Holiday Decorations

Better later than never, right?!

We went the less is more route this year, opting for a smaller tree and fewer decorations. Here's what I came up with....

This lantern usually sits on the deck but for the holidays it found a new home in the entry. A little fake snow some mini nutcrackers and the lantern was ready for Christmas.

My sister knit these tiny stockings for us so they needed a prime spot. Their holiday home was on the ledge above our TV.

The table-top tree is my favorite...

(the happy birthday banner above the door was up for Ian's party...but some might consider it holiday decor)

The mantle is a totally useful space that I don't always take full advantage of it; and it was the perfect place for the tree. A couple of faux sheepskin (to look like snow)....a vintage sled...a tree on top...classic red and white stockings makes for a sweet little Christmas vignette. 

Of course I had to put lights on the deck and the window lights that look like candles.

How did you decorate this year?

What we're reading....

I think we have a problem with magazine subscriptions....the picture shows only 10 of the magazines we get each month.

Anyone else have too many subscriptions to count? I blame the amazing deals on

Update: I got an email this morning that amazon is having a $5 subscription sale....aww man, I'm in trouble!
