Christmas-scapes of 2011

Just a few holiday decorations going on this year!

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!!
