Christmas Shelves

Yes, Christmas Shelves,

not Christmas Elves…

Although, I could use some elves around here
to help me!


I am slowly dragging out all the Christmas decor

after a weekend of cleaning up after Thanksgiving

and celebrating my birthday.

My husband jokes that I celebrate the whole month of November.

Not true…

But I do try to stretch it out as long as I can!

Anyway,

since last year I didn’t have

these shelves in my dining room,

I did not have a plan for them this year.

I just gathered some random things

from my many boxes in the basement.

And this is what I came up with.

I may end up changing the decor

after I go thru the rest of my stuff.

But for now, this is how the shelves look.

This time of the year, I am always happy to have

a red dining room.

The red walls make anything seem Christmasy.


Here is how the shelves look most of the year.

And once again,

the Christmas Shelves.

Now, I am off to tear into some more boxes.

Are you done decorating yet?
Do you have any elves to help you?

    Your shelves look very pretty, you have a good start. The little penguin is cute. I am needing help, too. I'm trying to decorate, blog and get things ready for my gingerbread linky party, in addition to all the routine things that have to get done. I complain but the truth is I love every minute of getting ready for Christmas. Will be waiting patiently to see the rest of your decorating. ———-Shannon

    I am loving your Christmas shelves. Finished with my decorating and yes I have two special elves, one helps with the outside and the other helps with the tree.
