Christmas is only days away – can you believe? I’ve finished my course, passed my exam, and done as much decorating as I’m going to do!
Want to take a little peek?
Last year I tried my hand at cedar boughs on the banister, and this year I decided to swag it up instead.
The bobbles are thrifted vintage Shiny Brites! I was thrilled to find 5 of these all in one place
And a nice collection of beautifully patinaed and worn ones, too!
We have lots of glass and twinkling candle light…
Under the glass cloche are vintage jingle bells…
And yes, that’s Angel Hair that you see!
In the background is a handmade straw ornament by Ursula at Sea to Canvas, and we have smaller ones on our ginormous Blue Fir tree!
Our tree skirt is a swath of burlap wrapped around the tree, with warm white mini lights sprinkled underneath… another idea I found on Pinterest!
If you’ve been following along, you might remember this brass urn I thrifted for my Paperwhites.
Well, they’ve been replaced with a little Alberta Spruce tree. You see, the Paperwhites grew waaaay to tall and leggy.
Here’s what I’ve done with them now!
You’ll even find a small splash of greenery in a few unsuspecting spots…
So this is a little tour of our home this year. I haven’t taken photos of everything, because you might already have seen some of it last year. To see last year’s decor, click here. We use the same advent calendar, always have an advent wreath, and our stockings and crèche scene are set out.
I am feeling mostly ready, but still have some things left undone. How about you? Are you finished with your list of things to do?
Thank you for stopping by!
