I don't put out a lot of Christmas decorations as I prefer to decorate for winter instead. We used to have a tree upstairs and one downstairs, the railings draped with garlands and ribbon but now as empty nesters snowmen, snowflakes and added greens are put out in mid November and stay in place until the end of March with only a few Christmas theme additions. Oh, and the trees....they've shrunk to a small table top silver tinsel one upstairs and the ceramic tree I made downstairs.
If you'll notice, we even have a purple Santa here that a crafty friend made as well as the group of Santas carolling. Cardinals, one of my favourite birds are inside and out and even if they have a winter theme, are enjoyed year round.
The half moon shaped Christmas sign that is outside by the front door is one of my accomplishments when I was doing painting crafts and I like it for the nostalgic element it adds.
Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary at The Little Red House and you'll want to visit her blog for other mosaics.
