The Christmas tree

Here is our tree all decorated in the house.  It is a Virginia pine.  Hopefully it will still be green in 3 weeks for Christmas day.  It has been soaking up a lot of water every day.  We have no theme for decorating.  The last couple of years I did 2 trees - one for me to decorate and one for the kids.  This year we have a mix match  
of everything on one family tree. 

 I had to add some extra pictures of our family room and kitchen because I took the day off work today and the kids were at school and the opportunity to have the counter totally clean and free of clutter needed to be documented!

One last Christmas project was these wreaths I made and hung on our front windows.  I used plain grapevine wreaths, wrapped with garland from Dollar tree, and I added silver poinsettia ornaments (from Dollar tree too.)

I have wanted to do wreaths like this since I saw these at the Guenther House in San Antonio last year

Anna, LOVE your tree and wreaths! How did you hang the wreaths - what were they attached to? Just gorgeous - and I wanted to tell you that I loved your master bed makeover - truly beautiful!

Your tree looks great. I love your kitchen and breakfast room and I agree - it is wonderful when the island is clutter free isn't it? Almost makes you want to just stand in awe of it doesn't it?
thanks for sharing- love all the decor.
