Finally last night I broke out the holiday decorations. No real tree for us... with wall to wall carpet in our new place bringing in a sappy tree just didn't seem the smartest thing to do.
I have my sturdy wire tree that sits on the table where I am able to hang all my favorite ornaments. This year was a bit stressful because I had more favorites than I had room on the tree. I had to get a little creative and it worked out great. I have a small winter village under the tree with some minature foil wrapped gifts.
I fill my cake plate dome with bulbs and have that displayed on the counter- my favorite Martha Stewart holiday trick.
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas."
(sorry I have not photos to post- hopefully later today I can clean up the camera disk and get some photos on here)
