Christmas decorating this year has been pretty simplistic so far. One fun change though is that I finally painted my hutch white and I love it. (It used to be black). It's so bright and cheery now!
I've kept several things behind in the storage boxes, mainly because I just don't know what to do with them and also because things have gotten to be a bit dated. (ie: out of style). There's nothing sentimental about any of those items so I don't feel bad. And although I would love to make some new things because there are so many super cute ideas, projects, books, blogs for amazingly adorable decorating inspiration and I wish I could wave a magic wand and be able to DO IT ALL, I don't think I'll be to. I need to move on to some other things and I'm happy with that too, so it's okay. ;)
So anyway, here's what things looked like when my house was all cleaned up and the sun was brightly shining for 1/2 a day before the clouds and rain came storming through, so I snagged the chance to photograph it: ;)
Now, I know I have a patchwork wall. I am slowly painting the khaki walls to gray....it's a process and that armoire can't be moved without the hubby's help. Hopefully it won't be that way too long. :)
Here's a closer peek of the tree:
We have a little village that the kids love.
We always restock candy canes regularly during December....I'm pretty flexible about a healthy dose of good 'ole fashioned peppermint candy canes. I really don't buy the other flavors. I think they aren't real candy canes. ;) The peppermint ones look cute and authentic.
Ava was with me, of course, when I was taking pictures. (All the boys were at school)
She had a candy cane. Mmmmm.....
Here's her sticky and adorable face:
She also loved playing with my green pear candles that my sweet visiting teachers brought me. She kept posing with them for me so I would keep taking her picture. Such a girly girl.
