~Merry Christmas and Our Christmas Tree 2013~

Well, Christmas is upon us, once again! We are very late in getting our decor up this year; but, we are enjoying what's left of the season. Today, I am sharing a couple of shots of our Christmas tree.


After going with lots of bling in Christmases past, I decided to keep things simple this year. I wanted to go back to the traditional red, green and gold. For some reason, I was feeling a bit nostalgic this year. Usually, I do lots of florals and picks and 'fluff' on top; but this year, I chose to go with a beautiful angel. The traditional colors work well with our home; and we are enjoying the change.


I went through my stash of ornaments and pulled everything that was red, green, and gold. I also used the same fleur de lis and poinsettia ornaments from last year.


From our home to yours, we wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

  12. I felt the same way this year, Shenita! I wanted to have a lot of the tradition right there around me. I went all red & gold in the living room where I spend most of my time. Something about that feeling of tradition and good times past that makes Christmas a super special time.

    You did a slam bang job on your tree, fireplace and staircase!!! Absolutely magnificent!!! I hope your Christmas was a great one...one for the memory books!
