A little peak at Christmas

A few views of the Christmas decorating at my house.  The main colors used throughout my house for Christmas are metallics - mostly gold, silver and bronze.  I love how sparkly (technical term) everything looks against the lights.  I picked up some great bronze mesh that has some shimmer at Canton (craziest place on earth to shop til your feet fall off) - this is weaved throughout the trees and any greenery.  Downstairs, I have more muted tones, whereas my upstairs den (picture not included here) is more whimsical with blues, reds and silvers.

My mantle.  The wreath decor cost me about $13.  Dollar General ornaments and sprays.  I couldn't believe what cute stuff I found!!! Especially these funky glittered sprays in the form of leaves and feathers.  The poinsettias I got last year at Walmart for a buck a piece.  The wreath I have had for years.  

Love these rustic Wiseman

Entry Table

Living Room Tree - this is the tree that has all the kids ornaments.  I give them a new ornament each year.  They love opening the box and reminiscing about the ornaments from years past.  It also has a few of my ornaments from my childhood.  My mom started this tradition with us and when we married my brother and I got our boxes of ornaments from our childhood.  Love the tradition of putting up all these old ornaments to start the Christmas season every year...that and the healthy-sized mug of eggnog!

I'll end with one of my Santa's... he's waving goodbye y'all  :)  I have collected Santa's over the years and recently started collecting vintage-looking Snowmen/women.  Livy says this white Santa is her favorite.

That's it for the mini-holiday home tour!  Hoping your Christmas decorating is going well or DONE!
