Ah, the best season of the year is upon us! My house smells like cinnamon and sugar cookies, my mantle is alive with greenery and lights and my $1 after Christmas sale stockings are all monogrammed and looking lovely. The only thing missing is the smell of pine and the sparkle of our tree. We get a fresh one every year, and it was just too early to get one the day after Thanksgiving. It would be dead two weeks before Christmas! So this weekend our decor will be complete. Because the decorations are up, the boys are already getting excited about Christmas. We have two countdown calendars already, but I came across this idea on Pinterest and it was too cute to ignore.
|Our mantel this year- But it loses something in the harsh light.|
Imagine it sparkling at night instead.
(The Christmas tree and candles in my painting light up and sparkle- how cool is that?!?)
