Yesterday I put away all of the Christmas decorations and realized I never posted a "home tour." Though, let's be honest, I haven't done a lot of posting recently. Oops. Carrying on!
The tree, "Harold."
Here's the tree, whom was named "Harold." Harold (Hark!) is a two-foot or so rosemary tree who smelled delightful and didn't give me an allergic reaction. He's wearing an LED battery powered strand of Martha Stewart Lights, and (count them) 2 ornaments--one I made a few years ago and a sugarplum fairy from childhood. I LOVE rosemary trees--they smell amazing, don't cause me to get sick, and are incredibly easy to take care of. And, post Christmas he has a future in some savory dishes. Win and win.
My favorite--the "hearth"
My favorite part! I loved the red and white lights in the mantle, and the red and gold theme. #usingwhatIhad While I put away everything already, the lights are staying in the fireplace, because well, they're happy.
Christmas Card Station
Haha, it was as I was writing this post I realized what I forgot to take pictures of, which is unfortunate!
- The open window that frames the kitchen (so I can look out from the sink into the dining room) was lined with lighted greenery garland and two striped stocking at the corners.
- The entertainment shelves were appropriately made festive with knicks and knacks (bowl of ornaments, ornaments on frames, etc.)
- The staircase had lighted garland running up the banister
Today I am looking forward to completing a massive Goodwill trip, and getting home 100% back to put together.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year friends!
