Christmas Time is Here!

It's a winer wonderland outside my house and I'm hoping for that White Christmas everyone is currently singing about. The freeway and roads near my house are so quiet and if I try hard enough I can almost imagine what it would be like to live away from the city...well almost. I just love the ground all covered in white though and will enjoy it while it lasts.

Last year I was so good about getting my Christmas decorations up early and even had all my Christmas presents purchased, wrapped and under the tree at least two weeks ahead of time. This year however I've not been quite that organized. I have no plans of company at my house this year so I guess I was a bit lazy. I still enjoy setting out some of my pretty things and decorating the tree just to satisfy the Christmas decorating urge.

There's a large thrift store not far from my house that I stop by often. They always have random vintage Christmas items for sale all year round so I've been collecting vintage bulbs this past 8 months. I had not realized how many I had until I pulled out all the boxes. Much to my suprise I was able to cover my whole tree. The ornaments tend to lose their tops and not wanting to waste them I had the idea to turn them upside down on top of some of my lights. It is a subtle effect but very pretty as you can sort of see in the pics below.

A couple other spaces in my house got added Christmas decor as well but I kept it pretty simple.

My parents's puppies even stopped by to help with the Christmas decorating but as you can see they were not of much use except for being pretty cute! :0)

Well I have a wrapping paper mess to clean up so I best get to it.
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!
