I thought I'd show you a few of our Christmas decorations. We haven't even gotten everything out of the attic yet; at this point, I'm not sure we will. But this is what I've done so far, so here's a bit of a tour. Above is the mantle over our fireplace. This is essentially the same as last year. I added an additional ball garland, but otherwise it's the same as before. I made the wreath last year to match; it's still one of my favorites!
The fun gnome and mushroom ornaments I told you about previously are now residing on a feather tree in the kitchen. Also in the kitchen is our Mickey Mouse gingerbread cookie advent calendar:
I love this advent calendar! I got this as a gift from my parents after we took a huge, multi-generational trip to Disney World during Christmas time. This was in the window of a store there, and I just about had a heart attack when I saw it. I'm so glad that Mom got it for me; every time I see it I think of that trip and how magical it was to be at Disney surrounded by Christmas decorations and music.
Above is the entry way. I love the pink/gold glitter trees! I found the tablecloth on Ebay (I have it folded in half to drape over the console table) -- the workmanship on this tablecloth is amazing to me:
I made a wreath to go with this grouping, but I'm still not sure that I like it. I think it looks kind of like a sea urchin:
Finally, I have a weakness for vintage felt Christmas things, so we've got them all over the house:
Our Elf on the Shelf (who the girls have named "Minty") ended up here yesterday morning:
That's just a little bit of what Christmas looks like around here this year! I hope that you are having a joyful holiday!
