Just thought I'd share a few shots of the living room, decked out in it's holiday wares :)
These photos do not EVEN do the tree justice... it is so much prettier in person. It's a 9' pre-lit tree... and there are actually enough lights on it :) Usually, the pre-lit ones just don't have enough. Having the lights already done saved me at least a half a day in decorating.
This is one of my favorite ornaments... square & orange... me likey. My colors for winter decorating are: copper, purple, violet, sage, lime & just a bit o' orange. No traditional green, red & gold for me! No sir-ree! I do have a few ornies that do not fit into the scheme, but MUST be on the tree... you have to look hard for them :)
One is an old clothespin reindeer with googlie eyes, pom pom nose & felt ivy that I made when I was in either 2nd or 5th grade... can't remember. I can't believe none of the elements have fallen off yet... gotta love Elmer's glue, right?!
I finally paired down all of my winter holiday decorations! I didn't do any garland & lights around the half walls & banister this year, and Igor isn't decorated either. I LOVE how I've got the Halloween & Christmas-y stuff mixed together... very... ummmm... me :) AND, I went from six of those gi-freakin-normous storage tubs down to three!
Tomorrow, I'll have a sneekie peekie card for you... remember... the new Serendipity Magalogue will be coming soon!
What do you think?
