I was really excited to decorate this Christmas. Last year we in full wedding mode so our house decorations were not a priority. Not to mention we were spending Christmas alone in Seattle. We got back to Seattle from our honeymoon on December 19th last year. I had originally said that I didn't want to mess with a tree but, once we got back, I felt that I needed one to make it feel homey and like Christmas. There wasn't much available that time of year so we got a bit creative. Now that we are in Texas I can decorate the way I really want to. Merry Christmas!!!
This is my favorite Christmas decoration. My mom and BethAnn made this for me. (I actually gave them the idea with blog searching, but I love love love it. They did an awesome job!) It had to be the focal point of my mantel.
