It occurred to me that with all the hustle and bustle in December, I never took the time to take you guys on a tour of my holiday decorations. Last year they weren’t that much to look at on account of the recent move, but this year they were pretty swank (if I do say so myself). Of course, I was too busy putting them up to stand back and take a picture or two. Typical.
So now, just as I’m preparing to take them down this weekend, I thought I’d walk around and take some pictures while I still can. Better late than never, right?
I get that not everybody is into the traditional ‘twelve days’ of Christmas. So if you are long past drained of holiday spirit, this post may not interest you. See you Monday. For everyone else, read on…
|Are you noticing a theme on this one? It’s birds. I have three trees covered with birds, feathers and birds. And a few balls for color. Did I mention the birds?|
|The pink tree on the left, and the peacock tree on the right.|
|My Aunt Cake and I have the same tree toppers — peacocks. She has one on her tree because they have a wild peacock living on their property. For real. They feed him cheerios and cat food. I have one on my tree because I like him. And because the hippopotamus tree topper was too heavy. (This is the part where I am supposed to link to the tutorial on how I made him, but it appears Mod Cloth took it off their site. Maybe I’ll do another next year.|
|There is The Old Tomato wreath on the right and a smaller one on the left hung over the mirror. I like hanging wreaths on top of mirrors. It makes them seem more dignified. More purposeful. Or something.|
|Did I mention I like pink?|
|The pink tree and the pajaki chandelier compete a little. I’m okay with it though. They need to learn to get along.|
|The black and white tree skirt is an actual skirt I get to wear often enough, so ‘m glad the pink tree is having a good time with it.|
Sigh, how the mighty will fall.
