Can you guys tell I am trying to play catch up? :)
Three post in one week!
I never have this kind of time!
That is what happens when you wait as long as I did to start my Holiday decorating!
By the time I get it all done, it will be time to take it down.
Now, this is a first for me, normally I am ready by September, but, not this year.
It all just happening too fast!
So, due to my procrastinating, I found myself decorating our home for Christmas at all hours of the night.
Well, what can you do? It has to get done!
Our Christmas tree is finally up,
I know, I know, it is about time! LOL
This year, the tree is a little different, I decorated it all with white poinsettias and gold ornaments mixed
with a little bit of musical ribbon.
And, if you look closely, you can see I also used the same picks as the ones on my front door wreath.
I also created a small vignette on the tray I usually have displayed on the ottoman with the same white flowers.
And I added some ornaments that have some meaning to us. The gold ornaments with the little trees on them are the ones my husband and I bought the first year after we got married 31 years ago.
We were leaving in Germany at the time and it was just the two of us, but, we spent so much money on the hand painted ornaments, we did not have enough money left to buy a Christmas tree. LOL We will never forget that!
We only have a few of them left, but I make sure they show up on our Holiday decorating every year.
I also added some small white angels that were given to us by some good friends.
And, since it is all open space, I also added the same colors and flowers to our entryway table and two little gift towers that I learned how to make from our friend Liz at
Thank you Liz for the great tutorial!
So, there it is! Better late than never!
I am sure there will be changes made in the next couple of weeks, but, for now, our Christmas Tree is up.
Moving on to the kitchen!
Thank you for your visit and see you all soon!
