This year I really took to the whole "less is more" mantra. I was really excited to decorate for Christmas and then realized that as I was rummaging through the Christmas boxes in the garage, I realized I only had about a handful of decorations. It seems that I had been weeding most of my stuff out over the last few years. Part of me was just over all the "stuff" I seemed to have, and this goes for just about all of my decor, not just the Christmas stuff.
In the living room I switched up my pillows, using a mix of Ikea striped pillows, and sewing myself a new one using this fabric. The white sweater pom-pom pillow I bought last year from Target and the leopard one I made a few years back. The coffee table decor I kept simple by adding a few bright bulbs, easy-peasy, right?
My mosaic tree and ornament disco ball are back on top of the bookcase, where my favorite Christmas decoration, the Nativity sits. I like it this year especially because I think the black really makes for a dramatic backdrop.
Balls in a bowl. Yep. Call it a day.
Past Christmas photos and Santa photos are out for the kids to see, Lizzie especially loves seeing herself and her brother with Santa. I'm really excited to see our collection grow through the years.
And this year I succomed to the little tinsel Christmas tree for the kids. I knew it was going to happen sooner or later, so I caved. It's pretty adorable and I guess I should count myself lucky that Lizzie hasn't asked to put presents under it yet.
Thanks for stopping by,
Merry Christmas friends!!
