I have to be honest, I didn’t go all out like I usually do on decorating for Christmas. I don’t know if it’s because Christmas sort of snuck up on me or because my son is moving around and teething right now so I really didn’t have the time to? I did at least put up two small artificial trees that I got on sale after Christmas last year at Home Depot and a few other pretty things.
Here’s the larger of the two with pre-lit branches and was super easy to setup.
The smaller one is bare but I hung an ornament my sister made for me to use at our wedding reception that I keep floating around the house because I love it so much! Behind it is the painting I did recently while attending a canvas class. I am no artist so I thought it turned out pretty good!
One of the pre-lit garland I have hanging around is on the mantel. It is very simple and next year I hope to add a lot more to this area!
Another item my sister gave me was this adorable Marine Toys for Tots - Christmas Village piece. I love it because of the cute bears and my husband is a Marine Veteran.
This is my son’s first Christmas stocking made by my former supervisor. She calls him her “grandson”. She said that there were 80 pieces for her to sew so it took a while! It means a lot that she would make that for him. It is very special!
My mother-in-law gave us this neat lamp that is tall, can be indoor or outdoor, blows snow and plays music!
I also wanted to share with you these awesome soaps that I found at Bath and Body Works (one of my addictions) that smell like trees! Winter is more feminine and the Fresh Balsam is more masculine so even the guys in your house will use it too.
Thank you all for reading and I hope to hear from you! Have a happy and safe holiday season!
