I seriously love this dolly. It as converts to a regular upright. I don't remember why I wanted a dolly, but it has become one of those items that I don't think I could live without! I actually use it quite a bit!
Anywho, I got to work and finally got my beautiful tree up! It is the same Mardi Gras/Peacock theme that I did last year. I did add a few new decorations that I picked up in after Christmas sales for a song and some that I received as gifts from my family. I also want to complain that I struggled to find the right colour/theme decorations last year, but this season I see these colours and peacockyiness all over! Go figure.
I also switched up the mantle to add in my advent tree and a couple small decorations. I somehow lost my Christmas Countdown clock. Hmm...
Finally, I picked up some really fun and bright ornaments from Shopper's in their after-Christmas sales last year. They didn't match my tree-theme, but I had had my eye on them all season because they were just so cute!! For fun, I hung them on my palm-tree-thing (seriously, what is this plant??)
I used to not put up decorations since it just me and I don't spend Christmas Day at the condo at all (I head home on Christmas Eve), but it really does help me get in the spirit and I do love the fun of it all. The condo always looks super boring when it all comes down.
How is your decorating going? When do you put up and take down?
