Christmas Decor Link-up!

I am SO excited to participate in this link-up hosted by Katie over at NFP and Me! Thanks, Katie, for hosting this really fun blog hop! Without further ado, I present to you Dempsey Christmas 2012:

Welcome to our home! (Gotta LOVE Costco's cheap greenery!)

Christmas flowers for Our Lady

One of our living room radiators

Our Advent Wreath on our dining room table

Our beautiful nativity set given to me by my mother as a Christmas gift 3 years ago.

Our stockings

  The tree (yes, it's real!)

One of our kitchen counters all decked out!

Don't know why I love these trees, but I do! We've had them forever.
Made it myself with dollar store items (couldn't tell, could you?)

Jesse Tree when it was still awaiting ornaments.

Ok, now jingle yourself over to NFP and Me, look at all the awesome decorations people have linked up and then add yours!
Peaceful Advent and Merry Christmas!


  1. You have such a fun collection! Making me contemplate a trip to ye olde Big Lots...

    1. And ye olde Dollar Store! Really, some of my prettiest, long-lasting decorations have come from there!

  2. I love the decorations :) We did a lot of Dollar Tree decorations too. I bought some ornaments from there, as well as used tons of candy canes to decorate the tree!

    1. Thank you! Yes, the candy canes that my kids love and I dread because they won't stop begging to eat them! Merry Christmas!!

  3. Gorgeous! So, so pretty. And I'm seriously envious of your living room radiator covers.
    Merry Christmas, Dempseys!!

    1. YEah, about those radiator covers. Did you buy them? Have them custom made? We have steam heat in our home and have yet to cover the radiators...

    2. They were original to the house (c.1925), and I really love them, thanks! Out of 5 original radiators, only 2 have these covers, though. We looked into buying new (custom), trying to salvage old covers, and making our own. Option 3 was the only financially feasible choice, and we tested it out when we installed a new baseboard radiator in our kitchen remodel. I will have to post a pic some time! But, yeah, the salvaged ones are nearly impossible to find, and then they're very pricey. And, custom made new covers are beyond expensive. I figure we lucked out getting the 2 we have!
