Happy Monday everyone!
I hope you all had a good weekend! Ours included Topher’s office Christmas party, which included a murder mystery that we all took part in. Nothing says Christmas like a little dead body.
The unnamed child went to her first dance club … which made me a little nervous. She and her friends are only 18, which means they can’t drink, but it doesn’t stop the drunk 40 year olds there from hitting on her. All-in-all, they learned some country two step and some line dances, and I stayed up way too late waiting-up for her.
Between the Christmas party and waiting up, there wasn’t a whole lot of sleep had this weekend.
As you all know, Christmas is my favorite holiday. Topher questions me every year as I pull out the decorations a little bit earlier than the year before. I figure if it’s what you love, and it makes you happy when it surrounds you, than enjoy it as long as you can.
Let’s start out with the tree. This year, I added a bit more turquoise to the tree along with the silver and white. I thought about replacing the angel that we have had forever, but the unnamed child put her foot down. She’s a big one for tradition, and anytime I try to change things up, as far as holiday decor goes, I am definitely met with resistance.
Little Charlie man had to get his glamour shot on!
Here is my newly painted mantel, all decked out in pink glamour. I’ve never used pink in my holiday decor before, but I’m glad I did!
I made my little sugar house wreath with an old wreath I picked up from a yard sale last summer.
I threw a scarf I used to wear on my little side table along with some Christmas decor I had in storage.
I used another blanket scarf for the coffee table. I used some vintage bottles I found at a yard sale and topped them with ornaments.
The whole set up didn’t cost me a dime. I simply shopped my home.
That’s all I have for you today!
Tune in later this week and I will have a Christmas project as well as two other parts of the house you haven’t seen yet!
