O Christmas Tree

I went around the house last night and took pictures of everything lit up!  I'm like a kid again when it comes to lights!  Every morning when I wake the kiddos up for school, I turn on the lights first.  They just make me happy.  I remember when I was a kid, my brother and I would lay underneath the tree and look up at all the sparkly lights and ornaments!  Ah, memories!


This year, I wanted to do something a little different to the tree.  I bought fabric webbing for .67 a yard at my local Wal Mart!  This is the same ribbon/webbing I used to hang the coffee filter wreath in the kitchen.


I love to add unexpected things in the tree, like this vintage Christmas tin can.  I also have plates and wall plaques.


Love Kailey's Anthropology letter K ornament.




I told you I wasn't done!  I added the red wooden beads under the mantle.  I love it!  I am in love with the command strips and hooks.  I used theseThey are genius!!!

Here's the tree during the day!  Trees, to me, during the day, are not so spectacular.  But still pretty to look at.  Hope everyone has a blessed Friday!
