Holiday Blog Hop

I am excited to be a part of a Holiday Blog Hop organized by Lori.

Sadly, the dark days have made it hard to photograph some of my favorite Christmas decorations. Just imagine these pictures with light streaming in through the window.

I don’t have a lot of Christmas quilts but I do have this one (that actually hangs year round).

It is all wool and the trees say Merry Christmas to me.

I also have some sweet angel ornaments made from bits and pieces of old quilts. Both were gifts and I love to remembering the gift giver when I hang them on the tree.

Another favorite is our Santa collection that decorates our mantle. (We have many more Santas but I’m trying to simplify). And of course some log cabin stockings that I made for my husband and me.

In the mirror you can see some of my wall of little quilts, partially hidden by the tree.

We have boxes and boxes of decorations that probably won’t come out this year including nutcrackers and snow guys (again, leaning into simplicity). But here are a few of my favorite nativities. It would not be Christmas without baby Jesus in the manger.

Thanks to Lori for organizing this fun blog hop. Just a few days of inspiration left. And thank you for stopping by.

  1. GM! What a delightful tour of all your Christmas mementos and memories… I can relate to leaving one quilt on display year round as I too do that…and also angels. There are always so many treasured memories; do enjoy your trip down memory lane and the making of new ones this season, too!

  2. Love your Santas and nativities. I love all the small quilts. Many look like some of Lori’s quilt alongside. Merry Christmas

  3. I’ve always loved the Juniper and Mistletoe quilt! Yours is lovely!! YOur mantle is so pretty. I wish we had a fireplace with a mantle to decorate.
    The child made Jesus in a Manger is sooooo precious!! Thanks for being part of the hop! I’m really enjoying it. Merry Christmas!

  4. I would like to know your hanging system for all the little quilts. There’s nothing showing from the front. Love all your decorating, elegant in it’s simplicity.

  5. oooh happy to meet you! I started a series on connection stories… usually on Tuesdays but more through the holidays, and am very about connecting with others. I liked reading yours… I will add your link in anytime you want to write about a connection you made with others… I hope this encourages others to reach out too. I get stories sent to me all the time now and love reading them!!
    I am LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color, write on connections on tuesdays, lists of things I liked on thursdays, painting on Fridays, quilting on saturdays, and fiction on Sundays. That’s me in a nutshell! Please consider adding to our Tuesday stories… I’ll keep in touch, we’re not too far apart now that we moved to Colorado! I have another friend in Seattle and one on Widbey Island

  10. Your wall of quilts is inspiring. I love the little angel ornaments. It is fun to get out the treasures each year. I got out fewer decorations but am enjoying what is out – perhaps even more.

  11. Very pretty home for the Holiday. Lucky you with so many grandchildren, overflowing table of pictures! I love to decorate with nativity sets also and I love how you turned your Beyond the Cherry Tree into a table runner. Such a beautiful pattern! Merry Christmas and thank you for giving us a peek into your home!

  12. So very cool, Juliann, to be part of a hop and to have so many wonderful handmade and/or special decorations to share. I especially love that first quilt and the quilt squares on the wall. and your collection of nativity scenes (particularly that first one!)
