That book is called Hanakkah, Shmanakkah and is meant to be like The Night Before Christmas, complete with a scrooge. Love decorating with books!
Aglow in blues.
The cutest snow woman ever, all her sparkly bits and feathers!
Her tall friend is a yard sale find from a few years back, and the little stumpy guy on the floor I took from my mom.
Since we don't have a fireplace (yet) this is where we hang our stockings. They don't jive with the blue color scheme, but these stockings are staying. S's was made when he was a baby, and that little paw is Sunday's. So cute! I like stuffing nonsense in between, so these are little seasonal stuffed animals.
This guy's wearing a yarmulke!
Close up of the garland, which is where i'm draping our holiday cards this year. I just think the picture is the epitome of our home for the season-a letter to Santa with a Jewish star.
The eyesore tv stand, but just so you can see where the jars below sit. Still loving all my thrifted glassware.
The few items purchased this season were the blue ornament garland which i cut up to fill the jars, and the silver styrofoam ornaments as filler. Do you spy the dreidel? The gift ornaments and the snow tinged pincones from the mega free haul.
The real reason why i wanted to go the blue and white route! Mwah ha ha!
I can never get a good picture of this space! That's free tree-I knew i'd make a spot for her! I think she fills this space better than the menorah, which is now on half moon table (shown in first photo.)
Sunroom and bathroom tweaked:
So thank goodness i'm done decorating...although we haven't done the outside or the tree yet. That's a many hour process that i'm not looking forward to. What about you, anyone decorate the tree as a Christmas Eve tradition, or do you have it up longer? More importantly, when do you take it down?
