I want to welcome you to my 2009 Christmas home tour. I did this last year and wanted to show you some of the different things that I have done with just a couple of additions. If you read here earlier you will know that I have added some pink things to our Christmas and the porch is all decked out in pink from our wreath to the small Christmas trees that are on either side of the door.
I painted this sled that I have had around forever to make it match our porch decor. The sticks oking out of my trees are from my folks woods in Minnesota. I sprayed them with adhesive and sprinkled pink glitter on them and I like how they look in my little trees. I will have a post later about my skates and the snow sign, but they too are all decked out in pink glitter.
This is the tree when you walk in the front door. I love how tall it is but also slim enough to fit in the space nicely. I put it up on a box so that it even has more height and goes clear to the top of the stairs.
These poinsettias are under the tree to fill the empty space from placing the tree on a box. I picked them up at Wal-Mart the for cheap, cheap, cheap. The big one is huge and I have not seen any that nice for the price. Hopefully, I can keep them alive a couple more weeks. Yikes!
Here is the garland going up the stairs. For years it was a simple green garland with lights, until a couple of years ago I was at Hobby Lobby after Christmas and ran into the 90% off Christmas sale and pick up some garland that had a bunch of fancy stuff on it and I just added it to my plain green one and "wa-lah" a big fancy garland.
Here is my last picture of the day. This is on my coffee table in the living room. Again, the trees are a Hobby Lobby 90% off find. You really have to go in Hobby Lobby after Christmas you will find some really great stuff for a steal. If you missed my pink Christmas tour you can check it out here.
