Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Welcome to our 2011 Christmas Decoration Tour!


When you arrive at our condo you'll see our front door wreath...


This is our entryway tree. The theme is "beach" and I just love it!


Here is a closer look at some of my favorite ornaments from our beach tree. Some of these I made and some I bought.


In our living room are our window lights and our main tree.


The main tree doesn't have a theme. It's just an assortment of Christmas ornaments -- some that are old and some that are new.


I love our mish-mash tree. This year I'm going to buy a better topper and some new red and green balls an after-Christmas sale to complete it and make it a little more bright.

Here's a close up a few of my favorite ornaments.


A bunch of these ornaments are from my childhood. Some of them were made by grandma when I was little. Some are more recent. The Starbucks cup is from when I used to work in Seattle. The green tree has a picture of us from our first wedding anniversary. And The Rockettes girls are from my trip to NYC.

Around Christmas I leave up a small festive table scape on our dining room table.


I also exchange a bunch of the items on our living room shelves for Christmas items.


Well, that's all for the tour! Hope you enjoyed it.

We wish you a ...
