This is my week to get the holiday decorating done. The holidays are not suppose to be stressful but so many of us, myself included, put stress on ourselves trying to make the Christmas season perfect. My plan this year is that I have things mapped out day by day of what I have to have done. The decorating has to be done by tomorrow or I will be off schedule--so wish me luck :)
The mantle is the first place I decorated--and I am pleased with how it turned out.
It is similar to what I have done in previous years but this year I put my houses on it and I am really pleased with the look. I love those little houses and now that they are in a place of honor I feel like I see them more. They make me happy!
Rather than hanging the stockings from decorative hangers that sit on the mantle I hung them by clear Command strip hooks underneath. That left more room on the mantle. I am a fan of Command products...love how you can just remove them after Christmas and no damage done. :)
This display is kind of like my little fantasy neighborhood. I want to live in that pink house and drive that blue truck.
I would love to attend that little white church and Janae could live in the blue house. How fun :)
It has been so cold here! I went out tonight to pick up a pizza for dinner (no time to cook when you're decorating!) and my car said it was 25 degrees. Through the night it has gotten much colder. Makes me happy to have a warm place for my family and I.
I will be sharing the rest of my decorating soon. My tree this year is a big one!
Remember to enjoy the holidays and try not to stress too much!
Thanks for visiting!
