Christmas gear


Last Christmas by Wham! on Grooveshark
As I mentioned, I am not one for decorating for Christmas. Despite that, we have a shitload of Christmas items so that by the time I'm finished, it's as if Christmas spewed over the living room and dining room. I don't decorate around things, I remove my standard stuff and replace with Christmas items. We even move a lamp and chair from the living room to make the tree stand alone.

I take care of the indoor decor with the exception of the front window, and MFD takes care of the front window and the exterior. Here's some of our decor. When preparing for this post I realized I'm not good at taking photos of Christmas stuff. HO HO HO MOFOS.

Dining room:
Living room - entertainment center
Living room - front window/table area
Living room - entry table. The bubble light candelabra (Vermont Country Store) and sign (gift from Lori) are new this year and I love both. 
Tree
Exterior - missing some wreaths and some small trees and candy canes. Ho ho no.

Good tidings of comfort and joy, friends.
Today we're heading from Miami to Disney and I have access to my beloved mistress Instagram again so I'll surely be blowing that up all weekend along with facebook. I've been to Disney a lot, but I've never seen it done up for Christmas. I cannot wait! Have a great weekend.

  2. Fabulous pictures. Love the Vermont Store find, the Grinch sign and of course the table runner I made you. Your home looks fabulous. Disney at Christmas is probably a dream.

  22. I love alllllll of your decor!!!! There is so much and it is so festive! My mom painted one of those ceramic trees with the lights when I was little and it sits on her hutch in her dining room all year because "it is good luck to leave out one Christmas item year round" according to her family.
