I'd be lying if I said I didn't let my sickness slow me down, because that freight train wasn't stoppin' for nobody! *said in a southern accent I do not have* It has taken me about two weeks longer than I wanted to decorate my house and really feel like it's ready for the girls or for Christmas period. You better believe these decorations will stay up past Christmas and I don't want to hear anything about it! haha I've been wanting to post pics of the house finished, so what better way than a Photography Friday?
For the first time I jumped out of my glittery silver & red Christmas and ventured into the world of shabby/chic burlap, gold and red Christmas that I have been drooling over for years. I figured that being in the Alaskan wilderness gave me at least some excuse to try something new...I mean we go out into the wilderness and cut down our own freaking tree for crying out loud. Correction, D goes out and cuts it down. I went one year, picked a tree in a crazy hard spot and have been banned from going every since. Either way, we get the best looking Charlie Brown tree that will fit in our house! Side note, these are the most aggressive and well protected trees I have ever come into contact with. They have razor sharp needles that will shoot out at you and stab your soul! Ouch!
I decided that shabby chic meant I had to DIY a lot, so throughout the house there are handmade pinterest wins and epic fails. Let's see how good my camera skills can be to hide the fails?!
Here's how I decked the halls this year!
