Days 8 & 9

So here it is all decorated. I'm sure I could do more, but for now, this is enough. I've realized that I'm going to have to hit the after-Christmas sales this year now that I have space to display things. And of course, we still have days of Christmas crafts ahead of us:)
Some people have the perfect looking Christmas tree. My tree is perfect for me. It's a whirl of old (and I mean old) and new ornaments with splashes of crazy color. Brianna was the main tree decorator this year, so three cheers for her!
and no--it is not an optical illusion. My tree is totally crooked. I wish I wish I knew how to take pictures that really showed how everything looks in real life. It is seriously sparkly..but no sparkles in these lame shots:(So you might say this is just an ordinary glass vase of ornaments. Not so, my dear! This is an ordinary glass vase of ornaments with a vintage ribbon that I adore around it! Truly one of my favorite Goodwill finds ever. My mind has been swirling with ideas of things I can wrap it around!

I posted this shot because you can see the coffee table color really well. It was the ugliest thing ever left here by the previous family and Aaron refinished it. He's amazing!

My favorite thing on here, beside the nativity that my Aunt Barbara gave me, is the White Christmas record album.

cute message Brianna put up in her hallway...

and I am done.

I love your living room - the decorations look fahbulous. And the blue color complements your couch so much better than the green did - it looks so great. I want to come hang out! Maybe soon . . ?!

Beautiful. You are in your element here, I can tell. Because everything is simply beautiful.

The poster in the hallway is the greatest thing that I have ever seen in my life. That kid is a genius!
