I have to admit that I like Christmas. I don't believe in exchanging presents or having crowded parties, though; if anything, to me, the Holidays are a time for introspection.
I hadn't had a Christmas tree for years; ever since my mom passed away, we really didn't feel like doing anything at all. This is my first Christmas here and my very first one with David, too, so it was exciting to get our little tree and put it up together. It felt like the beginning of something, you know :).
We found cheap, yet nice ornaments at Walmart; we bought all of them there, except for the transparent balls that I've filled with paper and pompoms.
Look! My mother-in-law bought Christmas stockings for our kitties, hehe.
As for the rest of the house, we haven't done much. But I kind of went nuts with Christmas vintage books that I wanted to have displayed somewhere in the house. The oldest one is from 1849 :p.
I placed 2 on the counter top in the kitchen.
And most of the rest in our bedroom.
I don't know if you can consider this a proper Christmas decoration, but these books mean a lot to me, so I like seeing them on our dresser :).
I'm planning to do something on our front windows, but I'll leave that for a later post ;).
What about you? Have you started decorating your home yet? (If you care about the Holidays at all)
Do you enjoy this time of the year? ;)
