Every year I think maybe I won't do any decorating.....then I get shamed by all of the blog tours and great ideas on the web and I fold like a cheap tent.
The first thing I did was drive all over tarnation looking for black and white stripe ribbon. That was a bust.
After going to HG's, Marshall's, Michaels, and Target I gave up. It looks like every blogger in the city bought it all. Of course they probably started in November:)
OK....scratch that..... go up to the attic and dig through what I hastily shoved into bins last year.
I am thinking you better bring your expectations way....way down.
This shot is the entrance after coming through my foyer. A plaid bow, some greenery from the back yard and a strand of gold mercury glass beads from West Elm [all Christmas decor is 30% off].
I added a few small mercury glass balls on top of my limestone sewer balls....
Moving into the LR
Who am I kidding....it's all one room actually:) There is my one piece of stripe ribbon that started the hunt.
I mean black and white ribbon was made for me right?
You can see I went all out here....with some more greenery and a large glass ball. Are you scratching your head wondering what all the fuss is about? It looks so much prettier at night with all the candles lit and Christmas music playing:)
I know....lame. And guess what? Of course I am going to stretch this out for another post cause what else is there to talk about in December?
Go ahead and hate.
I can take it.
And it will give me time to steal some more ideas from y'all:)
