This year I decided on a Canadiana Christmas theme to try and unite the different areas of our home (and also because so many of our ornaments are outdoorsy.) I only bought six new moose ornaments (.99 each), the skis ($10), two Tim Hortons ornaments ($11) and a couple of rolls of ribbon (3.99 each.) Everything else was reused from previous years.
I really enjoyed decorating our front porch this year, with fresh greenery in the pots and a vintage pair of skis I found for $10.
The little white and sparkly tree in our bedroom is here.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm going to make myself a hot chocolate on this cold and snowy evening and start visiting the many links at The Nester's Christmas Tour of Homes 2010. I wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

"Start by making your own home a place where happiness and love abound, through your love for each member of your family and for your neighbor.
Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families. So much sin could be avoided if our people really love their homes. "
The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.
