Christmas At My House

 Can you tell I have Christmas on my mind??  That's all the last couple of posts have been about!  That's okay, because after all Christmas is just 4 days away!


I wanted to show you some of the things I have done in our apartment for Christmas.  I really haven't done as much as I would like.  A lot of my stuff is still packed in boxes, since we are living here temporarily, and there just isn't a lot of spaces to set things.

But that's okay, right?  Easy clean up after the holidays!

My husband grew up with non-traditional Christmas Stockings made out of tube socks, since we won't be flying home until a week after Christmas I decided to attempt making some for our little family.  
They are like little Christmas overalls!

 Since there is no fireplace here I purchased a wooden dowel, wrapped
 ribbon around it & hung it on a lonely wall.

I put little ruffles on the 'arms' and backside of mine & my daughters because we are girly-girls!

 I think they turned out cute, and will be one of those things our kids will love when they get pulled out of the box each year for Christmas!

Remember the post I did right before this one about using my leftover cranberries from Thanksgiving?  Well, I decided to string them & drape them from our dining table chandelier with a few ornaments I didn't put on the tree this year.

Disclaimer:  I did not pick out the outdated brass chandelier, it came with the apartment!



There you have it - my festive cranberries!

  1. What great ideas. Your place looks just perfect - I am preparing for a move myself and the cardboard boxes/Christmas tree decor is really not working! Merry Christmas!!!
