I have now finished decorating for Christmas in the living/dining room.
Because I moved here in late January of 2022, I missed decorating this apartment for the holidays last year. At the time I was getting ready to move.
Here’s the view of Christmas from just past my dining table and chairs looking onward into the living room.
The red floral picks wouldn’t stay on the tree, so I added them to the mantel instead.
Then I dug around and managed to find smaller red ornaments I’d forgotten I had and I put them on the tree.
Ivy suddenly became interested in the Christmas tree and the deer close by, so I tied those last red ornaments on with ribbon. Next year I’ll probably do that with all of the tree decorations.
Those cute little gold and silver ornament hangers I have are beautiful. But they don’t hold up if you have pets that are attracted to their shininess.
Ivy Gnawing On The Deer Antlers:
Here is Ivy gnawing on the deer antlers. Why in the world would she want to chew on the deer antlers?
I said “No, Ivy Lou!” She just looked at me and then slowly got down. I think she wanted me to know that getting down was on her own terms and not mine.
Cats are so nosy.
If I wake up one morning before Christmas and those deer antlers are chewed up, I will be able to point to the culprit.
I added three wood trees to the top of my electric stove in front of the fireplace. It’s been awhile since I had a mantel to decorate for the holidays.
Above is one side of the dining room. It is the wall area that leads to the hallway. And below is the other side close to the kitchen.
I’ve already shown you the little red tree vignette. But here is another photo of it in case you missed it.
Next I’ll be showing you the kitchen decorated for Christmas. It was easy to do with all the red and white I already have in there.
