Our tree…with the “controversial” bow on top. Tucker was really upset that I didn’t use a star. He talked about it for days.;)
The Christmas Card Tree…one of my favorite things about decorating for Christmas. This is just the beginning…by Christmas the tree is completely full and I love it!!
I found the JOY in the dollar bins at Target. Always love finding those little treasures!
These vases are sitting on my kitchen table. I wasn’t really sure if they would be safe there, but so far so good. I am currently in love with the red and turquoise combination…can you tell? :) (The pedestal vases were a great idea from my sister in law Marie…they are just dollar store vases hot glued on top of dollar store candle holders. Such a great idea!)
My in-laws give us a snowflake ornament every year. They are so pretty and some of my favorite ornaments. I wanted to display them in a special way this year and really like how they look on this little dress form. My sparkly red birdies are from the Dollar Tree. There seems to be a Dollar Store theme to my Christmas decorating this year.
I have had these two trees from Hobby Lobby for years. I love putting them on the buffet in my kitchen at Christmas. I had high hopes to make an advent calendar this year, but I ended up just shelling out the $25 and I bought one at Target. I love it and it was worth every penny because I decided that my time was worth the $25. ;)
It has been a crazy couple of weeks. A large women’s event at church, a birthday party, the Christmas musical, a luncheon for 100 teachers/staff that I was in charge of (it is my PTA position this year), class parties…and two cases of strep throat. I am really looking forward to next week when we can just relax and enjoy some time at home. I just have to make it through the next two days!! ;)
