Today, I thought we would do a little Christmas, 2013, tour of the living room. You have seen most of it in bits and pieces in other posts with a few tutorials thrown in. Our living room is L shaped. The area we use for the television is probably supposed to be a dining area, but we use the whole room for living space. We just like it that way.
The big white star that hangs over the couch used to hang above our fireplace. This is the first time in almost 30 years we have not had a fireplace, so I had to "break my mold" so to speak and use things in some different ways. The white shutters that flank the star were a $5 purchase I made at the Habitat ReStore. I have a thing for shutters. Don't ask why. I couldn't tell you. I had them in my craft room for months, didn't know what I was going to do with them. As I was falling asleep one night right after Thanksgiving, it dawned on me that they would be the perfect thing to hang next to the star to fill out that wall. It had looked so blank to me, but I hadn't found anything I wanted to hang there. TaDa! Shutters. Perfect. For Christmas, I hung some of my rusty snowflakes that I have had for years and years on the long piece that moves the louvers. Super easy and it meant no more holes in the walls. Yay!
Well, it's crunch time and there is much to do, so I better get busy. Hope you enjoyed today's tour. Check out the tutorials. The Santa's Belly Candles are super cute and so inexpensive to make. Hope you are coping with the season and are on the downhill slide. I'm getting there.
Things to Remember:
Oh, you better watch out
You better not cry,
Better not pout, I'm tellin' you why
Santa Claus is coming to town.......
