Well, this is the last of the decorating posts (unless I decide to change things up which I constantly seem to do).
Here’s the main living area. It’s considerably smaller than the old house with a lot less cabinetry and display areas. It was a real challenge to decorate.
This little pine table is another one that belonged to my mom. I always liked it and had plans to use it in my nest for a side table next to my chair. It didn’t fit tho, so I brought it downstairs.
Notice the yellow/gold candle? I never even noticed that it didn’t really look good next to all the “white” until I downloaded the picture. Amazing what you see when you look at a photograph.
So, I had to change it.
We had bookcases about twice this size on both sides of the fireplace in the other house.
A few closeups.
That’s me with Santa on the left. Emma is in the others.
Mason was in the hospital last year and didn’t get to see Santa. I took Emma while Mommy stayed with him. (picture on the right)
This is all that fits on the other side of the fireplace.
I love all my decorations and so many of them have been given to me by special people, so I had a hard time not using them. That’s why there are so many containers filled with “stuff”.
This last picture was taken from upstairs.
You might notice that I never showed the tree. We had to get a new one because the old one was just too big and wide. Well, this one is too small. It looks downright puny in the room so we ordered a taller one. It hasn’t come yet, but I’ll take a picture when we get it all decorated. We are thinking we’ll move this one into our bedroom which usually isn’t decorated.
So, that’s it! Thanks for hanging in there with me and for your nice comments. I really appreciate you all.
