Yesterday morning I woke up to the best surprise ever. In many ways it was like Christmas.
I finally got my parents handy down sofa, chair, and two ottomans! I wanted this set so badly that I painted my living room and dining room colors to match the set in hopes that they would one day be mine. The set works beautifully in our little house, giving us lots of extra comfy places to sit and finally a put together look. We will have to have everything covered most of the time because of the dogs but it is so worth it. I am also trying to teach the dogs not to sit on the chair. Wish me luck with that!
We picked up our tree today. The tree place we went to is run by volunteers, and all the proceeds go to youth programs in our area. So even if the needles fall off early we can feel good about having a real tree for Christmas.
I was hoping that I could go buy Christmas ornaments the day after christmas this year
but I haven't really seen any I'm crazy about.
I personally think Target has been a bit of a let down this year.
In the mean time I bought a box of old glass ornaments at the flea market for $1, four packages of ice cream cone shaped bubble containers at the dollar store, and some crate paper and whaa-laa I have a 7' decorated tree for just around 7 dollars. What a bargain!
I love decorating my home for the holidays. It's the perfect excuse to go over the top!
I hope you are all having as much fun decorating you own homes.
I look forward to seeing how you decorate and celebrate the holidays!
