My Christmas tree, that is. Since getting my own apartment, I've had the same fake little tree. It's a very nice, full, psuedo-realistic fake tree, and the decoration has varied slightly from year to year, but I decided this year I'd shake it up a bit. Both this year and last, while perusing Home Depot, my attention was grabbed by these cute little potted trees for $25 a piece.
Considering I took a pretty much identical phone pic last year, I went for it!
It's a little Charlie Brown-ish, but I'm totally digging it. She's got Pizazz!
And it got a custom pot thanks to rope and hot glue.
It grounds it and adds texture below the branches. Small project for such an impact!
I also reused last year's DIY clay ornaments, although I'm thinking a new DIY ornament for this year is in order, don't you think?
As I mentioned last week, for the first time ever, the interior wasn't the only place getting a bit of decoration. After a bit of hemming and hawing, I decided to go au naturale outside with real garland draped around the porch entry with simple white lights. At night it adds just a little bit of 'sparkle' and makes me smile without making dear Hubby cringe- mission accomplished!
I've also purchased my FIRST EVER wreath! Yup, I've never been a wreath person before, but this one from Target hit just the right note.
I'm sure some of the decorations will evolve a bit over the next few weeks as I play around with things a bit more. It's definitely helping to get me in the Christmas spirit! That and LOTS of Christmas music! It's an addiction, that I only let myself indulge in for a month every year. Who's with me? What's your favorite Christmas song or CD?
