The Talk of the Neighborhood…Our Front Yard

Here it is, the biggest inflatable sock monkey I could find….




And of course, we had to put some sock monkey ornaments on our tree out front. They came from Oriental Trading, and my daughter had a lot of fun putting them together.

The Stockings Were Hung...


We no longer have a fireplace (we took it out) but the stockings were still hung with care!

Stockings made by Ellen of The Chilly Dog.

Adoringly Gazing at the Tree


This menagerie is by the sled, next to the tree, adoringly gazing up at all the monkeys.

Sock Monkeys Go Sledding

I borrowed my mom's huge sled as it makes the perfect vessel for a gaggle of monkeys. This is set up by the tree.


Mama, little baby, and daddy monkey


So many sock monkeys!

Sock Monkey, Light My Way


This cute little guy is right where we plug in the tree. He's the perfect accent and cover for the plug!

Under the TV


We recently got with the cool kids club and mounted our TV on the wall. Rather than do some sort of entertainment center underneath we decided a simple shelf is best. Right now it is also the perfect resting place for some holiday sock monkeys.

A Monkey Everywhere You Turn


This is opposite the ceramic trees and monkeys in the froth entry…because of course there must be a sock monkey in as many places as possible!

The Entryway, Continued...

After the front entry there is a very small hallway into the main big room of our house. I of course had to decorate it as well!

I know I showed pictures of the front entrance earlier but since then I have hauled in a giant blow mold Santa I scored at a flea market. I have six light up blow mold Santas and this is the largest one, the other three are the small sized ones at just over a foot high each. Those are in storage for next year, but I had to put at least one Santa out, right?!?

This is when you first walk in the front door…it takes a lot of cords to power the trees and Santa. I'm still thinking through how to best camouflage those before our Open House.


Then the lawyer's bookcase with more monkeys and yet another ceramic tree.


More pictures and monkeys and of course the tree and let's not forget the giant sock monkey lawn ornament…all will be chronicled here!

The Front Entryway


Obviously I have a thing for ceramic Christmas trees. My grandmother made the giant one on the left. I love the Christmas cactus, very unique. This shot doesn't even include the giant blow mold Santa I hauled in the house today. I'm crazy I guess.
