Christmas Is Back On!

December 18, 2009

Thank God! Last week we tried bringing the tree back in the house and Barney has been fine. Lights are up outside, the tree is decorated, the other day I went to World Market and picked up some Dutch and German treats, and my mom will be here in a few days so we can bake cookies and roast ham together.

The lights along the roof line are big, clear G40 and C9 bulbs. I think the chimney needs a bold, brightly lit decoration, like a 40″ wreath or snowflake, but I haven’t been able to find anything in the right color.

I love how the exterior and interior lights mirror each other and are reflected in the clerestory windows.

I’m pretty happy with how the tree turned out, but I wish I had even more ornaments. It’s hard to find the right color green unless they’re in a multi-pack with other colors like red, purple, and blue.

I love the tree with the fire flickering nearby. Enjoy the rest of the eye candy below.

    Pretty! Hey, you could save some $$ and spray paint the fireplace surround thing. Whatever you call the brass thing.
