Jenworld at Christmas, 2013 version
This is our fifth Christmas in new mod Jenworld and every year, I tweak things a bit. This year, I actually simplified and streamlined things a little — not so many tchotchkes around the house and no lights outside.
Walk with me, won’t you?
Because our front door is a vivid blue, I'm very picky about the colors I use on wreaths, including no reds. I just prefer icy silvers and whites.
Snow falling in the foyer. This area is not normally so tidy.
My wee woolen gnomes are hanging out in a little tree on the kitchen counter this year.
Putz houses in their usual spot on the back of the dining bench. Do you like how I used cleaning rags (made from old t-shirts) to create the snowy base? Klassy.
Our new fake tree. It doesn't need watering. It doesn't drop needles. It doesn't make me break out in hives. I lurve it.
The stockings were hung by the bookcase with care...
This glorious silver tinsel tree is new here as of two days ago. Next year, I might be classy and use white lights, but this year ... not so much. And as you can see, I just threw the lights on the tree in an attempt to have it ready before the girls got home from school. Most of the ornaments belonged to my grandparents.
Okay, so maybe three trees isn’t simplified and streamlined — especially when you take into account the fact that the girls each have a wee tree with their own ornament collections in their respective rooms, which makes for five trees in Jenworld — but overall, there’s less Christmas going on around the house than usual.
So that’s what Christmas looks like here. Thanks for stopping by for a tour.
