Christmas Tree Decorating 101

Oh dear -- why, oh why am I not one of those 
super-organized
people with gifts purchased and wrapped,
house cleaned and decorated??



But, let's just accept it, stop 
beating myself up
and have a few more Hershey kisses while I ponder that,
shall we??? :)


We finally got our tree up and mostly decorated!
Here's my extremely valid excuse!
Last April/May when we had the floors done,
the guys had to jackhammer out the
concrete subfloor!
A ton of that concrete dust and debris
floated down to the storage room below, covering
everything in a very thick layer of 
yucky, icky-sticky dust, bits of concrete, etc!
So, unless everything was totally covered (and it wasn't)
that crud got everywhere and messed up my decorations!
A lot of garland and wreaths had to be tossed -- there's no
way without the hose (and it's too cold for that)
to get that dust out!


So, this year, we went for a different look on the mantle!
Can you say white feather boas??
So floaty and soft -- Maddy says it reminds her of snow
(yes, she's praying for snow and lots of it!)!


Maddy and I love it and, after all, our opinions count the most!
We still have few a few more things to pull out and dust off.
One of these days
(maybe Dec. 24th), we'll be ready!  :)

I completely feel your pain! I am more and more unorganized every passing year! There is simply not enough time in the day!

Your tree is sooo cute and I especially love your fireplace and your funky stockings! So cute! You gals did a great job!

You still have time! Sometimes less is more when decorating.

We're praying for lots of snow too! Looking fabulous. Sorry about all the dust. You both did a great job and the feather boas are the perfect touch!
