I do have to admit that having pinterest as a go to website for creative ideas, makes me rethink some of my placements of decorations. I also re-created two wreaths for the house, and three light fixtures. All which were taken from pinterest. Chandelier idea came from a blog you can check out.
Also, John finally received his alligator skin from the taxidermist. I loved it so much that I don't have the heart to get it made into anything. I'm using it as a runner on my dining room table.
I also wanted to get my stockings looking full and picture perfect so I enlisted the help of the internet and found this website with great advice.
Look how nice they turned out. Still working on the twisting as you can see.
I worked too hard on this wreath to not hang it up so I placed it in our kitchen window and I have to say it looks great. I just need my honey to run an extension cord around the window so that we can light it.
I usually have a tree on the upstairs landing that overlooks the foyer. This tree has all my kids special ornaments and hand made crafts from the elementary years. This year I decided not to put it up. So I brought down all their hand crafted ornaments plus the "baby's first Christmas" ones and placed it by my front door on a wooden table top tree. I'm still working on that one but wanted to blog about it so I have a reference point of what I did this year.
Merry Christmas and I hope that this helps with your Holiday Decorations! Or makes you so tired as my friend Ferne said and go have a drink for me. I will be joining you in spirit!
