The tour begins in our main living area. Our living room is not large, but it is very cozy with the fireplace being the focal point of the room. When you enter through the front door, there is a small entryway with a rustic cabinet that has old windows for the doors. It holds our crystal because we don't have enough cabinet space in the kitchen. The decorations change with the season and here is how it looks this Christmas.
There are two small trees in the living area. I gave up large trees years ago due to lack of space and time. Small trees are much easier to decorate and place. With 6 grandsons under the age of 9, three of them under three, it is nice to have them up off the floor. Grandma does have lots of stuff sitting around and the temptation for little hands is great.
The mantle is decorated in a winter wonderland theme using lots of white lights, snow flakes (Dollar Tree), candles, and mirrored trees. If you have not made yourself a regular at the Dollar Tree, do so now. There are such awesome decorations to be had for very little money. The mirrored trees came from there 3 years ago. I had seen them at a high end boutique gift shop for $30.00 each. I scored mine for $1.00 each. Yahoo!
Thanks for joining me tonight. Hope you got some decorating ideas and tomorrow I will show you how to make those lovely little trees. Next, we will visit the dining and kitchen area.
Things to Remember:
My goal is to make memories for our family and grandchildren. Yes, it is a lot of work, but so worth it to me. It's all in the details.
