Saturday I decided I better start decorating for Christmas since I’m going to be gone some in the next few weeks. It’s such a huge job so I just figured I’d tackle as much as possible this weekend. Here are some “before” pictures.
Why do we put ourselves through all this?
You’ll have to wait for the “after” pictures since we haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet, but, oh heck, here are a couple of teasers.
I wanted to get the fireplace area finished first because I really wanted to see what the stockings would look like. They are the kits I got from Primitive Gatherings. I’m really happy with them.
Uh oh, this was taken before I put stuff under the candles to stagger the heights!
And a close-up. Hmm, I’m going to have to work on that 4th one getting it to hang straight. Also, too much of the light color on the left. Going to have to switch them . LOL It’s amazing what you see in pictures.
What a better way to spend a Sunday than with some snow on the ground and decorating for Christmas. It actually made the
chore task a lot more fun.
Oh, okay, a couple more sneak peaks.
I’ve got lots of tweaking and “phoofing” to do before you can see the rest but at least it’s a start.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone. Cherish your loved ones because…you just never know...
