Holiday Decor

Christmas is almost here so I thought I would share my holiday decor with you. I didn't purchase anything new this year. I just used what I already had and tried to make it look nice.  I did make a new wreath this year though. The plain wreath was given to me last year. So to decorate it this year, I purchased some small red balls at Walmart for $3. I used some silver ornaments I already had and the little beads are from a garland I already had but wasn't using for anything. The "H" was also something I had on hand. I painted it white and hung it on the wreath with some ribbon. All I spent on this wreath was $3.


I have a hard time with Christmas decorations because I like too many "Christmas styles." I love the traditional red and green style, but I also love the more elegant silver and gold combination. This year I kind of split my room and did two different styles. The perfectionist in me was fighting it and I kept going back and forth, but then I just said to myself, "You know what?! Who is really going to care?!!" This is how I decorated my entry table using stuff I had:


During our Thanksgiving vacation in WA we made darling little gingerbread houses, all red and green,  and my talented sister in-law made me that fabulous tulle wreath

And in my apothecary jars I used some small ornaments mixed with pine cones.

Now, the other side of my room I used my decor that I purchased a couple years ago. It's in grays, silvers, and golds.  I hung small wreaths from my curtain rods using ribbon. Very simple and inexpensive.

I bought my Christmas decorations a couple years ago and am proud to say I only spent $50. I gave myself a budget and stuck to it, and I have to admit I think it looks pretty great for $50.


It's a combination of stuff from Michaels, Target, and Walmart.

It looks gorgeous! I have the two different Christmas styles too. I finally broke down and bought two trees. I have the fancy peacock blue and silver ornaments on the tree upstairs and all the family, red and green decor downstairs. But I think you balanced your styles well here! And that tree for $50 is amazing!

Keelokan Italia tidak hanya dari Colosseum dan Menara Pisa saja, lho. Italia memiliki danau eksotis yang berupa hati, Lago di Scanno namanya. Pas sekali buat spot kece foto-fotomu nih.

Lake Scanno adalah danau gunung , https://wisata-kekinian.com/ berada di Abruzzo , punya seputar 3/4 dari permukaan ke dalam daerah kotamadya Villalago dan seputar 1/4 jika Scanno. Danau ini adalah lokasi yang bagus untuk pemakaian umum dari 2 kota yang disebut. Ini berawal dari tanah longsor kuno yang terlepas dari Gunung Genzana di atas yang memblok sungai Tasso dalam masa di antara 12.820 dan 3.000 tahun lalu
