Decking the Halls

Well, I’ve gotten most of the Christmas decorating done. In the process of doing a thorough cleaning and reorganization of my kitchen (and completing #62 on my “Day Zero” list! YAY…) I was washing a vase and cut my hand. It was so bad I thought I might need stitches, but Jeff went out and brought home the entire bandage aisle from the local pharmacy, and I made it through without bleeding to death or going to the ER. Thanks hubby 🙂

Anyhoo…I literally decorated one handed this year, so it took slightly longer than expected. Here’s what I’ve accomplished so far…

*

I swapped the mini pumpkins and gourds for glass bulbs…

Put the vintage Christmas tablecloth on the table…

Hung the silk sari stockings by the chimney with care…

Placed Old St. Nick on the mantle…

Found a perfect place for the kissing Claus couple…

Simplified the sideboard…

Brewed tea in the snowman teapot…

Filled the cookie jar with gumdrop cookies…

And made cotton ball Christmas trees with Gracie.

Stay tuned for the next installment…Oh Tannenbaum

Please share your favorite holiday and decorating traditions with me!

XO,

Melissa

    Oh so beautiful as always!! I decided not to pull all of my decorations out this year, because I’m bored with them to be honest. Thinking I’m going to hit all the after Christmas sales and stock up on new things for next year! With all the cookies we make every year, a cookie jar is definitely on the list!! Love seeing how you celebrate each holiday – it’s so fun to look into someone else’s home! 🙂
