I hope everyone’s having a lovely holiday season! 🙂
Things here are great. I’ve spent most of the day baking cookies, which is always fun.
I thought I would take some time out to share a few of my favorite Christmas decorations with you all. I always enjoy seeing everyone else’s!
As with everything else, I try to keep things simple when it comes to how heavily we decorate around here. These days, we pretty much stick with just the tree and a few outdoor lights. The apartment we moved to this year doesn’t have a balcony, though, and our windows aren’t really visible, so…Steve strung the lights inside, instead. I love the effect, and kind of wish we could leave them up all year :).
We’ve been using clothes pins to hang our Christmas cards from the lights as they arrive.
Here’s our tree. It’s fake and I bought it at Target for twenty dollars seventeen years ago. I’d say I’ve gotten my money’s worth!
And now for a few of my favorite ornaments.
A couple of cute Santas:
Winnie the Pooh is very popular around here.
I also have a lot of baking themed ornaments. A lot of these are from the Hallmark “Season’s Treatings” collection, but I don’t have the whole set.
This year I also hung these pot-holders on the fridge. I’m not sure what year they’re from, but they’re pretty old. They were my grandmother’s.
And last but not least, my star tree-topper, which came from the Dollar Store the same year as the tree, 2000. Not bad for a two dollar purchase!
What are some of your favorite holiday decorations? Have you had them forever and a day, like I have? 😉
Happy holidays, y’all!
