Decking the Halls

Our humble little home is all dressed for Christmas.

The tree is rather sparse on the bottom in hopes that C will not create a repeat of last year's
debacle. On Christmas Eve, while we were busy prepping dinner, the entire tree was toppled by a curious little boy. Smashed ornaments, broken lights...good times...

The huge white iron chandelier was a new addition this year and I decorated it with ropes of faux gumdrops. Kitschy & cute!

Later, I will post photos of the kitchen. I draped my vintage copper cookie cutters across a garland of cinnamon sticks. Something fun to look at while I do the dishes.

Happy decorating, everyone!


  1. The chandlier looks good with the gumdrops, that is a great idea.

  2. Is your tree real? I can't remember if you guys do real ones or not. It's so, so, SO exciting to think that we might be there next year. The boys have been talking about it more than normal. Everything and everyone looks great!
