Christmas-scapes of 2011

Just a few holiday decorations going on this year!

Christmas on the Larkin

Christmas on the Larkin

I know it may look a little sparse, I really keep things simple most of the time.  I’m also too cheap to buy too many decorations.  I think out of everything on this table, I bought the garland years ago.  The tree I’ve had since I was a little girl, and everything else I was gifted or inherited.

Tree and Pinecones

Ok, I did actually buy the mini ornaments on the tree last year from Target.  I spent $2 on two tubes of mini balls. The pine cones are in a small silver dish.

Brass Reindeer

This brass reindeer is an ornament, but it is too heavy to hang on the tree.

In the front hallway I have some carolers from Germany.

Little Carolers

My mom was given this set by her exchange family in Germany.  They are a bit worn now, and she has passed them on to me.  Even with missing books and paint, I think they’re adorable.

And finally, some new homemade decorations this year.  I made the ribbon trees out of glitter ribbon and styrofoam cones (seen here).  The little Joy craft project was easy, cheap and fun too!

Happy Holidays!!

  2. Hi Lucky Lass

    I love your blog and I really like your hubby too. I recently “met” him and have to say that you and him seem to be just about the nicest couple I have met in a very long time. Thank you so much for your support over Megan’s recent illness. It is especially touching that you found time to help me when you both have other stuff going on.

    I think your house looks very tasteful and I really hope you all have a fantastic Christmas.

    I am certain 2012 is going to be a great year for all of us.

    All the best

    Rach
