This year I felt in the mood for a touch of the quintessential Christmas color, red. I reused most of my already existing Christmas decorations but added in some new pieces. I have to add that I bought that wool tartan blanket at a thrift store for less than $4! It’s like new too!

Dada drew the most lovely mural depicting the true meaning of Christmas…
We made the Village of houses again this year as our advent calendar.
For the mantel in the sunroom, I picked a few branches from a tree in our backyard and placed them in a vase. I also cut some strands off some variegated vinca that I have planted in pots and used them as garland.

lots of bling add lots of sparkle
The cards are sentimental. Last Christmas the hubby(who was away) sent us about 6 cards. Even Ginger(our dog) received a card! I placed them there as a reminder of just how grateful we are to have him home this Christmas.
Zion and Ian chose this tree from a local farm and decorated it themselves. They also helped me to make those garlands(one on the bed and around Moose’s neck) from pipe cleaners. So much fun!

Our fancy tree! I added in some pink and animal print ornaments this year. I might have gone overboard with the pink. There is more to show, but that would be too many pics. If I am not able to pop back in before Christmas, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Love and Blessings. xx
