Holiday decorations were definitely in their beginning stages this year. I didn't have the energy to get everything done, but I know that things will progress in the years to come. I am going to document the beginning so I can look back and smile at our first Christmas in this house.
I love my eBay Santa:
This ceiling window is perfect for my wooden trees:
I had envisioned an earthy fabric wrap beneath my white Christmas tree:
I just love my yellow entry rug. I also spray painted three, black twig coat racks (my sister saw some similar ones in a local shop and gave me the idea - so I went onto Amazon.com and got them half priced) white for guest coats. I love our lit up Rudolph on our porch, but Andrew calls him Christmas crap. We need to make him a red nose:
|P.S. Blake keeps printing out UW pictures and taping them to our windows.
Two out of three village houses remain. The boys broke one last year. The Santa is a preschool creation from yesteryear:
And our tree. I had high hopes of spray painting some white feathers silver. I was going to gather three feathers (some white, some silver) and arrange them in mini bundles all throughout the tree. I've got the spray paint, feathers, and 365+ days to get them done before next year!:
It is cozy enough and now it is time to forget about decorating and get busy baking.
