Did you ever read or watch the movie, "The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood?"
I love when Necie was having a hard time and she would always try to think with pink and blue thoughts.
So this year, I decided that I would decorate with pink and blue thoughts as well as be a little different. I will also confess that I had no desire to get out our big tree and our 6+ boxes of Christmas decor out of the attic. Ken completely cheered me on.
For those of you trying to read between the lines, we are not pregnant, but pray and hope that it happens soon for us! :)
For the most part, I used what I had in my house and only spent about 10 minutes in the attic digging in some boxes with a flashlight in my mouth. I loved having to be creative and thinking a little outside the box.
So here it is ...
I still wanted to be on the vintage shabby chic.
The tree was our display tree from our craft fairs.
I simply used the leftover decorations from our craft fairs as well as a few that I made last year. Most of the decorations on the shelf where things that I did not sell at the craft fairs, and in my heart, I was glad.
I also turned our table and chairs so that it would be more parallel with the tree, and I like it! I feel like we have more room like this.
The entry table is decked out with our "Believe" banner and hymnal Christmas music.
Thank goodness God has not struck me dead yet for tearing apart a hymnal.
I also added our "Joy" banner on our vintage fan that is display only unless I need a natural hair tease.
And what would we do without our Thanksgiving/Christmas cactus and asparagus fern. The cactus is from my grandmother's cactus that is over 15 years old. The fern is from our wedding.
I love being surrounding with things that have meaning. Just about everything has a story at our house.
