I’m exhausted right now, so I can only hope this post is coherent. The last 3 days were spent decorating our new house for Christmas. It’s done, it’s beautiful – a dream come true, but I’m pooped. It was a lot of fun though to see how all of our old decorations fit into the new house. It’s funny, but even though I loved them at the old house, it’s as if all of our Christmas stuff was just made for this new house all along! When in fact the decorations in just one room are new for this house.
Our living room has a whole new “White Christmas” theme, and I absolutely love it even though ironically “White Christmas” is not my favorite movie. (I much prefer “Love Actually,” but you can’t exactly decorate a room around it… Little Hugh Grant figurines dancing to “Jump?” Christmas lobsters in the manger scene? No thanks.) It’s all all white and silver and pale green and sparkly with lots of snowflakes and little trees and houses covered in snow.
I looked all over to collect the decorations for our living room.
Some are from Crate and Barrel, some are from Pottery Barn this year, some are from Pottery Barn last year, some are from Target.
Some like the snowflake marquee and the signs on the long shelf are even homemade with supplies from Michael’s and the Silhouette Design Store.
It’s a room that’s totally different from anything else in the house, but I must admit it might be my favorite.
But I still don’t like the “White Christmas” movie. I’ll stick with “Love Actually” for my viewing pleasure, thank you very much!
