More Christmas Decor?... Or Are You Bored?

It's a bit overwhelming, what with the myriad of decorations people are sharing this festive time of year. But if you know me... I can't get enough! I had a bit of quiet time (which is truly a rarity this close to the big day!) so I'd thought I'd share some of my pictures with you.

It is always fun and challenging the first time decorating a newly renovated room, especially at Christmas time. I have to admit though... I'm quite pleased with the results :^) A bonus too was the only new thing I bought this year was the blue ornaments on the tree. Everything thing else I already had!

 
Love these icy looking wreaths in the window. When they sun happens to peak out, they really sparkle!

 
The mantle turned out quite woodsy. Didn't really plan it that way...just kept adding stuff until I was happy with the look.


A closer look at the display shelf above the closet. Was up and down that ladder about a hundred times until I got it just right!






 
A couple of my favourite tin signs: the Magic Christmas was a gift from Bonnie last year, and the Joy (which was also my hubby's Mom's name) has cute little vintage Santas on it.

I hope everyone has had as much fun with your decorating as I did. From what I've seen on your blogs I think you have! I have even stolen an idea or two... do you think that means I will get a lump of coal in my stocking this year??
