I found some great additions for my tree today, and some ribbon so I can make a new bow(ok so Mom can make me a new bow!). I worked on that for a bit. I will show you all pictures of Christmas Tree 2.0 when I am done.
I don't do the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. I don't know why, but I am drawn to purples, pinks, lime greens, and aqua. I started out somewhat traditional in my kitchen, but that too is changing.Here's the 'Ol Rusty cart. I just love it. It comes in handy and I can dress it up pretty darn cute (or maybe I am partial?).
I bought these present boxes at the Dollar General. They really have some cute Christmas decorations!
The chandelier also got a little Christmas makeover. Nothing is safe!
This hutch is built it. It comes in handy. All of these Santa's came from my mom. She painted some of them. I just stick them in and on this hutch.
Topiary 2.0! I added some purple feathers, I just couldn't help it! I used ornaments on the candle holders and added some feathers to the base.
When I was in college I bought these set of plates. There are 8 of them...do you know why there are 8? Vixen is your first of 8 clues! I absolutely love them!
I use these gift boxes on my table as well. I usually place them on the center of the plate. However, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, Cupid, Donner & Blitzen are too cute to cover up!Rudolph has his own little place!
Well that is part of the kitchen. There isn't much to see on the other half except for dirty dishes, and who wants to see that?
I will try to post the outside decorations tomorrow. It has been raining here since yesterday, so they may not look as nice as they would on a sunny day!
It is beginning to get chilly here...and I love that. Most people here HATE cold weather. I on the other hand love it! We have had several hot Christmas' and they are just no fun! I personally don't like wearing short sleeves at Christmas. If I lived in Hawaii then that would be fine....but I don't! I would LOOOOOOVE some snow, and I mean more than 1"! I know all of you up north probably think I am nuts for wanting snow!
A few years ago, it snowed here on Christmas Day. I remember my Dad just standing out in the yard staring up at the sky. I wasn't really sure what was wrong with him. I just watched him, and he said that it hadn't snowed on Christmas Day since he was 5 years old (or somewhere around that age). I realized at that moment, we never really grow up. The same things that amazed us as kids, still amaze us as adults. There is a child in all of us, and sometimes we have to let it out to play.
