Deck The Halls 12/22

I finally have a new lens for my camera, so I got together a post of most of the rest of my Christmas decorations.



This is the tablescape I was going to post last week...better late than never!




'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring...not even a mouse...eek!




I call this my Krinkles tree. It's got lots of Christmas Krinkles ornaments by Patience Brewster. I just love her whimsical Krinkles ornaments.


Cute little Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel...

A little gingerbread couple, by Lenox...




This is the Bath and Bodyworks gingerbread house luminary that's taken the blog world by storm. I was lucky enough to find one locally...


Dept. 56 Dickens Village...





***

A couple of bloggers made the chocolate mice last year and I thought they were so cute. This year I decided to try my hand at making them. I wasn't brave enough, though, to try to give them any eyes! To make these cute little critters just melt some chocolate. Then dip stemmed maraschino cherries into the chocolate and place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Next attach a Hershey's Kiss next to the chocolate-covered cherry to form the head (the melted chocolate will act as your glue). And finally, slip two sliced almonds in between the Kiss and the chocolate cherry to make ears, and...voila...you have a chocolate mouse.
