a very merry christmas at home.

December 25, 2016

It's been festive at home since late October.  Yes, I decorated incredibly early and my reason for that is "I want to get my $$$ worth".  I didn't realize until this year that I have a ton of owl things, 80% of my Christmas owl decor are gifts from loved ones.  I wanted to keep the color-scheme the same as last year but this time make it a bit more white with hints of gold and silver sprinkled everywhere.

The only red I had this year was all in my wrapping.  It's sad to say, but this year I wasn't in the mood for wrapping gifts.  I kept it simple with the butcher paper, but used different fabric ribbon, mainly red.  With gift tags I kept it traditional with vintage Christmas stamp set I use every year and kept it uniform, using only one design.

Other than the folks gifting me owl decor; the tree, brass stocking holders, plain bulb ornaments, and pine cone ornaments are all from target. The stockings, and white & gold owl are from anthropologie, and the white porcelain owl cup is from world market.  I would check out all three places right now as they all have after Christmas sales!

I'm thankful that I get to decorate the house the way I want it and M just goes along with it.  He even buys or suggests items while shopping that can definitely go with the decor.  For New Years weekend, I plan to take everything down and re-decorate our console since I bought him a record player for Christmas, and we have a few other new trinkets from Dallas as well.  A small part of me is telling me to keep the decorations until Valentines.  Another month won't hurt! ;)
