Unfortunately, neither Boyfriend or I own that many Christmas decorations. We have a wreath on our front door and a few lights hung outside, but inside our biggest decoration is the tree, which is how I believe it should be...and that's why there's 8 strings of lights on it.
made last week too.
The Santa face I absolutely love. The cupcake is from Ashley who was partnered with me in an exchange last year. The Satrbucks cup I've had for a few years. I am from Seattle, the Starbucks homeland, after all. As you can tell, most of our ornaments are very very new; I wish I had a full tree's worth of ornaments but I know this kind of thing takes time.
|All I look at is our mish-mash of furniture...don't get me started.|
Etsy shop. The Elf is the newest addition to our family, Nickala. And the big bell I purchased this year so I can replicate the Joy pin that's all over pinterest.
I haven't hung our stockings because there's nowhere to hang them without the Bambinos messing with them, and I'm waiting for our personalized ones to arrive (they'll be here by Friday!)
Our decorations are lacking a certain...style. I'm all for eclectic, but we have vintage, country, cutesy, all in one small space and it's just not working for me. My hope is that I can hit the after-Christmas sales and pick some stuff up, although I'm afraid that might be difficult to do in Eastern Washington.
Overall, I don't love our decorations yet, but I'm hoping I'll look back at these memories with fondness, kind of like people who have been married for a long time look back at the first few years of their marriage when they were struggling financially and claim those were some of the best years of their lives. It could happen, right?
