Christmas Decor.........................and lots of it!!!

Here is 90% of my christmas decor. I tried to keep it simple this year as I wanted to clean things out and not have so much clutter. I spent 2 hours going through my attic in October sorting through what I was going to keep and what I would sell in my craft sale. I even still have 2 totes up in the attic that I didn't even get out but couldn't bare to get rid of the stuff just yet. I made $300 from my craft sale and used that to buy my hubby a leather recliner for graduating from Police College.

The first picture is of my table in the sunroom! This is all I did out there this year. Usually I put a tree up out there but since we aren't entertaining I opted out of doing that to create more work when it comes to taking everything down.

My tree, I had it all decorated at the beginning of November with all prim decor. Looked at it over and over and just didn't like it. I needed some sparkle on it. Knowing that I purchased and received lots of beautiful vintage bulbs I decided to change my tree. I added silver beads, vintage bulbs then my daughter and I went up town to see if they still sold tinsel. Can you believe they still do!!! I was so happy! I came home put some tinsel on it and now I look at it with memories of how our tree used to look when I was little! Now I don't like the topper it will be changed next year for sure! But I love just a little sparkle on it!

Well that about does it for my decorating for this year! A lot less than last year but that's ok, one I won't have so much take down and two I enjoy it much more this year!

Wishing you all a very merry christmas! Enjoy time with family & friends! And most of all be safe!

Until next time
