For the last few years, I have chosen to go with a more natural theme (gold, brown, green, twigs, leaves, etc...) for my Christmas decorations, and I'm really enjoying the neutral tones. Staying pretty minimal while incorporating texture was my goal this year since I'm in love with a "cottage-y" (word? no.) sort of look...not that I have attained that appearance by any means.
Look at me! I've just started telling you about our decorations, and I'm already bored with myself! I always say that my favorite colors are brown and cream, and you've probably already figured that out if you've ever seen pictures of our house or my clothes. I want to branch out; I really do. Hey, at least our back door has a little bit of red...
Staying true to my plain self, I do have a soft-spot in my heart for our tree skirt. Burlap from Hobby Lobby two years ago...I think it was 10 yards, and I'm pretty sure I spent $17 with my 40% off coupon :).
P.S.: This year, we found out what happens when some of the lights go out on your lovely, affordable pre-lit tree. Tried to unsuccessfully mend the situation. Don't look too close.
Still looking for the perfect stocking for Anniston...
Told you I like burlap! It makes my heart go pitter patter.
Here it is, folks! Me branching out!
