Trimming Our Christmas Tree

The house is slowly starting to look like Christmas.

The trees are trimmed, our Christmas lights are hung and I'm ready to make my garland and change my shelves.

This year, with our dining room table now in the sun room off the kitchen, we have plenty of space in our small living room for a large tree.

I love Christmas. 

The house just feels so warm and cozy all decorated.

Yes, I've even begun wrapping my Christmas presents.

I added a burlap runner to our buffet. I will add a few boughs to the shelf, but I haven't got that far yet.

I'm also ready to put away my brown transferware and replace it with my red.

Each year, I like to add a few new decorations to my collection.

This year I found this beautiful mercury glass finial from Pottery Barn, as well as the pine cone and other ornament below. The rusty bells were part of a collection I sold at my sale.

I also added some burlap ribbon and twig balls.
