Even though we've been at our new place a month, there's still an entire room to be unpacked (yikes!). This, of course, does not mean my Christmas decorations were relegated to said room. Priorities, people, priorities. Granted, doing a quick house tour before showing off my festive decor would probably make more sense, but we're playing catch up and a house tour looks like it won't be in the cards until 2012.
Thus, a speedy and effective Christmas decoration tour of the house of Sutherland (apologies for the slightly blurry shots. We're still trying to figure out the fancy pants camera we bought a couple months ago):
|The tree in all its glory. There were some sans Moe,|
but you know I can't resist that little guy.
|A mixture of gilded pinecones, framed Christmas artwork, ornaments |
and Christmas books from childhood.
|The wish tree from our wedding I refuse to toss.|
|Mini glitter birds to decorate the tini branches.|
|One of my favorite decorations. It's a frame my grandma put together. |
There's a Christmas art project from each of her 5 kids during their childhood
(my mom made the Santa in the middle).
|Nothing says Christmas like 3 St. Nicks and some Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris.|
|My tree is bird themed even though in real life I feel birds are rats of the sky.|
|One of my favorite ornaments. I bought a couple in Vienna a few years ago.|
They're simple and pretty.
|I love my Santa garlands. Also a find from Vienna.|
I hope you've all been having a lovely holiday season and that you are looking forward to what's to come in 2012.
