Usually I would have had the house all decorated by now, but this past weekend of hosting Thanksgiving made me very very lazy! We still have yet to buy a tree - trying to convince the hubbs to go pick up one today! We originally planned to go with a fresh tree this year, but I just think we are going to purchase a nicer artificial now...it'll just be easier with Dizzle & everything. I bought a bunch of blue bulbs to make a bulb wreath, but then decided against doing it because it'll seriously impede the storm door from shutting, so I was planning on using them to decorate the tree. But, I'm doing mostly whites, reds & silvers thru out the decor for the house, so, on second thought, I may try to see if Walmart will let me exchange those blue bulbs for red or silver (I don't think I have the receipt anymore)! I did get over to Michael's this past weekend though & bought some stuff to make a DIY wreath for our front door & bought some goodies to decorate the rest of the house too!
First up on my list of things to get done around the house - finish my wreath. I really, really tried finishing it yesterday, but by the time I completely decided on what I wanted to do, I had to get dinner started, then I lounged out for an hour or so watching TV, then did a little work on the wreath, but got too tired to continue, so I plan on finishing it today after work. I got my loose inspiration for the wreath from this PB beaut:
Second on the list - my living room table. It had a nice fall-y colored candy dish with a bunch of candy left over from Halloween, but I took that off & add three of these cute Ikea lanterns:
For the entryway table, which is actually between the LR & DR, I plan on doing something similar to this:
I am going to add some faux white poinsettias to the Pier One vase that is displayed on top of our kitchen cabinets. And speaking of Pier One - I stopped in there on Black Friday & bought some cute Santa & snow man figurines & put those up on the fireplace mantle in the basement. And finally, I added some cute gingerbread man dish towels to hang from the oven in the kitchen.
So, that's about it - hopefully I will have some pictures of *completed* projects to share in the next day or two! And I still have to get pmb ALL of my Christmas shopping done! Most wonderful time of year right?!!
