I love the beauty of the Christmas season decor, but will happily take it all down when Annabelle arrives next week!
I wanted to share my pre-grandbaby Christmas decorating, so here is
Christmas at the Crossleys!
|Our girls play the violin so I use them in my Christmas decorating.|
|Display your Christmas stories, take time to relax and be inspired during this season!|
|Pictures of "Christmas past" on display...instant conversation starters!|
Once a year my dining table is set and I wonder why I don't do this more often!
|My white porcelain nativity is many years old, a favorite, |
and definitely being put away before the baby gets here!
I am a fan of mini trees. A few years ago I went on a mission to simplify my decorating so I literally hot glued the ornaments into the trees. They stay completely decorated year to year. I simply walk them to the attic until next year!
|My daughter's tree matches her bedroom:)|
My "trees" are tomato cages spray painted white and wrapped in white lights. The are left over from my daughter's Christmas time wedding in 2008. We wrapped them in tulle and lights for a winter wonderland effect at the reception.
It is so easy to pull them out of the attic and set them up on the porch.
Classic pre-lit garland placed around the columns.... and I am done!
I love decorating, I love having my house stay decorated, however, I love my grandbaby more!
And so Christmas will remain for years to come "beautifully decorated.....until the grandbabies come:)
