I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are still glowing in the light of all that is yummy food!!
Or I should say
As I sit here catching up in blogland, eating my third helping of
turkey, stuffing, beans, mashed potatoes, rolls, cranberry in a can and pie, (still in my jammies) I am relishing in the fact that it is officially the Christmas Season!!!
Everyone is breaking out the posts, pictures and inspirations for the Season and
I have already put the tree and decorated the mantel,
but I am still adding little things here and there so I am only going to show you bits and pieces of what I have been up to!
We had to get a new tree this year due to the flood last year and Martha Stewart's Pre-Lit-Tree-That-Didn't-Stay-Lit smelling rather moldy!
We picked up this little 6 1/2 foot tree at Menard's and the galvanized tub at an antique store for a steal! ($12)!
It is the perfect size for our room and fit perfectly in the tub!!
(that orange blur would be my son who cannot, for the life of him, sit still)
It has small tinsel needles at the end of some of the branches,
and small pine cones throughout the tree!
I tried to stay with natural elements this year with a touch of country charm.
New Picnik Christmas textures!!
I will be back Monday to show you the rest of the family room and the tree!
I am going to spend some much needed time with the family and just relax, watch movies and start my holiday shopping!!
For those of you who participated in Black Friday, I hope that you found what you were looking for and are home safe and sound!!
Have a wonderful and restful weekend!!
