Black Friday 2012

It’s Black Friday – anyone want to guess what I did today?   Shopping?  No freaking way – I have zero desire to fight the crowds for “bargains” in the middle of the night or early morning.  This lady enjoys sleeping at night and getting to sleep past 6:30 a.m. on a Friday is pure luxury.  So instead of shopping I started Christmas decorating. I decided that this year less is more.  Simple and uncluttered.  I think I used about one-third of the decorations we own.

I decided to go with a Christmas tree theme this year.  Trees I’ve collected, trees we’ve made, funky trees, traditional trees.  Some made of glass, others of paper, some covered with ribbon and others with glitter.

I also went with a few pine cones I picked up at Marshall’s in early November during a half price sale.  I mixed them up with some ornaments in a couple of antiques boxes.  I love the look. 

I also changed out the pillows in the living room.  

And put together a quick centerpiece for the dining room table. 

Our oldest daughter wrapped gifts for her friends.  

I can hardly wait until we go pick our tree this weekend!
