More on Christmas Decorating

It seems this year some of my Christmas decor is an ever changing thing. So, I'm going to share some more pics of some of my decorations. Please excuse some of the blurry pics, I was in a hurry to take them and didn't want to get out the tripod.

This is the left side of our piano. The "joy" canvas is one I painted myself with the only nativity scene I left out this year.


Here's a view of the whole piano area. I put fake greenery from Hobby Lobby over the pics on the wall. The glass hurricane holds some green balls with some pine cones from my inlaws yard and my red candle holders.




Our tree. David and Trey decorated it by themselves this year and they did a great job. My tree skirt is just some red fabric with a snowflake sheer fabric. The sheer is just laid on top of the red and just tucked around the tree. I didn't sew this at all. And I love the way it looks!

It's hard to see in the pic but the candle is on a beautiful red plate I found at Ross for about $3, love it! Just some pine cones from the yard and an extra ornament.

This is one of the shelves on our bookcases. I love this look, it's got a clean but rustic feel. I don't have a clue where we got the sign, but the glass hurricane is from Ross for about $6 and more pine cones from the yard. The green snowflakes were from Target for $1 and our Yankee Candle.

Another pic of the mantle. The glass candle holders are from Hobby Lobby $5 for the pair (on sale). The big one was a HL buy from years ago. The red garland in it was from Target for about $3. The silver vase was from Ross a few bucks, all the greenery is from HL on sale, as well as the green balls. The apothicary jars are also from Ross, about $10 ea and I LOVE them!

Ok, so that's about it in my living room. I've really started to realized that I like a more natural look for Christmas decorating, ie the pine cones and greenery. Not as much of the usual Christmas decorations. I like the rustic with the pretty.

I would love to hear what style you prefer in your decorating, please share!

I'm writing this post as part of the Christmas 2010 Tour of Homes put on by the Nester.
