Christmas Peeks

I’m calling the Christmas decorating done for this year.  I went a lot simpler and put out less stuff, but I like it.  I still have a bit of fluffing to do, moving things around a bit, but thought I’d share a little peek of what is going on around here.

I totally redid the little tree I put in our master bedroom, from whimsical looking with bright colored ornaments, to something neutral and more natural looking.  I bought some ornaments from bloggy friends and there’s burlap involved, too.

I’m also waiting on a new duvet from Pottery Barn {white} so I can have a nice neutral, Winter look to our bedroom.

I have one other thing I want to add to our kitchen for the counter, which I hope to pick up tomorrow.

I’ll share a bit of a Christmas home tour next week, once I’m satisfied with how everything is looking and can get good pictures.

Did I say I kept it simple?

Looks great so far, gal! I would love to make my tree more neutral, but my family would have fits! I have a table top faux tree that will be in the dining room on the buffet, and I will make it neutral!! Can't wait!

Have a lovely weekend
Hugs,
Becky

Your decorations are looking lovely. I also like a more neutral look these days and a more natural Christmas theme. Love the burlap and angel wings.

Keep us posted.

Done and it's not even Dec 1st yet? You are so quick to toss those pumpkins out girl! LOL
Loved seeing what you are doing this year!

Charm Bracelet Diva said...

You and me both. Less really is more. And so much easier! It's all looking great!

It looks beautiful so far, Kathy! I think we are all going a little more simple as the years go on and the kids are young adults. Who need Mickey Mouse ornaments unless they hold too many memories? I'd rather have their handmade ones anyway. I guess by simplifying, we have more time for the important things and a cleaner, more simple look is not only popular but less to put away!

Can't wait to see more!

It all looks festive and pretty! I tried to simplify, too, but was unsuccessful...I just pulled all the decorations out slowly, rather than all in one day!
