More Christmas....



Thank you so much for all your kind words about
my understated Christmas decorating....it warmed my
heart!  It is sometimes hard opening blogs
and feeling like you just don't measure up....
So often I find myself thinking, "Look, she had time to
bake and build a gingerbread house, home-school her
seven children, make her own wrapping paper,
decorate five themed trees AND record
and post 3 different Christmas craft tutorials.......
why can't I?


I realized I neglected to show my staircase - so thought 
I would share today.....Maybe we don't have 
a tree in our great room this year, but we have
a staircase decorated with garland!


As an added bonus....how about a photo of our perfectly imperfect
tree at night?  Wait!  Are those wrapped presents I see????
Why yes, yes they are!

  1. Beautiful ~
    I love it all!

    How do you
    keep your lovely
    cedar garland
    fresh until
    Christmas? I'm
    always tempted
    to use fresh inside,
    but mine seems to
    dry out FAST! Tips,
    please!!

    PS: So glad you and
    yours were not at the
    mall yesterday. What
    a terrible tragedy.

  9. Your tree is just darling. I would give up all my fake trees if my husband would let me have a real one again. Don't let anyone make you feel like you are not doing enough, your home is just darling and I like all your Christmas touches.
