this or that thursday

We actually got our tree up early this year and I've been enjoying it so much! I'm changing things up a bit. After using the same ornaments for many years, I decided to get new ones. I admit, this decision was made on a whim while looking around at Target. I fell in love with their contemporary craft line of ornaments. It's owls, birds, mushrooms, snowflakes, bells and a whole lot more. And the colors are all my favorites. It's very fun and I love it!

  18. Oh, loving the tree and the new ornaments! Wow, all the photos are just incredible, hard to pick a favorite, but I do really love the one of the red stockings and the gorgeous light bokeh, and the one of the mushroom ornament.

    Still haven't gotten the tree up, which is REALLY late for me, but after 15 years the lights are just dead. So I'll have to take them all off and re-string....Ugh!
