Christmas 2013

 

Well here it is December 21st and I finally finished my Christmas Decorating :)

I think I changed the mantle at least 5 times!

I LOVE fresh garland and I put it everywhere!

I removed the bins/crates from this basket and placed a few wintery items inside.

The cute tarnished brass tree I snagged at the Goodwill yesterday for only .99 cents!

I made a makeshift table out of this table.

And this round gold mirror.

I wanted to add something simple so of course I went straight to Pinterest and found the perfect idea.

Bowls + Moss + Candles

I already had all of the supplies on hand!

I put some sand in the containers and placed the moss over the top and stuck some candle sticks in!

BAM!

I am wondering how long they will last before Abby gets to them!

I changed up the chalk wall as well.

I also painted this old frame we had on hand gold, cut some chalkboard to fit and included a little fresh garland on the top.

These plates I removed from the old chalk wall.

I included some red velvet ribbon bows and hung them along with a couple of silver pieces and some garland to the top of the window.

Our plan is to find more plates/pieces and fill the space up but for now this is what I have come up with.

A fresh evergreen wreath along with some old ice skates and this knitted throw are the perfect addition to this old ladder.

The colored candles I picked up at Yarbro’s Antique Mall for a heck of a deal!

70% off at Tis The Season’s clearance booth!

I tacked some red velvet ribbon to the lamp shade with a hot glue gun.

And the tree skirt is an actual skirt from my closet :)

I made the flag bunting garland out of old book pages.

And the “Move Mountains” ornament I received free with my Miss Mustard Seed Order.

This swag was originally on the mantle but I decided it looked better here on the buffet in the Dining Room.

We made some barn board Christmas trees for our booth and of course I had to keep one for myself!

I also added some evergreen to the chandelier and included some ribbon, beads and ornaments.

I did not do much in our bedroom but I did add a little bit of bling to the fireplace.

And this is as far as I got in the hearth room.

Two trees!

Yep!

That’s it!

Two Trees!

:)

But they are super cute trees!

I kept the front porch simple as well.

And last but not least a little love for the mailbox.
