Only a few more days and Christmas will be here. I am pretty much ready. This post is a mini Christmas house tour. A recap on how I decorated my house for Christmas this year. Some photos you have already seen, some are new. I didn’t reinvent the wheel – just tweaked how I decorated last year by adding a few new turquoise accents to the mix.
I hung an antique ornament from the chandy in my dining room. It is really old and the top is broken. I love the shape – perfect drop to hang by itself so I used a dot of hot glue to attach the cap so I could hang it. If you look closely – you can see the wire I used attach the glued on cap to the bottom crystal on the chandelier.
I just started working on the table setting – will have more to show you in a few days.
The tree is not completely decorated yet – waiting for Kelly and Mandy to get home – they like to help decorate it. I did put on a few base ornaments and used the leftover pom-pom yarn that I used to make snowflakes window treatments last year, as garland.
If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, then you may have already seen Nutley. We don’t have an Elf on a Shelf in my house – but a mouse about the house. He gets moved all around. I bought him at a local retirement community craft fair. An elderly gentleman made him. We usually put him in places where a certain cat named Trax won’t get him.
I use traditional Christmas colors outside.
Now that the decorating is done – I can concentrate on wrapping. Once that is completed – time to sit back and enjoy the season. Thanks for coming along on my Christmas house tour.
