I can't decorate much for Christmas this year. I have "this" to contend with:
Oh well, there's always next year! My Christmas decor this year is pretty minor but I'm making the best of what I can put up. I've taken a few of my very favourite ornaments and scattered them around.
Max killed the huge poinsettia I had on the floor, so this is all I have left. At least I have a really cute little Santa hat pot to put it in!
|Isn't it a pretty colour? I love the variegated bracts.|
Faking a little mantel for the living room...
|A girlfriend gave me that lovely "Believe" wall hanging last Christmas and my mom bought|
me these fabulous embroidered stockings.
and another faux mantel in the kitchen!
|I love love love my roosters. They're up all year round so I've given them a Christmas look with red ribbons. I painted my napkin holder with red chalk paint so I can write whatever I like on it.|
I cannot leave him in a box so he's up high where (hopefully) Max will leave him alone...
Christmas is a crock! I plunked my tiny trees in crocks to keep them from falling over
during any Max-attacks. It's working!!! and I really like the look.
I only used non-breakable ornaments on my tiny tree. The wood bead garland was one of my favourite finds at a country store years ago. I found the wooden ornaments at Ikea (again, years ago). The grapevine vase fillers make lovely rustic'y' Christmas balls and the stuffed snowmen - well, they only lasted a couple of days cause Maxie LOVES stuffies...
|This funky tin tree came from the Dollar Store (not for $1 either) but it reminded me of A Charlie Brown Christmas when Linus and Charlie Brown go to find the Christmas tree and all the trees are metal. Soooo cute!|
And that, my friends, is the extent of my Christmas decor!
So from my house to yours, we wish you a very Merry holiday season!!
