Despite our best intentions to sit around and do nothing this weekend, we managed to put up the tree and decorate a bit. Shockingly, all went well, despite having a new four-legged member of the family who felt the need to help redecorate the tree. (I imagine his inner monologue goes something like this: "No, that ornament doesn't go there, it belongs in my crate. And those lights are waaay too bright. Let me help by chewing the cord. Ah! Much better!")
Sawyer's help aside, we got the project done. Here's a little taste:
|My favorite ornament. They were dramatically on sale last year. You know I bought three of them.|
|Also super lovely, also from last year after Christmas. Also, I bought three boxes of these.|
|A present from my sister. They came in a set of... three!|
|I think this one is gorgeous. Amazingly enough, I only have one,|
And I spiced up the entryway with some candles. I tried to vary the sizes and the holders as much as possible. It gives a really textured, sophisticated look that I like.
