It’s only just beginning! Muahahaha!!!
Contrary to what most people think, the twelve days of Christmas start on Christmas and go until the Epiphany. So for us, that means leaving up the decorations, enjoying the tree a bit longer, and getting to burn all four candles *together!* for at least another nine days.
It also gives me an excuse to post pics of our Christmas decor now instead of when everyone else was. Admit it, there were too many other pretty trees to look at. You wouldn’t have paid attention to mine at least 2 weeks ago 😉
The burlap tree star was made by moi, as well as the hot glue icicle ornaments. Strips of burlap serve as garland in between the swags of fancy garland giving a nice contrast of natural and rough, yet shiny and sparkly.
The ball ornaments were from my mom, grandma, goodwill (and spray painted Heirloom White), and Target (glittery dollar spot minis).
We don’t have a mantle, so a curtain rod holds our stockings quite nicely.
Merry 3rd Day of Christmas. 🙂
