Alright, just a few more snippets of the holiday decor around the house. I opted out of putting lights on the tree this time because of how quickly it seems to dry up the needles. Maybe my observations are inaccurate, but it seems our tree is definitely more green than it has been in previous years. We also don't have a fireplace so we hung our handmade stockings onto a leftover christmas tree branch. I still have about 15 branches left over, so I'm thinking wreaths for friends and maybe a holiday chandelier above the kitchen table? We'll see how crafty I'm feeling this week!
