I actually got the idea from watching a Disney YouTube video on decorating your home for the holidays Disneystyle.

You can also by the fake powdery snow too. We did that one year. Just took hand fulls of the stuff and spent and hour literally throwing it on the tree after it was decorated. Kind of a pain to clean up, but you just tip the tree and shake it off then we swept it up and put it in bags for the next year. This only works if you have wood floors. Carpet not so much.
Thanks for the instructions! I might have to try this and see if i can make it look good. Don't think I'll try the powdery snow. We do have wood floors but that sounds like too much work to clean up. The fluffy snow sounds much easier.

Thanks! You know you can buy some Mickey icon Christmas ornaments and then you can have your own Hidden Mickey's in your tree.

When we were at the mall last weekend I showed DBF the ornaments they had for sale in a 10 pack, told him I wanted them, he rolled his eyes at me. LOL I then showed him the tree topper I want, it's Tink and she lights up, and he really rolled his eyes at me, then he picked it up and said "Ok, I know what YOU are getting for Christmas". LOL I have no doubt I won't get either of them but I would love it.

Ok, I had to share more of our decorations throughout the house, plus we finally got our new front livingroom done.



Max's portrait in the background


Steven's proud of his village.


Had to have some Christmas Bears SOMEwhere....


With little space to put out our entire village, we put the rest above the kitchen cabinets.


The Fireplace. That mirror is Steven's grandmothers from the mid 1800's.


Detail from Fireplace:


Decided to give a try at creating our own Mickey Icon wreath. The map in the background is our latest find on Ebay. Disneyland park map from 1961. Finally got it back from the framers. It's huge!


Our new front livingroom.

Very nice! I love your Mickey wreath! DH does the same thing with our village -- he puts it up on top of our cabinets, looks really neat!

I want to be a guest at your house, Zeitzeuge!! That looks so fun! I always hated going to people's houses as a kid during the holiday season where they would maybe only have up one lone decoration or a piddly tree, and it just seemed like they were not in the spirit at all. I like it when places get fully decked out, like you guys did. I love those shows on TLC and the Travel Channel such as "Crazy Christmas Lights" and the "Most Christmasy Places in America" and "Dazzling Holiday Lights," etc., where the entire town gets involved in the Christmas decorating and it feels like you have walked into a scene from a Dickens story. It cannot be Christmasy enough for me during the season.

I took a walk down the street to the bank this morning - and I live on the edge of Beverly Hills, so the street I take is very busy and buzzing with all kinds of activity - and normally there is a big tree up in the lobby of the bank building at this time of year, and there are Christmas trees in the windows of all the buildings I pass by on the way. Nothing! I saw nothing! No traces of Christmas whatsoever! Anywhere! I was mumbling to myself, "Come on, people! It is December 2nd! I realize Halloween and Christmas seemed to run into each other this year, but Christmas is on its way! Get with the program!"

Gorgeous! I love the staircase, the mirror, the wreath, and the dog in the living room! (Sorry, I couldn't resist...as mommy to 4 doggies, I am a true dog fanatic theres' just no other way to put it!) The houses on the cabinets...brilliant! I may have to "borrow" that idea from you, but if anyone asks me I will give credit where credit is do! Thanks for sharing these pictures with us. So Disney-Festive!!!

He is very talented!! We have an original painted by DBF's Dad on our living room wall. It's horses, we love it. It actually survived our house fire a few years back...to the left of it there are circles on the wall, are those plates?

Wow, out of all the stuff to survive. That's so great. The circles on the wall are 6 glass wall sculptures from a Seattle artist we know.

Those are gorgeous as well. You know some gifted artists my friend.

The painting had some light smoke damage but not much else, his Mom took it and used Dawn to clean it up. It cleaned up great and now hangs in our living room. It was in our bedroom during the fire, that's what saved it, the entire wall it's on now was destroyed by the fire so it would been gone too. I had a handpainted fan from Thailand that was on that wall.....it was so gone we had to send photos to the ins. company so they would believe we had it.
