still haven't figured out what to put on them, so I will just show you the top. I will probably end up putting some village houses on the shelves when I muster up the gumption to haul them up from the basement.
It continues the gold, white, bronze theme of the main tree.

I guess you can't really see the colors, but the twirly stuff sticking out is a bronze color.



As I work at the kitchen counter, this is what I see.
Baking is such a pleasant experience with the room aglow in Christmas lights.



I rarely bake on a work night, but I just finished these banana cookies. The lights must have motivated me. :) DH says they are good. I would post the recipe, but I don't remember where I found it and I can't post without giving the proper credits. Was it on anybody's site who reads this blog? I guess if you are really interested in making them you could google "big soft banana cookies" as that is what they were called.

  1. You and Carole are motivating me to decorate. I just stripped the front step (with lots of help) of the autumn decorations. I put up a red berry wreath with a red cardinal-it's a start and I may make a new one. Christmas lights are the best!

  2. Your Christmas decorating is so much fun to watch, Zoey, and you're giving me ideas, too. I definitely need some cool stuff to look at while baking cookies!

    The thought struck me that your bountiful style and multiple trees could be further evidence that the year you belong in is 1987, your answer on that quiz on November 21st.

    Since my result was belonging in 1955, I googled "Christmas decorations 1955" and a very sweet story popped out:
