The garland is back up and ready for it's 2010 debut! I can't believe Christmas is only a week away!! We are finally, I'm happy to say finally ready for it's arrival. So I thought I would take some time and show the Dining Room and Living room of the house.
As I said last time, I am currently obsessed with balls. (Cindy, get your mind out of the gutter) This is what I do with them. They fill jars and containers....
and get hung from Chandeliers.
This is the view from behind the Dining room table into the Living room. I got that milk glass plate at a garage sale recently for $5.00 and could kick myself for not buying the second one she had as well.
I did something a little different this year for a tree topper. I hung the music sheet snowflakes from fishing line and suspended them above the tree from the ceiling. I will admit, this is the only benefit to popcorn style ceilings. (no holes from the tacks after Christmas)
The tree has a bird theme. Here are a few close-ups of some of the ornaments....
And, at last the infamous garland. I couldn't quite get it the same as I had it originally without taking it completely apart and putting it back together and I just was not going to do that! I am happy with it for the most part and no one else would know it all came crashing down last week if I didn't tell them.
It has lots and lots of snowflakes all over it and many of them hanging from the branches and from crystal garlands. The effect is quite pretty in the day when the light is shining through them, ans also at night with the sparkling lights.
I hope you enjoyed my little tour. Now I am going to go make a cup of cocoa and and read a good book!
