Hi EVERYONE little my little I am getting more holiday decorations up and thought I would share some pictures....Our tree will go up this week. I'm decorating this year but simpler. We debated on putting up a tree or not at all? We decided we are going to put up a tree but just with lights and snowflakes and not pull out all of the ornaments this year. We just want to keep it simple yet tasteful. It's seem like we just got the house together from all of the DYI and to drag out a bunch of boxes to have to put away again. I put out a couple of my snowmen, decorated this shelf and a couple of wooden trees that I placed on my bookcases. Plus, the yard is decorated. I think that is enough. The house looks great though. I can't wait to get the tree up now because I am really getting the Christmas Spirit more now with this project done.
Some pics I use a flash to show details but it isn't that bright IRL and some without the flash. I liked the ones without the flash because that gave at least a little better idea of what it looks like at night. (I'm not a photographer and my little point and shoot is on its last leg. I know I've been complaining about that for at least a year.) The shelf is so cute and turned out so nice. I've been working on this little paper village all weekend. I LERVE GLITTER now. I can't get enough of it. I have lots of glitter in lots of colors from lots of different manufacturers but my favorite is still dazzling diamonds from Stampin Up (I didn't use any with this project, just saying)! Nobody has even come close to how pretty that schtuff is. But anywho. This little village is a Martha Stewart Kit that I had from last year and never got around to making. Out of the box (OOB) it comes with these little white paper houses, with score lines ready to assemble. I've added the glitter to add more sparkle. The little wreaths are stickers. It's super simple yet big effect. I put these on the shelf in my kitchen that runs around the top perimeter of the room. Last year I had my Nativity Scene on this shelf but this year I decided to do Frosty Village.
I wish the pictures did it justice but they don't. It's really really pretty IRL. Enjoy!
