What a Difference a Weekend Makes

I think calling myself out her on the blog was motivating. This weekend I got in gear and did what decorating we plan to do this year. I think it turned out lovely, just enough. My biggest anxiety this year was about the fact that I will have to take it all down and pack it up in a few short weeks. I know, lame. I will say I’ve heard lots of others say they just can’t get in the spirit this year. Don’t know what’s up with that. Either way, I think I really need to sort through all my decorations and reorganize things before I put it away this year. Ugh. I don’t enjoy that part.

But I’m just not going to think about that right now. I’m going to enjoy for now.

Baskets of ornaments are always festive.

I didn’t pull out any of our traditional ornaments for the tree. We bought some new teal balls and pulled the purple ones out of the ornament bin. I wanted garland, but wasn’t finding anything I liked. Until I stumbled on this.

I just love it! It’s actually yarn with pom poms! How fun is that? Simple and a little funky.

I have lots of nativities. I only put out three this year. This traditional one.

This one is the my oldest. It’s been through a lot. And I love it.

I worked a little magic on the frame from this post. I think it turned out pretty cute.

I really love the aqua/teal. It makes me happy.

And of course, I did some fun things on the mantel!

I love the one red ornament.

The only down side….I have this to clean up!

The whole dining room table covered in stuff. Ugh! The remnants of my creativity.

And I might have a slight addiction to ribbon…

There are worse things to be addicted to:).

    This blog cracked me up…we are sooo related. Teal, ribbon addictions, dining table full of Christmas decorations..the list goes on. I’m starting to feel normal now.
