Our Home...Christmas Edition

Since last year's Christmas decorating consisted of a pine-scented candle (due to being weeks out from a move/living in the apartment and not knowing where our Christmas boxes were), I was very excited about sprucing up our home for the holidays this year.  Not to mention, it is our first Christmas here in the new-ish house.  I tried to keep it simple--I'm not really into a complete overhaul of my usual decor when it comes to Christmas stuff.  I like to try to just add it in to my usual decor when possible.  It makes the process of putting it away much less painful!

And here's what things are looking like around here (in no certain order)...


Our tree...it looks a bit shrimpy in this house!



Not wanting to fool with garland up the stairs (and not having well-placed outlets for it), I made some wreaths to hang on the outer balusters.  Much easier!






















I purchased the red pillows for Christmas, but I think I may keep them out permanently.  I really like them!


My angel collection...










New San Francisco ornament...


Represent!


Alcatraz memories...


Mason jar ornament from Blue Ridge...so cute!

There you have it!  Merry Christmas!!!
