A Few Christmas Decorations

Well, the tree is decorated, the lights are twinkling and a few other sparkles have been added around the house as we celebrate the Christmas season.  I started with the tiniest tree and added it to the buffet table in the dining room...

The middle sized tree (I think I've read "The Three Bears" too many times!) is in the playroom.... the kids decorated it using salt dough ornaments, the tags we hung on our thanksgiving tree and newly painted glass bulb ornaments (we squirted paint inside clear glass bulbs and watched the colors mix and swirl- good science and art project all in one!).

I also added a white wreath over a mirror in the entry way...

Then I decorated the mantel.... I'm partial to white lights, but my husband LOVES colored lights.  So, we compromise..... colored lights on the mantel and white lights everywhere else.  Actually, I think it looks fun.

And of course, I saved the best for last..... the big tree!  The tree is in our living room and it's beautiful... I decorated it with silver, gold and cream ornaments and then I strung a few pictures from years past around the tree.  I love looking at the pictures and seeing the kids when they were a bit younger.  Great memories!

Under the tree is just a large scrap of burlap fabric bunched up around the base (much cheaper than a tree skirt!).

I hope you're enjoying a little sparkle during the Christmas season!
