When I see all the pastel Christmas decorations starting to come into stores I think of the song..."I was Country when Country wasn't cool..."
I was sugar plum Christmas, when sugar plum Christmas wasn't cool.
I have always loved a pastel Christmas. For years I had a flocked tree with pink and white decorations. All my friends thought I was very "unique". Well now the market seems to be showing me I am not so unique anymore.
My rule this time of year is to save every penny to spend on gifts for my kids. But when I saw this little house for $9.99 at HomeGoods I really wanted it. There was only a few so I knew it was one of those now or never things.
I have been enjoying it all day today so I am so glad I treated myself to it. I need to get some AAA batteries because it lights up :) How cute will that be? I want to live in this little pink house.
My daughter, Janae, has been decorating her house which has been getting me in the mood to decorate for the holidays too. I found a candlestick at Goodwill that I painted in pearl paint for the holiday.
Here it is before...
So much more me in pearl white!
I am really excited to decorate my tree this year. I saw this tree not long ago in Romantic Country magazine and I want to do something similar...
I have been collecting little frames at Goodwill. I am going to paint them white and put pictures of Christmas' past in them.
I plan to do a fresh Noble tree with all white ornaments. Should be fun.
Here is last years tree--
I also have some new ideas for the mantle---I am thinking some white glittery deer would look pretty on the mantle this year.
Here is last years mantle...
So much to do...so little time!
Thanks for visiting!
