Today I'm continuing the Christmas decorating "tour" of my home!
Here are some pictures from our family room! :)
I bought this lovely tassel from Nester at Nesting Place, and I heart it SOOOO much!!
This little Santa's glittered self is perfect with his soft colors and ribbons and trims!
Love it! :)
Here's our "family room tree". Yup, I'm having to specify, cause I've got several trees which are all decorated differently. And I also change things up every couple of years. Maybe I'll do a post on different Christmas trees I've had over the years!
This year since I made a garland for the mantle (see yest. post!), I just did a simple tree in this room to match.
It's a fake tree (soooo much easier in my opinion than real -- burn a pine scented candle!), and I just stuck in more fake greenery like I used in the garland, a mossy green ribbon that I already had, silver tiny jingle bell garland from Michael's, and silver glitter snowflake ornaments from Target (4 for $.99!).
Simple and easy!
The tray on our ottoman with Christmas books, more vintage ornaments, my fav Home Sweet Home Candle, an angel and new cloche from Michaels.
Some of you on the comments yesterday said that you were glad to see I was "keepin' it real" with showing my cord and other things :). Ready for more keeping it real moments??
Here you go!:
My "tree skirt" is actually a lace curtain panel! And I just threw it down there for the photo yest. I was too lazy to get down on my belly and wrap it all the way around the tree!
And it's still exactly like that today!
The ribbon on the tree wasn't long enough to wrap around it. In fact it's not all one piece! I just tucked it around the front and sides.
Same for the garland!
My new cloche still has the white bar code tag stuck on the back behind the angel! I have a thing with those sticky little things -- I hate them, they take effort to take all the way off. Maybe I'll remove it soon. Maybe!! ;)
Lesson?? Work with what you have and go with the flow! :)
Your home can look lovely on a small budget.
"Fake" it till you make it!!!
Have a great day, my friends!
