Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

To continue the Christmas tour of my house, let's head into my living room:

Welcome, come on in!

I love my white Christmas tree :)

The mirrors have stayed put (for now)

I added some cranberry garland to my dressform, Emma, so she looks
festive while greeting guests

 The black rock looking things are faux pieces of coal my mom gave to my boyfriend
and I last year just for fun

I found these felt coasters in the dollar section of Michael's last year

One of the DIY canvas "presents" I made using ribbon and a staple gun

I still need to get a santa hat for Bernard the monkey
(Z Gallerie's product name for the statue)

Our new mantel won't be hung before Christmas so I just nailed our
stockings into the wall and if we decide to have a fire, I'll take them down

Since it doesn't snow in Tucson, I hung some felt snowflake ornaments from
these branches to make it feel more like winter

For a different take on a traditional vase, I stuck some berry picks into the top
of a martini shaker :)

Mmmm, smells like cinnamon :)

And there you have it, my Christmas living room!

What did you think? Have you decorated your house yet?
