Here’s another beautiful home decorated for Christmas. I was so glad when Shelli called and asked if I would help her with her Christmas decorating this year.
During our day of decorating, we focused on her family room. Shelli has a large corner entertainment center she had built after she and her family moved into their home. (before)
This is where Shelli displays her “Snowman Village”. Shelli has been collecting snowmen for YEARS! Just look at this collection!
Her collection ranges from vintage, to primitive, to glittered, to whimsical and everywhere in between! One of her latest and one of her favorites is the water tower snowman. (Seen here in the center to the left of the tree.)
This collection covers the top of her entertainment center plus two shelves below. Just beautiful! (Again, I lost track of how many times I was up and down an 8′ ladder to create this village! But worth every step!)
Shelli has a gorgeous 9′ Christmas tree which she centers along a bank of four beautifully treated windows. Notice the unique window treatments Shelli designed and a friend made for her. They are hung from metal shelves turned upside down! Isn’t that clever! We decorated the tree in shades of red, copper, bronze, gold, and purple.
We continued with a red, gold and bronze color scheme on her mantle. Shelli purchased the “weeping” garland last year on a family Christmas trip to Wyoming.
To the left of the fireplace is a niche with a beautiful, tall painted buffet. (before)
Here we displayed a portion of Shelli’s collection of Trees and Santas.

As I sit here writing, I am surrounded by my own Christmas decorations…staring at me…patiently waiting to be opened…and put up!
Soon! I promise! I WILL post about my own house!
(This is a declaration to myself!)
Surely, I’m not the only one with an undecorated house!
