It’s Beginning to Look A Little Like Christmas

I decorated for Christmas Thursday evening and Friday of last week.  I still have a few ideas I want to incorporate if I decide I’m motivated enough.  If not, then what I have done will be enough.  I’m planning to reveal all of the decor next Monday, but thought I’d give you a sneak peek today.  You will notice touches of lights, silver, old fashioned.

Keep in mind that we have not had sunshine for a few days and a lot of the pictures were taken Friday evening.  Also, I am not a professional photo taker.

I hope you come back next Monday for the full tour.

The wrapping paper has no real significance – they are leftovers from previous years and are now back in the crate. This picture is an in progress shot.

This is a card I found while going through items from an estate.  It spoke to me so I have incorporated it into a tablescape.  You may notice a few touches of pink in my Living room decor this year.  Stay tuned.  Over the past three to four years I have found myself drawn to pink in small doses. Go figure!

Lights showing up around my window and incorporated as part of the curtain this year.  In the picture below you will see a little pair of crocheted slippers.  They were made by my Aunt Carolyn and provide a happy little memory of her when I look at them.

Last year I did not do a tree.  This year I graduated up to a small four foot tree in our workroom.  I love trees, but don’t think they are always necessary to having beautiful decor.  Our main tree is a little the worse for wear and due to the need to breath we don’t do live trees.  I’m not ready yet, to shop for a new tree, it’s just not that high a priority for me.  So we have a little tree with an old-fashioned, use what you have, eclectic flair.

A glimpse of our mantel.  I’m not quite through tweaking it and this may be where a little more pink will make an appearance.  I did use some twine and silver balls to make a little garland to hang above the mantel. It is not a completely original idea as several bloggers have done something similar this year.  Nothing is ever really new.  Just the same thing, said my way.

My little white nativity that I missed last year.  It was in storage.  I love the simplicity of white and lights and a little sparkle.  which is the look I’m going for in the living room.

If there is an overall message that I want my Christmas decor to say to you, it is peace.

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of what Christmas looks like at our house.

Christmas grace to you,

Teresa

  1. I also found my little ceramic nativity that I kept out for several years. It’s back out now for the foreseeable future. Mine has a touch of blue and green. I don’t remember where I got it? A gift from you by any chance?

    1. I don’t think so, I’d have to see a picture to see if I recognized. Not sure where I got mine either – I may have purchased it or it may have been a gift. Yes, I actually have a little tree this year and did not forfeit. I figured after six years without a tree I should start small and gradually build up to a big tree. 🙂
