Countdown To Christmas-Day 21

Today is the 4th annual HOLIDAY HOUSE TOUR sponsored by Jen On The Edge. It's fun to see everyone's decorations and make some new blog friends!
My intro on Jen's blog said you should see my decorations...well, I hardly decorated this year, but you can check out LAST YEAR'S EXPLOSION OF WHIMSICAL

Along with the clue in my blog name, here are a few more hints as to where I live and celebrate Christmas...


Merry Christmas from Florida!
We have a screened in porch that we can use year-round and Mr Sunshine lights it up for the holidays.
Here's the tree...
Every year from their birth to age 18, my Mom has bought each of the kids a Christmas ornament that is appropriate for something they experienced that year. There are ballet slippers, a car, a graduation cap, a Martial Arts Santa and a Brownie scout. The rest of the tree has ornaments I collect on vacations.

We'll spend Christmas Day on the phone with family in Massachusetts and Georgia. Last year we spent Christmas afternoon at Downtown Disney listening to music and looking at all the pretty decorations.
Wherever you celebrate the holidays, I wish you peace and happiness.

I adore your ornaments, but the porch is just lovely! A snowman keeping watch over that view! Happy Christmas, LMSS!

Oh I love your decorated starfish! And I would love a screened porch to decorate...although I'm afraid it wouldn't do me much good way up here in South Dakota. Thanks so much for sharing!

I've spent many a Christmas in Florida. I have family in Melbourne and Orlando, so Mickey Mouse ears actually make me feel very Christmas-y!

Awesome!
I would have a million decorated palm trees if I lived in Florida!

So pretty and festive! I love your mom's idea of buying the kids ornaments that speak to their experiences over the year. What wonderful keepsakes. The tree is lovely!

I would never in a million years thought to have decorated the porch. I love what you did there.

The Mickey bell is pretty dang cool, and I'm not much of a Disney person. I think I want one of those, though!

I love personalized dough ornaments. I will definitely be buying my future grandchildren ornaments--it's such a cool tradition.
