Decorating the Apartment for Christmas 2012

My husband has been asking me when would I start decorating for Christmas since Thanksgiving. I was a bit surprised since I like to wait till it's actually December but Thanksgiving was early this year. (wasn't it?)

I knew I wanted to put the big tree someplace different. The office won out. I still have much to do but this is a good start!

I also decided to decorate our bedroom.
I framed the patio door with some old fashioned bulbs that I bought last year. I also decided to use cream colored ribbon to hang the wreaths. The side table was the perfect place for the advent calendar and a Santa.
I keep a few of our favorite Christmas cards every year and after seeing a similar way of displaying them on Pinterest I thought I would do the same. (a Christmas tree on the wall)

Our main Christmas tree is in the office this year. Hubby did the set up and I decorated.
My husband loves this cookie jar. Now I need to bake some snicker-doodles and fill it up!

A Christmas tea cup and saucer that I received from a women's tea a few years ago has a spot on a small shelf.
