I just love this time of year. And I love decorating for it. This year, I went with a colorful Christmas theme - mostly centered around green, blue and red.
Jingle Bugs is on the table... Ellie just loves that book.
Elf Stockings from Sew4Home.com. The fabric line is "Colorful Christmas" by My Mind's Eye for Blake Riley. They may look a little limp at the moment... but they won't on Christmas eve!
This post could have also been titled "Decorating for Dollars" as nearly everything I used to decorate was either a gift or handmade from materials on sale. Target provided the little sparkly balls atop the trees (they were originally ornaments in the dollar section). To make the trees I recycled paper from last year and also purchased some more from Brenda Walton's Peppermint Twist Collection.
And while I was taking these pictures Ellie thought it must be time for a photoshoot of her as well. Look at those beautiful blue eyes. And notice the jingle bell she stole from a wreath.
