One of my favorite things about this forum is looking at everyone's decorations

I don't have anywhere near the talent that many of you have, but I thought I would share some photos of my house.  I still can't stand up for very long, so please ignore all the wires that are showing.

I love the way this BFF tree turned out.  We always have our little black Christmas dog in honor of our flat-coated retreiver Bandit, and the little handmade nativity from 1935.

I to love seeing people's decorations. The different variety in styles. I usually decorate big time for Christmas. This year I'll be hanging a wreath and a bow on the two outdoor light fixtures. I'm just worn down right now with my mom breaking her hip and having Dementia. But I'll enjoy riding and seeing everyone else's decorations and whom ever post theirs on here.

My mother broke her hip a few years ago and she was miserable and made all the rest of us miserable too.  

 

Then I broke my hip this summer ... and I know why she was so miserable.  

 

I wish you and your mother the best ... and tons of patience and empathy.

Very beautiful. I had a flat-coated retriever for 20 years, her name was Brandy, my dear sister named her. I have the same black  Christmas dog, my Brandy was black.

@juanitalinda Your decorations are beautiful. I do not know how you managed not being able to stand very long at one time. You should be proud of the results.

Thank you. Yes it is hard. And her having Dementia wears you down. It's physically and mentally draining. She loves doing yard work and one day while outside tending to her plants she tripped and fell. That broke her hip. But I do the best I can to keep her happy, comfortable, and safe.
