This is day two of the Christmas décor for 2014
and it's all about our Christmas tree. I hope you
enjoy looking around our cozy home for the holidays.
Our tree is a small artificial frosted blue spruce. We bought it for our second Christmas
together and have loved it ever since. This year I have wrapped it with a natural jute
garland and decked it out with a new string of Martha Steward Star lights. There
is also two small light strings with some white mesh under the tree giving it
that amazing glow.
I was going to make one of these burlap gift sacks until I found this one at HomeSense
for only $5.99. I thought that was a great price considering how much time it would take
to make. I quickly learned why the price was so low, it needed to be aired out on the porch.
They are made in India and I assume they got a little musty smelling somewhere on their
journey, but it's good now.
My daughter's birthday is right after Christmas, so there is always a few presents
left under the tree that are wrapped in birthday paper instead of for Christmas day.
