Well, this post has been a long time coming! The month of December has completely gotten away from me what with work and kids and life stuff. Here's a glimpse into the decorating that's been going on around here. I hope you're enjoying the season and the reason!
The living room is always my favorite when it comes to the holidays. This year I went with a simple approach: less stuff on the tree, less stuff on the mantle, less stuff overall. That was sort of my theme for decorating. To me, Christmas can start to feel a little claustrophobic, so I restrained myself. The change is subtle, though. In fact, you might not even notice.
I love these old piano books.
They were mine when I took lessons as a child,
complete with notes from my music teacher.
This is the Island of Misfit Ornaments!
My decorating goal each year is to put a touch of Christmas
in each and every room.
I can't wait till this baby blooms!
Even the powder room gets some Christmas!
We have paper whites growing all over the place. They aren't too
pretty like this, but
the wait will be
so worth it!
While I love red, the family room isn't the place for it.
I keep things a little neutral here.
Normally, this wreath goes above the living room mantle.
Not this year.
Finally, I purchased wreaths for the front windows.
I'd been wanting to do this for a very long time.
I love how it looks!
Greeting cards have all been sent,
but the Christmas rush is far from through.
I hope to post more next week, but
you know how that goes.
In any case, I hope all my blogger friends
