Christmas Touches

Christmas Touches

Christmas is in full swing around The Manor so I thought I would share one of my favorite things.

I love this little guy…..

IMG_6549His eyes just seem to twinkle!

IMG_6542I have him perched on an old German wicker basket along with my favorite Christmas pillow (which doesn’t really look very Christmasy!)


Some silver winter picks along with some beaded garland were added to his pouch!

Yes, that is some garland crumbs that fell from the banister when I had to replace another strand of lights that went out!!!IMG_6550A beautiful saying from a wonderful poet and a true sentiment to all who enter our home!


Merry Christmas!



  1. Sheryll & Critters. :

    So beautiful. Merry Christmas! It has been keeping at about 84 this past week, so I have had to pull weeds and mow the lawn, so the house is a disaster and not sure I will ever get it clean, much less decorated…… ya know?

  2. Oh how I love that pillow and Santa. Your mantel looks so pretty too ANgela. I came by the other day but could not comment.

  3. Your Santa is stunning…lovely quote too!

  4. shirley@housepitalitydesigns :

    It is no wonder why you love this “guy”…and Emerson is one of my very favorite!…When my daughter in law was expecting, my son said, if it was a boy, he would name it after his favorite author, “Emerson”…but they had a girl and she is the light of our lives!..

  5. Hi, Angela! Your santa is so beautiful! And I love the pillow. Great Christmas vignette!

  6. Doreen Sargente :

    I have that Santa too! I think we’re sistas from a different mista! lol

  7. Your Santa is wonderful. I love the pillow too. Do you leave it out all year? I’ve always loved that sentiment.

  8. Vashti Quiroz-Vega :

    Hi Angela! Love the Santa. I have a favorite too. Have a great Monday night.
