I’m linking up today with The Nesting Place’s 2012 Christmas Tour of Homes. I kind of feel weird saying that – given that I live in a condo and it is no where near the level of tour-worthy. Nevertheless, I’m adopting The Nester’s sacred catch phrase “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful” and bedazzling up my first Christmas celebration in the brand spanking new condo (at least that’s how it still feels to me!)
Note the glass bowl in the center of the table. Can you guess what it’s stuffed with? Probably not since it’s not something us people tend to see in our everyday lives. But, my dog? (that tail whipping on the left is hers) She found that stuffing in the middle of one of her toys and generously ripped it out to give to me as a Christmas present! So, I stuffed it in that bowl with a gold ornament and called it a decoration. Thanks Kina!
I haven’t received many holiday cards, but the one’s that I have received I placed on top of my bookshelf. The owl one is from my friend who is Jewish – it says “hope you have a nice and cozy owliday season” inside… too cute!
I took a page out of The Nester’s book and folded green duct tape together to make a skinny long ribbon and then taped it to my window. I added another ribbon that I just had lying around the house to add an additional festive feel. It was a simple move, but I think it added a little fun to my otherwise plain jane window.
Do you see the green duct tape in the Christmas tree too? What about the white stuffing? Yep, I put that in the tree too. Kina went overboard on the Christmas present love. Just a touch of some pinecones and different colored lights later and I had myself a tree. (A mini tree from Whole Foods that is…)
Finally, when in doubt, just decorate the dog…
