Am I the only one feeling like I am really, really behind this year?
This month is going by so fast!
I have to confess that this year it is really taking me a while to get into the Christmas mood.
I am very homesick.
I miss my beautiful Spain and my parents and brothers like crazy. Another Christmas we have to spent apart.
And our son won't be home this year for the holidays, that is another reason for my heavy heart.
And the fact that just today we reached almost 80 degrees in San Antonio, it doesn't help any.
It just doesn't feel like Christmas to me.
But I continue decorating and being cheerful for my husband and children, the house is finished, the gifts have been bought and wrapped, the Christmas cards have been mailed and even the menu has been planned.
Now, I am just going to share with you all what our home looks like this time of the year
and then enjoy the holidays as much as I can.
This year not only we placed the tree in a new spot, but we also gave it a very different look to what we are used to.
It all started when my husband and I went to Lowe's to pick up some screws and saw these pretty green ornaments.
Needless to say we came home with the screws and several bags full or Christmas decor. :)
I also used mesh ribbon to decorate the tree and some white ornaments from Dollar Tree and Walmart.
A simple topper, some of the fabric I used for the mantle and the burlap skirt I made last year
and the tree was finished.
And the family room feels so warm and festive with the Christmas lights on in the evening.
Thank you all for your visit.
I hope to have enough time to share with you the rest of our holiday decor before Christmas.
See you all soon!
