It is the 2nd day of December and today the girls got to open a new gift from the advent calendar I made for them. If you want to know what they got today and what they will receive you got to go and check out my Facebook pages. I’ll post a picture of the new gift everyday.
Since getting the calendar done I’ve now started concentrating on decorating the house. The girls room was the first one I started with. I had replaced some old silk flowers with these lovely branches I had brought back from out cabin. I added some glass birds that had been lying around in our Christmas decorations (these can stay there through out the year) and then these cute little glittery stars.
I also turned the little corner beneath the lamps into a reading nook. Both of my girls love to read and to strengthen this habit I wanted them to have a special little place for them to always go to read. As it turned out they loved it! I was also happy that I was able to use the same fabric I used for the rooms curtains. It brought it all together a little more.
But I think that is all the Christmas decorations they need for the branches. This room would be hard to turn into a red, green and white Christmas world so we’ll stick to these happy colors.
