Christmas Abode

I started decorating my house for Christmas! After a grueling hour of digging out boxes from the very back of my storage closet (I’m not going to lie, several things toppled on my head) while dealing with two overly excitable cats who started monkeying around in EVERY THING I finally got most of it sorted and settled in for an enjoyable few hours of decorating. Here are a few candids of my decor scheme...











Is anyone else decorating for the holidays?

Beautiful! You did a great job! I'm not having a tree this year, when I put it up my cat destroys it and sometimes I even found her IN the tree.

I am happy to report that I have no hockey affiliations -- although if I had to chose I suppose I would be a Canadiens fan. Being an Edmontonian I sort of instinctly recoil from the Oilers (yeah, I'm a horrible Edmontonian).

Looking at other people's decorations is one of my favorite parts of the holidays! There are charming touches all around your house!!!

GASP! The decorations are great, but I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw how nice your place is. Are you sure you're a grad student? Aren't you supposed to be poor and starving as all grad students are?!?!? HMMM!?!??!?!

Since we'll be traveling and since Chanukah fell so early this year, we went minimal with our decoration. Menorah and tree. Some photos are up on my other blog.

I love your decorations! You have some really amazing ornaments!
