Well, it’s after Thanksgiving now and we’re finally starting to settle in. Things feel kind of homey, although not totally perfect. Here’s a bit of what things are shaping up like so far.
This is what we’re referring to as our “Christmas Tree.” I mean…hey, the lights are in the shape of a cone, and there is a hanging green plant in the center. Soon we’ll start hanging ornaments from it. Ha!
Every year we decorate gingerbread houses after stuffing ourselves with Turkey at my in-laws house. This was my contribution, and now my only real Christmas decoration. Everything else is in storage, and I don’t feel like digging it out. :-\
We had to scale back a lot when downsizing to this apartment, but we did bring a ton of wall art. In fact, our movers made a snarky comment about it. We obviously don’t have room for it all (and we have a bunch shoved under our sofa), but here’s a little bit that actually made it up. Little by little…
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
First off, let me say that I realize I’ve been a slacker in the last few weeks by not posting anything. I’ve been working on things (like my front windows!!), but not as much as usual and have actually taken a much needed break for the holidays. I promise to try to be much better about posting in the New Year. (I do have a lot to write about, just very little time to do it.) At any rate, for those of you who didn’t get the paper version…here’s this year’s virtual Christmas card from me to you. Happy Holidays everyone!!
Okay, so maybe I’m a traditionalist, but I’m not crazy about a holiday wreath that’s not round. I very aware that people love buying anything with their initial on it…in fact I used to have a shower curtain with a big embroidered “L” on it, but I just can’t get on board with a monogrammed christmas wreath. No can do. Nosiree!
So what about you? Do you consider yourself more of a holiday traditionalist with your decorating? Or do you like to switch it up each year? Personally, I love ornaments and decorations that remind me of my youth and that are passed down in my family, but I know people that have themed Christmas trees (and of course you see this type of thing in the stores every year as well).
(Can you guys tell that I’m becoming slightly obsessed with holiday decorations already? Believe me, there is more to come on this topic….whether you chime in or not. haha.)
