The “BIG” Picture!

We watched our first Christmas movie last night.


As a matter of fact, I didn’t even remember it being a Christmas movie. I was just in the mood for a sweet old Walt Disney show.


Buster decided it was ‘his’ special movie and he found a good spot to watch.


“This is my favorite part….can you pause it?”




I think I can see even better over here.


And now for the BIG picture!


I’ve done a little decorating over the weekend and I’ll keep ‘playing’ and adding more and share close ups soon.


What’s your favorite Christmas movie?

LOVE your TV cabinet. The decor looks great so far! There are a lot of good Xmas movies out there... I like "A Christmas Story," "White Christmas," "Meet Me In St. Louis" just to name a few.

I LOVED Lady & the Tramp! When I was young my parents took us to Disney World and my prize there was a stuffed Lady!

I think you need a real Buster :-)

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

So adorable! My favorite is The Christmas Story.

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

Ha! Looks like Buster really enjoyed the movie -- I think he's got a crush on Lady! I've always loved that movie -- the spaghetti part gets me every time!

Cute post. How old are we? Forever young. We always watched Rudolph with Burl Ives.

Lady and the Tramp was one of the first movies I saw as a child. My favorite Christmas movie is The Christmas Story. I have it memorized. xo Laura

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! My favourite movie with the kids is Home Alone, I never get tired of it. When on my own, Scrooge has to on. I love the newest one with Jim Carrey in it, the attention to detail is amazing. Enjoy the decorating. xx

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love this movie! I think I need to get it for Tiger and watch it with him! I'm not sure I have a favorite Christmas movie, lol. Love your decorating, I'm working on mine this week! :) said...

I and hubby like Christmas Vacation too.

Your place looks lovely!

We have a large screen also.

Like being at the show right.

We watched two nights ago.

Christmas with the Celtic woman. The Celic Christmas in England.
What heavenly voices.

The one lady dances and plays the violin.

There is also the Celic thunder with men only . I am sure will be soon.
They all sing just as good.

I like the old man I call him.

George MCDonald with my fav song of him singing. I'm Going to Be.

Mine is hands down, "White Christmas" but a close second is "The Bishop's Wife." Any Disney movie is a great choice, too.


Jeanne said...

I like the Grinch movie.
Buster is so sweet!!

PatC - All is Bright said...

Loved your pictures. It brought a smile to my face. My favorite all time holiday movie is "It's a Wonderful Life" with Donna Reed and Jimmy Steward.


Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Happy December~~ I would never have thought of this being a Holiday movie, but it sure is now that you remind me. I love your puppy, I wouldn't mind having one like that.

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

I love your relaxing room.

Fav Christmas movie - Christmas Comes to Willow Creek.

Catherine Holman said...

I love that movie and all your book shelves around entertainment cabinet!

Introverted Art said...

I have a few faves: "Love, Actually" and "About a Boy"

Lynn said...

I had no idea that Lady and The Tramp was a Christmas movie either! Guess it has been a while since I've watched it too. Love all your pictures from your previous posts too!

Noelle the dreamer said...

My favourite, Diane? The Christmas Card...

The Boston Lady said...

I never thought of it as a Christmas movie either - I must have watched it dozens of times with my kids. Jock is my favorite! I saw someone mention the Albert Finney "Scrooge" movie, I love that one too, but all time favorite is "It's a Wonderful Life" They are showing it at a theater nearby on Christmas Eve and I really would love to see it on the really big screen!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

What a beautiful family room you have, Diane! I haven't seen Lady and the Tramp in years and didn't remember it was a Christmas movie. I don't have a special favorite, but my family always has to watch Christmas Vacation and/or Home Alone. They are both good and we laugh like we've never seen them before!

Doreen@househoneys said...

Add me to the 'I didn't know it was a Christmas movie' club, but I do remember I loved it! I suppose 'It's a Wonderful Life' would be my fav.

You had me thinking Buster was for real for a


Veronica Roth said...

I'm not much for Disney, but love that old how the Grinch stole Christmas with Boris Karloff narrating. You know the one? Love his voice. :)

Red Rose Alley said...

What a sweet post, Diane. I love watching Disney movies sometimes. My favorite Christmas show is "White Christmas." It's a classic that I watch every year.

Enjoy the season!

Buster is too cute watching a Christmas movie!! I have a little Yorkie stuffed animal that watches over me in my sewing room. I tried to have it in the living room, but my Yorkie girls wouldn't stop barking at it. I think they thought he was real...too funny!

Kathy said...

Your dog is so adorable! I love how he watches TV with you.

I don't know if I have a FAVORITE Christmas movie. I watch a lot of the specials on TV. I guess if I had to choose one it would be "It's a Wonderful Life." My favorite TV special is "A Charlie Brown Christmas".

Dawn WeCallItJunkin said...

I'm so glad you reminded me about this movie! I'd also forgotten it was set at Christmas, and I'd love to watch it with my girls. Cute post w/ your little doggie ;)
Thanks for your comment on my Pringles can Christmas candle, yes, you can make it! Blessings - Dawn

Donna said...

I had to laugh about Buster watching the movie and swooning over Lady! Your house is looking festive! Our favorite movie is It's a Wonderful Life.

Linda Walker said...

Lady and the Tramp! Love that movie!
I wonder how many times I have watched and enjoyed that movie as a youngster and as an adult???? Just had some fun scrolling through several of your posts that I have missed. Loved your dolls! What a collection! xo

Karen and Gerard said...

My favorite Christmas movie is Bells of St. Mary's and cry at the end every time even though I know what happens.

How did that bear get in on the tea party with the dolls? That's a nice collection. I've heard it best to have your collection in one place like you do, but I still have stuffed animals all over my house.

Simply Shelley said...

So cute :) Blessings

It's Just Dottie said...

You have the sweetest child like spirit.....
Hugs, Dottie

Deb~Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

Hands down, my favourite Christmas movie is "It's A Wonderful Life". Cry my heart out each time I see it. I don't remember Lady and The Tramp as a Christmas movie either, I always remember the scene where they are eating spaghetti :O) Deb

I just saw Lady and the Tramp pajamas in Vermont's Country Store catalog. :) Merry Christmas.
