Plus I think I may just have more than enough decor as it is. After my brother saw all the boxes I pulled out to decorate for Christmas he said and I quote, "I just don't understand how someone your age has so much holiday decor. It's weird. You're not 50."
Weird? Maybe. But I just love this time of year so much. Momma can't help herself. Here's what Christmas currently looks like at the Casa de Bargain Blonde.
Let's start this tour with the outside of the abode. A little garland and a red bow to add a touch of festive cheer. Purchased from Michaels.
The front door in the dark taken with the Blackberry = horrible pic quality. My apologies.
Next up we have my second ever REAL tree and I'm never turning back. I ♥ it so much! And to every one who thinks it is "so much work" to maintain: I am one of the laziest people you'll ever meet and if I can handle it, then I promise so can you.
|Don't you love the swirly ornament hooks? My aunt got them for us!|
Oops ... I almost forgot the tree topper, which is a TJ Maxx find:
Some dollar store end table decor I purchased last year:
The dining room table. A mixture of dollar store and Michael's:
My Kirkland's glitter Santa resides in the kitchen next to a CVS tree. Ho, ho, ho!
A DIY pine cone and ornament display on the coffee table. Glass holder and pine cones from Wal-Mart. Ornaments from Target dollar spot.
Sadly, we don't have a fireplace so all of our stockings are hung on the staircase with care. These are all handmade by family members:
And last but not least, I leave you with this final picture. My sad, pathetic, embarrassing display of holiday cards on my DIY card holder. Raise your hand if you have no friends!
