Last week I shared my dining room all decked out for Christmas along with a little tale about a little girl who loved Christmas very, very much.
Today I’m bringing you more Christmas Decor – the Living Room. I’m down to basically these two rooms to decorate. The ‘little’ business I am running has taken over and it’s a struggle to even get these two rooms presentable at the same time! 😀 So if you see a stray thread or pair of scissors or a computer peeking out of the corner it’s all because a business is being run in this house – and if you wonder why you don’t see some rooms you might have seen in the past, just know they are a complete pile of ‘stuff’ and you really don’t wanna see them 😀
(actually I have a keeping it real post planned for early in the new year just to show you that just beyond the borders of all the pretty shots is real life!)
A lot of red plaid found its way into my decor this year. I bought blanket scarves like a madwoman as soon as they hit the shelf this fall. I love them so much! I have yet to actually wear one as a scarf and I’m not sure If I will get around to that or not. They are rather large and I feel a bit overwhelmed when trying to wear one around my neck.
My beloved deer pillow – purchased a couple years ago from Craftberry Bush.
Pom-pom wreath from Jo-anns. When I saw it a few weeks ago marked 60% off I couldn’t resist. I had not extra time to make one and I figured for the price I could hardly buy the yarn. I still want to make my own someday though – just so I can say ‘I made it’.
My glittery moose is still a fav after years of tucking him in here and there every Christmas. This year he came out of storage with an antler detached. A bit of hot glue fixed him right up and I really hope he’s good for quite a few more years.
Take time this year to relax a bit. Ponder the true meaning of Christmas – the babe in the manger. And beyond the manger to the real reason He came – so die and come to life again – conquering death – and save us for all eternity.
Praise His Name!
In all your vast concerns in life,
In all your busy toil,
Be sure that you forget not God,
Who gives to you your all.
In all the gift giving, food making, feasting, laughter, memory-making, love, games, and traditions remember God created, God cared, God loved, God sent, God came, God redeemed.
God Bless us every one. -tiny Tim
