REARRANGING FOR CHRISTMAS

My living room usually look like this through out the year


But now that the holidays are here (and I had to pull out my mammoth of a tree), I had to rearrange the space to accommodate the new decor

(It's not that big of a change since the room is the size of most walk-in closets!)



For my coffee table, I decided to try out a whimsical centerpiece that consist of branches from my backyard and some ornaments. I plan to spray paint the branches heirloom white when I have a chance.



The end table that usually consist of these pieces


Is now home to my favorite holiday find...glass reindeer's from the dollar tree


A simple throw and a few good magazines is the perfect addition to the room for some relaxation on the sofa and quiet time away from the kids



That's my living room decorated for the holidays. Have you started decorating? What small or big changes have you made in your home?


Stay tuned because there is more to come!

I'm linking this up to Centsational Girl's Ornament Party

OK! Now I can really write a post, I wanted to be the first! HA! Being the Home Decorator that I am! I'm going to be moving my BIG potted plant, and replace it with my new $25 Target 6ft Pre-Lit Tree. Jealous Much that you didn't get this steal. Ha! You should have had your SIL seek out the Black Friday specials. Rumor also has it that Rite Aid has some trees as well. But I wouldn't recommended! Then I'm going to decorate my mantle with something special from a little boutique called Bigz Lotz! I'm going for a "Vintage Look!" Then I'm going to make me a wreath with some room temperature "HOT" glue. And I'm also going to take my old Christmas Tree and place it in my current unfinished dining room. And there is where Santa will leave us our goodies this year. Stay tuned for my Christmas Updates! Happy Holiday, SIL

It looks so pretty, and I LOVE your centerpiece. I like it the way it is and I don't think it needs spray paint, but I'll probably still like it if you paint it :-)

Love your vase with the branches and ball ornaments!! I have a vase very much like yours. I may have to try that!

Dayka said...

I did that branch last year and love it so much I plan on doing it again this year. I finally got the majority of my tree up tonight, but I ran out of ornaments, so my branch will have to wait until later in the week. Your tree looks great--love the colors.

Love your arrangement. Sometimes it is fun to do something a little nontraditional for Christmas! Hope you will join me for Deck the Halls on Tuesday!

Your tree is pretty and so is the centerpiece.

I'm hearting your lamps...I'm in need of some and just can't figure out what to do.
Anyhoo...I start with the outside and always work in...the boys know...one night before the 5th they go to bed with no Christmas in the house and then BAM! they wake up to everything decorated...I love that...and they do too...I usually leave so ornmaments to put up and they love it!

The vase and branches is whimsical, love it. Show it again if you paint the branches, I've painted a few branches Heirloom White myself!

Thank you! I was looking @ yours thinking how symmetrical everything looks. For a minute I wasn't even going to post this, since it looks so bad on camera--it didn't photograph well to me! I had all of these photos to give you the WHOLE picture, lol. Uh, the dish I'm going to have to keep for myself, and we're hooking up when you return a phone call!!!! :) I want to hit the Estate Sale this weekend.

Many of today's modern casino games are just the latest in a long line of gambling activities that date back to the earliest records of civilization. Gambling artifacts have been uncovered from ancient societies in China and Italy as well as in Egypt, where ivory dice dating to the period before 1500 B.C. have been discovered. More than 3000 years later, a more modernized pair of dice was being used in private gaming halls throughout 18th century England in the earliest form of today's popular game of craps.genting malaysia
