Hello my friends. I am back to post the decorations that I have in the family room. I hope you enjoy!

Again I went with silver and white. Last year I did our credenza behind the sofa with this winter white theme. I loved it so much I decided to do all the decorations with the same theme.  The two candle sticks on the left were purchased at Family Dollar, needless to say they are cheaply made but pretty. The votives sitting on top are Marshall finds. I do not remember where I found the white bird, it had to be Marshall's or Ross. I had the trees for years evidently because I just found them again........LOL. The angel I gave a make over, she was very tattered so I made her pretty again. The angel to the right of the center angel is a yard sale find, I added fluffy feathers to her wings. The silver candle stick and votive are from Marshall's. I do not remember where I purchased the reindeer, I keep thinking it is a yard sale find.

The only changes I made on the entertainment center were the two candle sticks with the votives. Both are Marshall's finds.  I added blue and silver glittered ornaments to the milk glass pieces I already had on display.

This is the credenza I decorated last year in the winter white theme. I used the same green garland and added some of the same picks and ornaments I had last year. Last year I had a glass Santa in the middle, but I decided not to use him this year. Instead I went with a angel theme. The votives are Dollar Tree finds and I found the two glass candle sticks at Goodwill. The two lamps I added bling to the shades because I plan to replace them after Christmas.  The two silver lamps are yard sale finds as well. They 8:00 for the pair.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  At least in our house it very much does. I know Thanksgiving is not even here yet, but we will not be home much of December. I wanted to get the decorations done before we leave!

This is the Christmas tree in the sun room. I am keeping it simple this year. 

I will be back tomorrow with pics of the decoration in the family room.

I am beginning to gather all my Christmas decorations. I may start the process of decorating next week. We are going to Ky for Thanksgiving week.  When we come back from Ky we are leaving for Jamaica. 
I want to get my decorating done before I go to Jamaica so I will have a Christmasy spirit to come home to.
I have been making some of the decorations I am using this year.   The  Christmas canvas are DIY using mostly from Dollar Tree, and Big Lots.  Without further a do:

We had a community Yard Sale!

This is what I did Saturday.... we had a community neighborhood sale. I tried to talk my hubbie into watching the sale so I could go........I finally convinced him in the late afternoon, so I missed all the good stuff..... His comment was " we are trying to get rid of junk" not bring more "junk in".  LOL.

Good Morning my friends. It is 4:00 am and God only knows why I am awake this early. Since I retired, I have found there are nights that I do not sleep at all or I am awake at this time. Instead of laying in bed and tossing and turning, I just get up and try to do something productive.
I did some changes on the little black cabinet in the hall that leads to the Master Bedroom. I changed out the vignette in there a bit. I added a few more items and put some greenery in the little cream ware basket.  I thought I would share the changes. Hope you enjoy!
