Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

It’s Christmas Eve eve!  :)  Which means only two days till Christmas, so it’s time to share our Christmas tree details and some night shots.  If you follow me on facebook you will have noticed a sneak peek of our new couches!  I’ll be back after Christmas to show you more pics of the new couches and a full reveal!  Meanwhile, here is our beautiful Christmas tree.


That was a couple of weeks ago before I got all the presents under there.  Here it is now:



You can also see our Christmas card display.  Last night I rearranged them and added a second ribbon on the opposite side of the doorway so I could fit more cards in. 


This year I only added a few ornaments.  Like this little owl one that I got from a coworker… isn’t it cute?


But I did add some tinsel loops and glitter ball picks.  I saw a tree in Lowes Creative Ideas magazine that was wrapped with red ribbon and had these gold sequin loops stuck in the branches.  I loved it and set about trying to recreate that look.  I never found any loops (apparently they were sold at Lowes, but I never looked there, duh!) so I bought gold wired tinsel and made my own version.


The gold and red glitter ball picks came from Michaels.



Ah, I just love my Christmas tree, especially at night with the glow of the tree and the glow from the Christmas lights on the porch.  It’s the most wonderful time of the year!


Now I have to get ready to host our Christmas lunch.  More parties tomorrow and Christmas day with some relaxing and “It’s a Wonderful Life” thrown in there for good measure. :)  Hope your holidays are merry and bright!
