We have done stuff around the house.
Walls are painted. New lamps. Art on walls.
Here's the deal:
Both of my computers are completely full. Meaning, there is no memory space for me to upload pictures. I delete stuff, but somehow still no room. This makes it frustrating as I like to share the going-ons here.
So I am feeling grinchy because I just took pictures of our holiday decor. Quick and easy. Then I tried to load them onto my computer. For AN HOUR. I got rid of over 100 pictures. Plenty of space to upload twenty or so shots.
So after much stress, here are some tree pictures. Which started out as fun, but now I am ticked.
I am going to do what I usually do. Highlight some new favorites. And sometimes some old favorites.
|Crate and Barrel, Glass, Love!|
|Handmade by a friend of my mom.|
|Reminded me of Jeremiah. Crate and Barrel.|
|Crate and Barrel. Glass.|
While I like the star on my mantel, I am not loving the mantel decor itself. I think I need to move some things that are on the right. I've got some ideas.
|Any extra ornaments always find a place in a container.|
|The bottom of this lamp from Salvation Army is open, so I slipped some ornaments in there, too.|
Have you met the pig? I found him over a year ago. I love him. We don't eat pig or cow here, and I take an odd delight at having this little porker hanging around the kitchen. I have a bird that is the same style, but he has yet to find a home on the walls.
The front tree has the same theme as last year - metals. Golds, bronzes, silvers, whites, and ivories.
|The little birdhouse is new. Clearance from Target.|
|I actually bought this at Jo-Ann's. Not on clearance, just liked it.|
|World Market, this year. He was just too cute to pass up.|
|Glass ball from Crate and Barrel.|
Maddie has done her best to destroy Christmas this year. She only goes after the big tree, which is awesome, because most of the breakable ornaments hang on this beautiful beast. So far she has only destroyed the one bird, which was felt, not at all breakable. Odd. The tree looked better the first few days, before she began climbing it. There will be some rebending of branches come January.
I guess that's about it. Friends, I hope that you all have trees that are withstanding children and pets.
