It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

It’s hard to believe that just one short week ago it was Thanksgiving! Our house has gone from “fall” to “holiday” in a matter of days. We put up & decorated our trees and set up the “Snow Village” and train set! We have 7 trees of various shapes & sizes (all artificial because of some allergy issues). Can you tell we LOVE Christmas!!!  Everyone helps out and it’s so much fun…but not so much fun, or help, when it’s time to take it all down.

Just a quick LO of some of the trees. (Thanks to Katie Pertiet for the papers & elements).

I found a great centerpiece idea in the “Southern Living Christmas at Home” magazine that looked really pretty…and easy to do (one of my main requirements)!  You take a large glass jar, some beautiful cut branches and add a product called “Snow Real” to make the artificial winter wonderland.  I was able to find the Snow Real at Linens-n-Things , but the magazine suggested a website called soilmoist.com.  Probably any craft store would also carry it.  I haven’t made mine yet, but here is the photo from the magazine.
