Welcome to my 2010 Christmas Tour!! I thought that if I was going to get these pictures up, I had better get at it and get them up before Christmas! I know there were lots of linky parties the past couple of weeks, but I have missed out on them!! I didn’t do much this year, but our house is just festive enough for my likes this year!
I started by changing out my curtains. I just put some festive green ones up - - they were the curtains from our dining room in California. I love switching out my curtains. It is just a few re-clips away from a new look!!
Next came the mantle - - since I have a great new sturdy mantle this year (remember last year my mantle fell off the wall - - and this summer I found a fantastic replacement) I stuffed as much mercury glass, lights, greenery, and greenery as I possibly could!!
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care….
A few Christmas pillows on the couch, greenery over the mirror, lights and greenery wrapped around the pillars and….back by request of my kiddos: the magical hanging indoor forest in the hallway!
A small collection of mercury glass trees on the hallway table.
Simple, elegant, and easily packed up in January! I miss not doing the post tour of homes, but it sure was nice decorating in just one day and knowing that in a few simple hours it will all be taken down again!
Have a fabulous Christmas enjoying time with your friends and family!!!
