come on in!

It's 9:00 at night and the Fedex dude just came. The doorbell rang and were like "what in the world!" My heart goes out to all the delivery folks during this time of the year...so busy! Have I told y'all my UPS man looks like the UPS man in "Legally Blonde". Ya know the 'bend & snap'...I seriously have to hold in my giggles every time he makes a delivery.

Anyhow...I'm a bit behind on my tour of Christmas decorations. But better late than never I guess. So welcome to my damask themed Christmas. I really heart the damask prints!

Yeah I zoomed up to the top because my tree's belly lights are still out. My tree is being such a pain! I searched for 3 years for a damask black & cream ribbon and thanks to my mom I finally found it and it's 3 inches wide. Snaps for 3 inch ribbon!



The mantle. I know the garland needs a little something else and that mirror could use a cleaning too.


I've started the wrapping. It's my favorite part it's so relaxing to me for some reason. We haven't had our presents under the tree in 3 years...or since the purchase of pug. So far there has only been one bite mark with them on the fireplace. I give it 2 more days before they have to move to higher ground.

And the nativity scene...lovingly displayed on more damask print!

Well, that's the short tour...now I'm off to finish wrapping more presents and find a good ole' Hallmark Christmas movie on tv.

I wish my mom would put out my presents under the tree.
I hate not knowing how many there are.
Sure, it sounds selfish. But it's true.

Your decorations are gorgeous! (and our belly lights are out... maybe it's an epidemic?)
