Deck the halls..

December 14th, 2009

Now that the outside of our house was properly decorated, Mr.vB and I focused on getting the inside up to snuff this past weekend.  We headed out first thing Saturday morning to our favorite Christmas tree lot on the north side of town.  Mr.vB’s dad has gotten us hooked on these super tall, super lanky Charlie Brown Trees and since we have 9′ ceilings I was going for the MAX height this year!!

After a small fight with the xmas tree stand, to which the tree fell over TWICE, we were up and ready to get decorating!


Here’s a close up of my homemade Angel atop the tree.

DSC_0083She still needs a face and some hair, but I think she is pretty cute.  My mom and I made this angel last year out of an old sheet soaked in liquid starch and then molded around a cup until it dried.  We copied the one she and my dad made over 30 years ago.  Thank goodness we did, because my mom’s angel was destroyed in the fire.  She and I were hoping to make her a new one to put on her tree this year, but we have run out of time.  Look for a tutorial after the new year- they are super easy to make!

Here’s the finished product!


DSC_0109I’m in love with Christopher Radko ornaments- a bad habit that my mom has started.  Here is one of my favorite’s- the bride and groom.  Here’s another I grabbed for Mr.vB last year..

I love my view from the sofa.

DSC_0130Why isn’t it acceptable to have Christmas Tree’s up year round??

    Looking good. Like how you used the lights from the Dollar Store. You could start a Xmas Decorating business and decorate homes for others (in your spare time).
