So, in my family we have a rule that you can’t decorate for Christmas until after my older sister’s birthday. Well, I totally just broke that rule. Dan-the hubby, is on vacation from work this week and we decorated tonight. We aren’t home for a whole evening together all that often, and we don’t have all the much time all that often, so we took advantage of it. And I love it. I got several things the day after Christmas last year and had forgotten all of them! For a tree I have my mom and dad’s old tree, so it is shedding bad and getting pretty sparse. So, they had those giant ornament balls last year and I picked up several to take up a lot of room so the tree didn’t look so sparse. I also got those giant, ceramic lights that are really vintage style. I love how it looks. And I got a new tree topper. I had completely forgotten all about all my new stuff. It was like Christmas morning of decorating 😀 Without further adieu, here are my decorations.
Sorry, it is a bit blurry, I didn’t realize that. The little tree beside the big tree has all ornaments that my older sister has made for the hubbs and me. She does it every year along with our Christmas present.
This is a little tree my mom made me. It is made out of clear beads, mainly starburst beads. I wish I could give you guys a tutorial on it. It is so pretty with the lights in it. The materials are beads, starburst and the three prong ones (I don’t know the name of them), safety pins, and craft wire.
Here is my table. I love the round ornaments in that candle holder. You can’t really tell, but that red container is felt and has a really intricate cut pattern in the front of it. It’s holding all the cloth napkins we use. Yes we use cloth napkins, I just like it better and there are no children in my house, so I don’t have the much laundry and stuff as it is.
Please ignore the clutter, I was trying to get the stockings and hangers. Plus the plate and bells in the middle. Those are were brought back from Nicaragua by my mom-in-law for me. They depict the manger scene.
Snowflakes that I put on my curtains. I just like them 🙂
Just a pretty one with all the lights turned off. Hope you are having a great time decorating your house!
