Show me Christmas: DECORATIONS!

... busy!!

I really wanted to link up today.....so I was taking these pictures at 10:30 last night.... right after I was making belts and key chains to fulfill etsy orders, and prior to that was at the mall Christmas shopping with my Dad, and before that was finishing up mailing out my Christmas cards! Oh, December!

Basically that means, don't judge my sooc/unedited pictures! I am trying to get it all done.

Here is a sampling of some of my fave Christmas decorations in our home:
First my tree..... I love how fat it is!
My table. E calls it the "museum" because I told him that for this month every time he uses a red plate he has to wash it, dry it, and put it back on the table! Haha

Don't you love these little cocktail napkins. You can turn them over depending on if you are feeling naughty or nice!

I also love Christmas cookie jars. I am not sure where I got this one.... but I think it is so cute!

For some reason I can't get over advent calendars. I still buy one for myself, and for E, (i'm not so good at sharing) every year.... even if the candy is tiny and barely tastes like chocolate. I might even still buy one for myself when I have kids.... hmmm. Also, please note the amaryllis in the middle that is NOT growing. Grrr!!

Here is a little snippet of my living room decor. I made the glittery trees on the left earlier in the month. I think they came out pretty good... but ugh, glitter is so annoying! It got everwhere. If you do glitter anything, however, I highly recommend spraying them with a clear acrylic sealer. It made a huge difference!

I hope you enjoyed my small tour! I can't wait to see all of yours! Once again December is rushing by and I still have a few projects/decorations to add.....if I get them done in time! But right now it is time to enjoy the hot cocoa that E just made me, get a blanket, lay on the couch, and watch the lights twinkle! :)

HaPpY hOLiDaYs!!!
