Hehe, if you look in the mirror you see a sans decorated tree in the above photo, and then with ornaments in the photo below. I added some extra snowflake ornaments to even further winterfy this table/quasi mantel. Those white "snowballs" are part of my summer woven ball filler, but i thought they could work for winter grouped in this way.
This is the maiden voyage for this tree, and she ain't so bad. Much narrower than our other tree, yet much better for the space. And she went up in literally one, two, three....as opposed to our usual assembly line of "find correct branch color. separate into piles. fluff each branch. add to tree. repeat. repeat. repeat" over an hour or so. Not to mention then string the lights.
I was suckered into spending 10 bucks on this sparkly winter beauty. And by suckered, i mean i saw it, and i needed it. Darn you, big lots and your aisles of seasonal goodness!
Continuing with the white, we adorn the outside. And by we, i mean the boyfriend. No way I'm going onto the roof for those dormers!
Frosty aglow and gentlemanly.
His big lot friends (who miraculously have lasted through 4 years and were 8 bucks for the pair). That left guy looks like he's up to no good with that smirk.
Because we're on the corner (hence the name of this blog) S thinks it means the lights need to span the entire perimeter...
And circle the entire house. He threatens to add lights to the bump out (which you can kind of see above the sunroom) and to around the detached garage. I fear it would be bordering on Griswald-esque if that takes place.
I promise there's nothing green being projected on the house-that's got to be coming from the street light. In case you were wondering if that green glow was purposeful. Surely not on my neutrally decorated half Jewish house. Surely not.
Don't you love seeing other people's lights up? It's the internet equivalent of driving around aimlessly-think of the gas we're saving!
