The Foyer & Dining Room

I'm linking up to Kelly's blog again for Show Us Your Life. I skipped laundry room week because there is absolutely nothing to look at in mine. So here's the foyer from the dining room.
This is the view from the front door. I like how you can see the reflection of our tree in the mirror. I didn't notice that when I took the picture.
This is a nativity set that I bought in Guatemala when we were there in January. It's all hand made. I'm not sure why all the people are women. I guess I should do some research on that huh??
Santa Claus is a tree topper that I got on sale after Christmas at Louisiana one year. He was $80 but I think I paid $20 for him.  The poinsettia topiary's you see in the mirror actually belong on the porch. We had bad weather the other night with awful wind so we brought them in & they haven't made their way back out.
I was trying to take a picture of the mirror without having me in the picture because I have on my footy pj's!! The reflection is the dining room.
I'm going to share the dining room while I'm at it. This is the view from the foyer.
The centerpiece is an iron 5 candle holder that I got on sale at Hob Lob several years ago. I added greenery & picks.
 Here's another nativity scene & reindeer.
 A bowl of fruit & some random ornaments.
I bought 2 of these crystals after Christmas last year & then I bought 2 more at a gift shop in town that was going out of business. I hung them from the chandelier.
 I took this one with the lights off. I'm still learning about the different settings on my camera & I thought this one was pretty.
So that's my foyer & dining room. Thanks for visiting!
