A Very Beanie Christmas

Years ago, a friend of mine said upon visiting my home during this time of year that it looked like “Christmas threw up in here.”  Well, of course I took this as a compliment!  I decorate like a crazy person at Christmas and I pay no attention to tasteful, matching décor that looks like Martha Stewart has been all up in herr.  I like color, shiny things and TOYS, TOYS, TOYS!  This year I employed my army of Christmas beanies to give the joint a decidedly goofy charm and I wanted to share this Beanie splendor with you all.

Some of my decorations are actually reverent.

When my kid was little, she called this the “Activity Scene”.

I have kitties, bunnies and chickens in my Nativity.  Don't you?

I do have a few traditional tableaux evident in my house.
