Just a bit of Christmas from my little apartment. I haven’t decorated every space. Just a little here and there suits me in this smaller place.
I enjoy decorating for the holidays, but I’ve started scaling back. When I moved to Oklahoma from Texas, I had a lot of Christmas decorations and a full size but skinny tree. I no longer have the tree and I’ve given away many of the Christmas decorations.
Photos of the pupsters when they were just pups. And a wreath I made years ago.
This wreath was covered with a long muslin strip that has rough edges. Then I added various bits of lace, ribbon and other embellishments. Lastly I added burlap in order to hang it.
And Abi would be put out if there was a photo shoot without her being starred in it. So here is Abi in all her glory.
She is my sweet beautiful girl, Abi Rose.
Charlie shuns the camera and is nowhere to be found. I don’t blame him. Because I kind of feel the same way!
I have taken to putting a bunch of small Christmas trees of various varieties in this old vintage suitcase for some years now. So I suppose it has become my tradition.
I need to find some tiny wreaths to go over the sheep’s heads in the old vintage pickup so they won’t feel left out during the holidays.
And of course, candlelight. Flickering in the dimness on this gray and rainy day. There’s nothing quite like a grouping of candles to cozy up your home any day of the year. And especially at Christmas time.
I surrounded the candles with sea shells as a filler around the vanilla candles. Sometimes I add marbles or beans or some other filler.
What are some of your holiday traditions?
