Tag Archives: Christmas decorations

 
Hard to believe another Christmas come and gone. Sigh.

I always find the week after New Year’s to be a little sad since I know the time is near to take down the garlands, box up the ornaments and lights and put away all the dressings of the season.

But before we do, let’s make the magic last a wee bit longer with a tour of this year’s holiday decorations. I guess you could say my style is traditional with just a bit of whimsy for the part of me that refuses to grow up! Enjoy! 🙂

Uh oh, for all you naughty ones out there, Santa’s watching and he doesn’t look happy! 😉

Yeah, you could say I decorate for Christmas. 😉

There’s just something about the twinkling lights and the ornaments and the candles and the nostalgia that gets me every time. And even though I utilize the same decorations each year (well, perhaps with a few new things thrown in from time to time as well as a few items retired), rarely is anything placed in the exact same location from one year to the next. I find this challenges both my creativity (and my sanity) but keeps things fresh and new for us each season. The biggest and most difficult change this year was the switch over to almost all (say, 95%?) warm LED lights. Good for us and good for the environment! 🙂

So, shake off the cold and enjoy this tour of just a few of the areas of our home all decked out for the holidays. Feliz Navidad! 🙂
