Yes, I absolutely managed to decorate the house yesterday and today. By process of elimination, the theme ended up being red and green with some lime green thrown in for good measure, just because I had it all on hand from other projects.
If you recognize those glittered words from the dollar bins at Michael's you're right.
If you recognize the crazy garlands and the floral picks from the Dollarama, you're also right.
If you recognize the funky sayings like "Let it snow" and "ho ho ho" from Giant Tiger, you're right again.
If I find the time, I'm going to tie some lime green ribbons around the necks of my apothecary jars.
Before it was all finished and styled, it looked like a tornado hit the house. Boxes and Tupperware were opened everywhere, with me mixing and matching whatever I could to make it all work together.
Some red lights, some green. Some of the red lights are so old, they're starting to look pink.
Those are really the best shots I can get of the living room. When you get right down to it, our house is pretty dark. Old houses have small windows - and while I love having lots of wall space for hanging art, in the winter there isn't enough light to get good photographs without a flash... and I hate to use my flash, don't you?
