Simply Christmas

Christmas is in the air, presents are wrapped. Lights are hung and tis the season to relax and enjoy! It sure has been hard to get into the Christmas spirit around these parts. No snow. Can you believe it? It was 50 degrees today on December 15 in Michigan. Geesh.

A little bling for the cabinet.
Mind you, I do like snow but I don't L O V E snow. So, snow around Christmas and New Year's is great and then I am done. But seriously, nothing.

Well, let's get movin' on to the 2011 Christmas Tour of Homes. Isn't it exciting?? On to the pictures. 
Red is my favorite Christmas color.
I just can't seem to get away from it.
Got this cute little lantern for $3, spray painted
it and added an ornament. Walah!

Ornaments are so cheap. These are all
Dollar Tree ornaments thrown into a
basket bought from Hobby Lobby on clearance.

A little rustic Christmas to the top of my linen
cupboard in the dining room.


What can you do with a plate charger for $1.99,
some dry moss, and Dollar Tree ornaments?

fireplace, mirror, wreath.

Love the reflections of mirrors.
They add so much light and space.

What's Christmas without reindeer? Oh, see the
little stand up plaque behind the reindeer?
$4. at a resale shop.
S W E E T!

Joy. Nuff said.

Lots of moss and ornaments this year.

Adding more bling with ornaments.
