After much dilly-dallying, I’m finally done with my decorating! Much of the decors I’ve put up have been recycled from Christmases past. (You can see my decors from 3 years ago here.) Also, you’ve already seen my Family Christmas Tree, right? A lot of the decors, though, I have only recently acquired. So let the tour begin!
You know how it’s sometimes so bothersome to pack your usual decors to give way to holiday decors? Well, that’s exactly how I felt with my husband’s toys– these Fiat Topolino and Mini-Cooper models. So instead of agonizing over where I should store them, I thought of just adding a little whimsy into our Christmas decor. I call this The Christmas Convoy. 🙂 Hubby approves!
Meanwhile, I just realized (after all these years) that there’s a pine tree right across the street from our house. So I asked hubby to get me a few stems so I can decorate with REAL pine needles.
I have to say that from the point of view of a tropical native, decorating with fresh pine needles is really lovely. 🙂 Thank you, Mr. Pine-next-door!
Across the dining table, I’ve set up this red lantern on top of a side table made of twigs. I then filled the lantern with fresh pine leaves, pine cones and silver balls.
Meanwhile, I got these beautifully carved decorative balls from Our Home last year at half the price!
My Sagrada Familia is worth the investment.
These folkart ornaments are export overruns from Dapitan.
I’m so happy! Now I can relax and breathe in the holiday spirit!
