I say I am finished, then I tweak something....this week will be more tweaking, I am sure. My gosh I am so slow this year. Do you have decorations that you can't remember where you bought it ? Or how long you have had it? These Santa blocks are old but where did I get them.? LOL
If you see piles of newspapers and books...well at times that is how we live. I have no formal living room...every room is our home is a lived in space. :):) Wow, some of my photos look wonky.
The tree is done, the mantle also. I did a bit more here and there , outside.
I used the honey combed trees from last year, mixed with pine cones and two little fake greenery trees. The deer are stocking hangers.
I actually like all the trees scattered along the length of the mantle.
In the office I have some of my favorite Christmas books stacked . I made some paperback novel trees a couple years ago and used them with the books.
This is the top of my sewing machine. I added plaid bows to the trees after this photo. That's the tweaking , I am talking about. :):)
I started with my Charlie Brown corner. The picture of Layla when she had very little hair and her head looks as round as Charlie's. An ornament my daughter Liz got me last year is on top of a vase. I am thinking of hanging it from a twig in the vase...you know a twig that looks like the tree from the cartoon. One of my favorite books , "A Charlie Brown Christmas".
On the shelf in the dining room. I have a few framed small pictures of our town, that I love....at this time of year I prop Christmas pictures of family in front of them. Yes, I will be tweaking this for sure. Need to put my little pitchers away.
Late afternoon, it started to rain, then a bit of ice in that rain. Next it was snowing. It did cover the ground and was melted this morning. I know it's winter, but I am still not ready for it. The beautiful long fall we had , has spoiled me. I do not want to see snow. LOL.
Wishing all of you a safe new week. XO
