I’m a little behind in putting up pics of my Christmas decorations this year. The decorations have been up since Thanksgiving but I’ve just not gotten around to posting anything about it. I thought I better do it now before I take everything back down.
I went simple with the table this year. When I need to move it for dinner, just grab and go.
As much of a pain as the stairway garland is to put up, I’m always so glad I went to the effort when it’s all done. It’s one of my favorite parts of my decorations.
Santa is tucked back under the cupboards.
Mr. Snowman hangs out on the end of the island. When we built the house, DH & I went round and round whether we should put in an island or not. I’m so glad I WON! I don’t ever want a house without one again. I love it.
I ended up with this funky colored rooster after my niece’s wedding late this summer. Every time I looked at him sitting on the counter I smiled. He’s just plain fun and I couldn’t bear to put him away so I stuck him up on top of the cupboards with some greens for Christmas. He seems to like it up there.
This was it for a tree for us this year. We always had a real tree until a few years ago when I got the notion to get an artificial one. I absolutely hated it. Not that it was a bad tree but when you’ve had a real tree for 44 years of your life, it just wasn’t the same. I sold it on Craigslist this year and went with only our smaller trees. I kind of liked it. I might get a real at some point again but for now this works well for us.
I hope you enjoyed your tour!
