It's a WEEK until Christmas and I am NO where near ready!!!
If I could just have a remote control for life I would have to hit that rewind button...But, needless to say I did get a little decorating done with the help of my hubby...Actually he pulled everything out and I had no choice but to decorate...LOL
Since we downsized this year I didn't put a lot of decorations out...It's that claustrophobic thing!!
Some come on in to my home!!
I live in the south and it really wasn't snowing...Love Picasa ;-)
My problem was finding a spot for the tree in our cozy lil home...and after much deliberating (about a month) I believe this was my only option... Now I have to decorate the WHOLE Tree if it sits here...you can see it from the front entrance and the living room...
Breathe, Denyse!!! You got this!!
(Yep I talk to myself all the time and proud of it)
This involved finding a temporary home for an end table, a plant and sliding the love seat down...All this for a tree!! Stressed me out!!!
Now at this point we hope the tree fits...
I guess it's time to get it decorated (It sat like this for 3 days) I know I know...Some days I do need a swift kick right in the back side!!
Here are a few of my favorite things..
My angel sits atop the tree watching over us!!!
The stockings are hung by the chimney with care!!
My "Willow Tree" Nativity seen (Christmas gift from hubby 2 yrs ago) is all snuggled under the tree...
Every year I try to pick up a new ornament...I got these cute lil sparklers at Kohl's for $1.49 a piece...I call that a Christmas jackpot!!!
Added some snowman cheer!!
And, it wouldn't be Christmas without "Santa"...I love my old time Santa's...Here are a few of my favorites...
My decorative holiday throw pillows and blankets...
This one sits in a rocker that my daughter who is going to be 26 sat in when she was 2...and he rocks by the fireplace!!
And, this Santa hangs by the front door and annoys the hubby...It plays Christmas music every time you walk past it...(I only annoyed him for a few hours with it than shut it off...lol)
Speaking of hubby...I bet you didn't know I was married to a DIY'er (Well neither did I)...I came home to a wreath hanging on my front door (WE DON"T HAVE A WREATH)...I was like "What the heck, you seriously went and bought a wreath...WE have no extra money"..
Well let me step back because hubby found the plain wreath with our Christmas stuff and added lights and found a bag of Christmas decor and decorated the wreath himself...
YES!! I was literally speechless!!
Don't mess with my hubby!!!
(makes me laugh every time I look at it)
We went from this to this!!
