With all the markets that we have set up at, we have been surrounded by gorgeous Christmas displays since September. But our home doesn't have a single bit of holiday cheer yet. And I've never been good at Christmas decor. Every year I really want to have beautiful decorations but I never quite pull it together in time. So today I decided to do a 3 minute Christmas makeover on an empty little spot at the top of the stairs. We have a huge old house that usually has more toys and school work and half finished projects on display than pretty things ("Hoarders With Glitter", as Jen Rizzo says). But I'm determined! It's December 1st for goodness sake. I'm not going to let all the loveliness that Christmas can be slip by! So I grabbed some Christmas-y things from a box leftover from the Hens market. I fumbled up the stairs with an awkward armload, kicked the hotwheels out of the way and decided to give it a go.
My tattered french chair from Anne Marie has a new spot. I'm not sure that I'm in love with the result of my on-the-fly Christmas corner but maybe that's because it's a lone beacon of holiday cheer. So I'm challenging myself to do a 3 minute Christmas makeover each day in the hopes that I'll actually have Christmas decorations in time for Christmas!
