|Our Christmas Tree|
I let the girls decorate it and all the ornaments were only on the bottom half. Ha! So after they went to bed I went through and evened everything out. They never even noticed. I decided to keep the ornaments fun this year. Most are some felt and wooden ones I picked up at Target a few years back, with some homemade and non-breakable keepsakes thrown in. This way I am not worrying about the girls getting a little handsy with them. The colors are fun and make me happy. The star on top I picked up at a thrift store last year.
|Christmas chair love|
|Christmas card holder|
I put our Christmas card holder in the hallway and it is the first thing past the front room with the Christmas tree. The girls and I love to see all of our friends and family throughout the day.
I changed out the vignettes from autumn but left the overall layout of bins, books, etc. One space has a small fake evergreen and a cheese cover-turned-cloche (garage sale find) filled with red ornaments.
Hands down my favorite decoration this year: my own Rudolph, courtesy of a red pom-pom attached to my deer canvas in the living room.
And a few final touches:
|A special message on our chalkboard|
|Stockings hung with care|
|Keep Calm and Merry On|
|A little Christmas bling by the kitchen sink|
So there you have it, our little slice of Christmas. I pinned several other really great ideas to my Christmas board on Pinterest, so I already have a head start for next year!
