Last spring, my husband and I moved into our current apartment, so this is the first Christmas we've had here!   We have three small areas where we can decorate for the season:  a metal year-'round ornament tree in the dining area, the mantle over the fireplace, and a small antique sewing machine console in front of the living room window.

I'm rather pleased with how they all came out, although there were still several items in the bins that we just had no room for.

Evergreen garland and lights give this metal ornament tree the illusion of being an evergreen tree.  Our ornaments are an eclectic collection of purchased items, stitched ornaments and a few of my (now adult) children's creations from when they were small.

This was an experiment I did a few years ago, creating a cross stitched 3D TARDIS with perforated plastic.  It was such a pain in the neck to stitch together, and the plastic bows in slightly, so I've never been tempted to make another.

This stuffed teddy ornament was made from a scrap of fabric from a baby blanket I quilted for my second oldest daughter.

Just a few favorite ornaments - the one in the center is a Mill Hill cross stitch kit, stitched on gold perforated paper and beaded.   I so love how that came out!

Our mantle was filled with assorted Santas, nutcrackers and tomtes and provided a good place to display assorted leftover ornaments that found no place on the tree.

Two large Nuremberg style angels are sharing space with my peacock figuring in front of the window.

Finally, our greenman wallhanging got a Yuletide crown for the occasion.
