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!
