Things are finally starting to look a little more seasonal in this house. What great intentions I had to do all of this way before now, but...best laid plans!
I probably have enough
junk decorations for two or three houses; one day, I suppose, I'll have to let some of it go, but then I never do the same thing every year. I just know I'd miss it if I didn't have it anymore!
The kitchen cabinets (four of them) have Dollar Tree wreaths and Hobby Lobby ribbons and bows; I'm certain that I saw this on another blog or on Pinterest (I'm not at all creative, but I can certainly copy!).
This Santa has been around for years; he decorates the front of the china cabinet this year.
Before I started blogging, I had no idea about 'coffee stations!' I've had this 'area' for years. The coffee cups are certainly Dollar Tree purchases, which were given to me by student during my teaching years! They're so sweet and festive! A Christmas plate holds assorted nuts; the Headmaster loves them!
The light fixture above the dining table has my absolute favorite sprays; they are glittered apples and pomegranates, with bronze-ish leaves. Not your typical red (which I used last year). Very earth tone colors; this is one of my most favorite things!
There is more to come, including the gum drop tree (if I can find it), some Fitz and Floyd, and a few other things. I just felt the URGE to get this up and going!
