Christmas Decor

Well, I've had my Christmas decor up for about 2 weeks now. I put it up early because we are going to be taking it down early before we go on vacation in Mid-December so that is my excuse. As I was decorating I realized that I don't even have that much decor.  Here is my front door...Welcome!
A few little trees gracing my entry table...these are waiting for the villages to join them when I stop being lazy and dig them out soon. :)

The only nativity I own. My mom gave me these when I first went to collage. They are about 3 inches tall. I love em' though. Someday when we get settled into our real home and stop our cross country moves I want to invest in a large nativity. (hopefully this coming summer will be our last huge move!)
Some fun crafty blocks we made one year. Every holiday season the girls in my family do a "craft". It is sooo fun!
I still have some villages and things in boxes...not sure if I will get them out. My tree is cream and like whitish gold. I love it! So calming and beautiful to me. I do an artificial tree because it is cleaner and easier.

This ornament above was 1 inspiration for my bead tree.

These next two ornaments don't match my "color scheme" but when we move to a new place we like to collect an ornament to remind us of our time there. These are from Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. We loved it there so much, Albuquerque is an AMAZING town and the balloon fiesta was always a highlight to our year. So even though it doesn't match, I can't help but smile every time I walk by and see them.
And here is my tree altogether. I was too lazy to take down my home decor behind my tree...and I realized after the fact that my angel is tipping and I am too lazy to go take another picture...but you get the idea!

P.S. I think I have had to re-edit this post 3 times already...I guess I was in a hurry and missed words and spelling errors. Sorry for my lameness. :)

  1. Your tree looks beautiful! Ours is pretty sparse. This is the first year in the past 6 that I've even had any decorations on the bottom 2/3rd's due to curious little fingers. My youngest is 2 1/2 now, so we braved decorating all the way down this year. Ha! I can't wait till they are yet a little older and I can really fill the tree up and have things STAY there ; )

    I love your photos, by the way. What kind of camera do you have?? I think I need to upgrade soon.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! I read each and every one!
