deck the halls

here is the proof that i've decorated for Christmas...
our little tree, and even a few presents

when we were engaged, Drew bought me this beautiful tree topper at one of my favorite stores {Hodgepodge} but... it really doesnt show up, so i wanted to add just a little something extra...
and really, who doesnt love feathers???

a few little sparkly ornaments hanging from the kitchen light fixture

i made these ribbon trees for our kitchen nook

and then, the one area i never seem to be happy with is the "above the cabinet" space in our kitchen, i tweak it over and over again, but its never really what i envision. sigh, oh well... here is my latest "tweak"
i'm not into garlands or greenery, so it makes "fullness" a bit more difficult, but i want it to be an eclectic mixture of all black and white antique pieces. .... i think. maybe.

i secretly wish our tree could stay up all year long... i just love it.
am i the only one???


  1. Everything looks beautiful! I love your tree!

  2. haha - only half of my space above my cabinets has been decorated for almost a year now. I'm never stasified with the way it looks!

  3. I wish my trees could stay up all year too, everything always looks so bare when they come down.

  4. I love your addition of feathers! Those ribbon trees are so cute. I really need to get to crafting!

  5. Looks so pretty! LOVE the ribbon trees!! Good job! :)
