Monday, December 15th, 2014

I am not sure about you, but I have little time or desire right now to think of anything but Christmas:

Christmas Decorating At The Condo

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

I just wanted to share my little condo decorating for Christmas this year:

Nothing special or fancy. This table was decorated around my pretty Christmas cactus that is blooming now (upper left of photo below):

I just wrote a couple weeks ago how I do not do theme Christmas trees, but I found I picked up a lot of turquoise ornaments at the end of last years season sales, so I thought why not give it a try:

I love it! Here is a clever idea for a Christmas display:

Take a tall vase, fill with silver tinsel and balls and mix in some colored balls:

Super easy and original!

How are you doing with your Christmas decorating? Do you go all out every year? Or do you find yourself taking out less decorations each year? I am definitely in the lesser group. I still enjoy decorating but have toned it down a bit each year. How about you?

It takes a little planning to put something together as beautiful as these:

I’m sure you could also set a beautiful table after you made a list of what you would need.

I love so many of these vignettes, but where would you ever put the food?

A Relaxing, Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

I hope you all had a wonderful, long Thanksgiving weekend. Mine was great. Wonderful food, I started my Christmas shopping, visited with friends and family and best of all- I had time to read and just relax.

I wanted to have my Christmas decorating done this weekend in NH, but that is not going to happen. And I am not going to stress over it. Instead I spent time looking at Holiday ideas:

This is THE best bow making tutorial I have ever seen. I love big beautiful bows and now I can make my own.

I love to make wreaths each year because they are so simple and beautiful:

Every year I say I am going to try to make a boxwood tree:

I have always loved them. I think decorating with boxwood is my favorite Christmas decoration which I wrote about here. It is expensive to buy the tree already made, but they do last a long time. This is pretty too:

I have never gone crazy with a theme decorating our Christmas tree. It has always been simple:

Most are handmade ornaments the kids made over the years:

My treetop is always blessed with an angel I made with my Grandma Mimi years ago:

Makes me smile every time I walk into the room!

Look at all the snow we had from Wednesday’s storm:

Have you started decorating for Christmas? Do you have any special projects you would like to do? I am really looking forward to this year’s Christmas because we are all going to be together! Yay!
