The other thing I'm keeping in my dining room (because it's easy and accessible) is my display of little putz houses.
These are houses (and a church) made of cardboard and painted in fun colors. Some of mine are vintage, while others are new.
Anywho, I have a few in the corner cupboard (which I will tell the story of, someday) and on the very cool old tea table (which also has a story, both of which involve DL and his quest to take over the furniture world, sort of) and they look really nice there.
I like to throw in as many bottle brush trees as I can, because they are so 1955. I'll bet Agatha Christie had bottle brush trees at Greenway.

When I talked about decorating for Christmas this year, I said I was going to limit the decor to the living room and dining room. With folks coming and going the week of Christmas (and kid #2 leaving to go back on Christmas Day), I wanted to keep it very simple.
