Christmas…love the season!

December 18, 2013 by 6 Comments

This year we’ve decided to keep everything simple and put up a small table top Christmas tree decorated with family favorites.  Hubby loves to see favorite homemade ornaments on it, the kind our kids made years ago mixed in with ornaments our grandkids surprised us with in recent years.  That has always been the theme of our tree, large or small …homemade ornaments with a hint of sparkle and glitter.  It’s a very ordinary tree but very special to us.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right?

Tabletop Christmas tree

Talking about Christmas trees, I tweaked my mantel again!  My friend Martina from Northern Nesting  inspired me with her Christmas decor in her beautiful dining room. I loved the tree garland she used and looked for one at our Target.  There was one left on the shelf, guess it was meant to be.  I had a special place in mind for that cute thing.

The mantel looks more finished now with the added dash of color and whimsey. Love it!

How are you doing? Are you still decorating or tweaking your Christmas decor?

Thank you so much for stopping by!

    You’re right, Moni. One of the best things about Christmas is re-discovering those wonderful ornaments that hold so many precious memories and bring back times that are long over. Your tree is sooo pretty and I really like you tree garland on the mantle. Have a blessed Christmas!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
