Twas The Week Before Christmas…

…and this bad little blogger still has so much left to show you!

<<<<insert all the face palm emojis here>>>>

Alright, there’s dining room and kitchen and bedroom stuff…not really all that exciting, as there was a lot of repeating in the decor department this year. I did do a new simple centerpiece in the dining room though…

And by simple, I mean SIMPLE. I just put a battery operated candle and berries in that cute wooden bird cage thing-a-ma-jig I got a while back from Michael’s, placed some magnolia leaves and berry garland around it, added a couple of those $3 Target white houses on the ends, and for some height, flanked it with taper candlesticks.

Fun fact: those black candlesticks are glass ones from the Dollar Tree that I spray painted! Can’t beat decor for a buck!

Oh, and pine cones! I threw a few of them in the mix as well.

For the chandelier, I had another berry garland that I put around the rungs, and then some freebie greens from the tree farm place.

Do not be alarmed – Sparkle is FAR from the light bulbs – promise!

As for the china cabinet, more of the same: candles, greens, berries…and that adorable stocking garland I got at Michael’s last year.

I love this room at night when all the candles are on. Nighttime at Christmastime is my very favorite.

7 More Sleeps! Excitement is in the air!

Sorry so late but promise there’s more to come tomorrow and Wednesday…:) Have a great Monday!
