So, below are pictures of my decorating. It wore me out this year, but I’m happy with it. You will see that I spend time on Twitter for ideas….
I love this tree. As soon as I walked into this house, I knew I had to buy it for the nine foot window that is perfect for a nine foot tree!
The forest, as Cavan calls it, is in my rec room. I had put up a few trees one year and Cavan commented on the forest. That threw out the gauntlet of challenge, so now I put out all of my trees. There are actually 25 here. I don’t know if you can see them all or not, but it includes the Christmas tree night light.
The light fixture in the dining room, I think really needs to have the ornaments dangle lower, but they were Martha Stewart ornaments, so I just went with the ribbons they had this year.
The dining room window, I hung some ornaments on. I was working on random lengths, but wasn’t as successful as I had hoped.
The kitchen idea I got from Twitter and would have done more cupboard doors, but I ran out of ribbon. Next year. I think I will go with plain red velvet ribbon.
Then, I decorated the rail around the stairs. I had the poinsettia string from years before, the string of little stockings from last year and then, from a Twitter idea, I added the presents. I think it looks pretty good, although the poinsettia string doesn’t stay quite where I want it. Oh well, I like it anyway.
So, have a merry Christmas everyone. I don’t know if I will fit in a blog Christmas Eve or not, but I will try. God bless!
