With all that said, I absolutely LOVE the way our home looks when I am all finished and without further adieu...here is our "home for the holidays"!
On the right is a mini-tree I received as a gift at my Christmas Shower last year. The tall mercury glass apothecary jar is from Pottery Barn on sale last year after the holidays. The large frame holds our wedding invitation and the small frame holds one of our most favorite wedding pictures :) :) Finally I just filled a small vase with mini christmas balls from Target.
Our dining room:
This arrangement is on top of our upholstered ottoman (which I upholstered myself - a tutorial on that is coming up soon!). I filled our tray with both live and faux greenery pick from the dollar store(!!), candles, pine-cones and of course, a Poinsettia.
This is just a little something from the bar in our kitchen.
Last but not least...beautiful tree!
Our tree is a gift from my grandmother and originally had very our ugly interesting fiber optic lights that constantly changed colors! For this "I only like white lights girl", that just was not working! My poor husband had to take down the tree, take apart the tree's base and figure out how to take the light wheel out. We still have fiber optic lights but at least they are only white!
Now I just wish I would keep them up all year!
