I just wanted to share a few images of our Christmas tree and such. This year, except for the red bows on the garland, we went with a simple white theme. We don't have a big house or a lot of decorations but I so enjoy what we do have!
For the first time in the 20 years my husband and I have been married we finally have a real tree, a Concolor Fir. The artificial tree we have is so large that I really didn't want to have to remove furniture to put it up, so, we looked everywhere trying to find a slender artificial white tree like Jesse's but there wasn't anything available. As we strolled the field trying to find the perfect tree, my husband thought all the trees my daughter and I kept picking out were to small. Even though we brought a tape measure with us he just wasn't convinced. I told him it's going to look a lot bigger once we get it home. Wouldn't you know as soon as he and my daughter brought the tree in he said, "This tree just got a whole lot bigger!" LOL!
Now that we've bought a real tree I'm not sure if we'll go back!
I'm loving this ornament! It's a teardrop shaped glass ornament that I found at JC Penneys this year. My husband and I scoured all the trees they had trying to scoff up every single one we could find. Normally they're $4 but were on sale for 50% off. The glass reflects the light and just add a nice sparkle to the tree.
Again, another ornament from JC Penneys, purchased a few years ago. And again, I bought every single one I could find! They weren't cheap, even at 50% off, but they're good quality and will last forever.
On a whim my husband started adding plumes from the enormous ornamental grass we have growing out by our mailbox. I like the soft look!
Ooooo, yummy! A Homegoods find!
My favorite place to shop ; )
Santa's sleigh has held our Christmas card for years
I hope you enjoyed the short tour around the tree. There is a bit more decor on the other side of the room but maybe I'll save that for another day.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by! I do hope the season is not to stressful and you've been able to accomplish some shopping. Me, not so much on the shopping.
