Little Trip to Michael's

So Pennie and I went to Michael's to get a wreath... other things, minus a wreath, later we came home to put up my new stuff that was all 50% off. And we all know what 50% off means right? Means you can buy 4 or 5 of what you weren't going to buy in the first place. To my credit I have been meaning to buy some black and white frames for a few months. Which makes this part of the purchase a procrastinated necessity. Thanks for helping me make the right decision Pennie. What a chore we had trying to hang the last one the right height though... geez!



And then I needed a garland to go on top of my cabinets that are painted. This is a bad pic, but if you strain you get the idea.



And every garland needs a little birdie... or two. Adds a nice little splash of red.



My reindeer! I have wanted a reindeer for SOOO long. For those who don't know, I have loved decorating for Christmas my whole life. I don't think I was out of high school the first time I purchased my first flocked 8' Douglas Fir Christmas tree from my local rip-you-off-on-the-corner-of-the-street-vendor. Loved it! (Justin hates real trees, "why would you pay money for a dead tree?") Anyway I haven't been stocking up on Christmas decor because we have moved 7 times in 5 years. Now that we're stable... watch out. I'm gettin the whole reindeer clan and anything else on 80% off after Christmas! I can't wait. And now Tai Pan is here too... anyway, I love my lone deer and his big poinsettia.

Purty pictures. How funny that you're just starting with xmas stuff, and I've had to cut back to only one xmas dcor purchase each year! I purged a ton of stuff before we moved and I'm down to like 5 rubbermaid containers (half of which are garland). I'm determined to keep it at that!

I love decorating for Christmas too! I wouldn't let my self but hardly anything because I was in school, then the apt with Joel, but last year I bought a LOT of things after Christmas at fantastic deals and am so excited to be putting everything up!
