We made it through the week!
I am feeling much more in control of the holiday season now.
All of the shopping, wrapping and shipping is done for another year.
We can now sit back and enjoy all that this wonderful time, my favorite time, of the year has to offer.
One of my favorite parts of the season is the decorating!
It is a serious obsession with me.
I have bins upon bins upon bins
of all kinds of Christmas stuffs!
I am really trying to only use what I have on hand from now on and
donating what I no longer use.
I am also trying to not go to any after Christmas sales...I can't promise I won't but, I am gonna try...
For the past couple of years we have put up two Christmas trees in our home.
One I decorate and the other Mr. B decorates.
Here's something you might not know about Mr. B and me.
We are kinda like Donny and Marie Osmond.
Mr. B is a little bit country
and I am a little bit rock 'n roll!
You can tell by how we each decorated our trees.
Mr. B's tree
The tree Mr. B decorates resides in the family room by the fireplace. His tree is covered in all kinds of homey ornaments. Things like birds nests, pinecones, gingerbread men. Ornaments that look homemade but are really purchased after Christmas in years past from Hobby Lobby, Target etc..
My tree? The white slim design is by nature contemporary, which I love about it.
If you remember my copycat table post from a few weeks ago you know that, if I see something I like, I file it away in my inspiration folders in hopes of someday duplicating it.
My tree this year is another example.
I had come across this photo from Apartment Therapy a year ago or so and loved the purple and brown on white.
I went with the same color scheme and shape of the ornaments they used. I didn't use any pinecones on my tree, yet. I still might. Imagine if you will, the cutest Jack Russel Terrier laying calmly under my tree. Yeah, Max was having none of that!!
While Mr. B's Tree is full of decoration, mine, in keeping with contemporary style, is sparser.
The funnest part about our two very different tress? We both love them both.
Mr.B's tree in the family room is perfect for the warm style and cozy feeling we like in that room.
While mine, in the dining room, conveys the simple elegance of that room.
I hope to get a post up this weekend showing you some of my favorite decor around the house so check back m'kay?
I leave you now with the photo of Mr. B & I that we used for our Christmas cards this year.
Have a great day!
