Most of my Christmas decorations are up, so today I’m going to show you a small glimpse of them. I’m still tweaking things, and, of course, doing a few crafts (I’ll be sharing those with you over the next few weeks).
Once inside, you’ll find some greenery in the foyer.
In my dining room, I hung a new wreath from my chalkboard. I found the cute plaid ribbon at Marshalls!
The tree is up and decorated in the living room.
And, the Polar Express train we bought the kids last year is running full steam ahead.
She’s seven years old now and is totally okay with Santa and this little guy — she absolutely believes in his magic!
Last weekend we had my nieces over and the kids teamed up to decorate these gingerbread houses in a hot and heated competition! Their grandparents were the judges. Guess who won? They all did. 🙂
(And, yes, you’re not seeing things…one is lighter than the other. We never got around to decorating the house we bought last year, so we kept it and made it this year. Look at how much that gingerbread faded!)
I love this bucket I found at Marshalls a couple of weeks ago when I went shopping with my mom while she was here. I couldn’t resist it even though the last thing I need is another Christmas decoration! I filled it with berries, greenery and huge pine cones I found along the street near my in-laws house.
I also have a thing for plates and found this a couple of years ago at Sur la Table when I was in Phoenix visiting my brother. It’s placed above my stove for a little Christmas spirit in the kitchen.
That’s my mini tour for today. I hope you enjoyed it!
Please share some of your holiday home pictures on my Facebook page — I’d love to see what’s going on at your house!
