holidays are here…

I hope everyone here in the US had a great Thanksgiving holiday. I’m in the tail end of a massive project I’ve been working on for the past few months, so I’m really looking forward to this coming Christmas for a much needed break (I had to work over the weekend… boo…) Perhaps it’s this anticipation that is driving me, but for some reason, I’m just really excited about this holiday season. I also am loving the fact that there is so much great color going on right now in decorations. The covers of the December Martha Stewart and Living Etc, both are great examples, and actually are inspiration of what my christmas decor will probably look like. For the past few years, I’ve been fascinated with the pop-y colors of vintage glass ornaments , especially from the 50’s and 60’s. I used to put them on a white faux christmas tree, but last year, I put them on branches and placed it in a vase I had. Here is a pic:This year, however, I probably will go back to a more traditional tree, as I picked one up on sale over the weekend… (it’s also faux and white…) I have a Tord curtain displayed on my stairwell, basically as artwork, and have layered it with christmas lights, which looks great during parties and adds a nice ambient glow. It will look especially nice this year since all my new Tord /Target goodies will match! How are you going to decorate for the holidays this year?
