First off let me say Happy New Year everyone! I hope that this New year brings only joy and happiness to all. Thank you to each and every one of you who follow along with me and my crazy self.
In the world of blogging it seems you must start your Christmas decorating at the begging of October. I could not bring myself to start until November 1st and I thought I was ahead of the game for once. Ha! The joke was on me. I was getting wrapped up in making everything look just perfect and kept tweaking things till it came down to the wire and I had a choice to make- become a total wild and crazy woman taking pics of the rest of our holiday decor or just sit back, relax, and enjoy things just how they were with my family.
|So here is our tree and all the "keeping it real glory" around here!;)|
|Jingle Bell jute ribbon I found at Home Goods. Wish I could have found more of it.|
|DIY pom pom garland that the boys helped out with. Note to self if ya wanna make some pom pom garland start months in advance and NOT weeks!;)|
|I use a mixture of ornaments on our tree and I have to say a lot of my favorites are from the Dollar Store like these red ribbons with vintage looking bells.|
|The tree was truly magical this year and I will hate taking it down.|
|I just love how cozy our living room looked with the addition of the DIY wood beams. Even though I did not get picture perfect pics of the space I have to say it truly was just perfect!|
