Christmas Shelves

Yes, Christmas Shelves,
not Christmas Elves...

Although, I could use some elves around here
to help me!

I am slowly dragging out all the Christmas decor
after a weekend of cleaning up after Thanksgiving
and celebrating my birthday.
My husband jokes that I celebrate the whole month of November.
Not true...
But I do try to stretch it out as long as I can! 

Anyway,
since last year I didn't have
these shelves in my dining room,
I did not have a plan for them this year.


I just gathered some random things
from my many boxes in the basement.

And this is what I came up with.
I may end up changing the decor
after I go thru the rest of my stuff.

But for now, this is how the shelves look.

This time of the year, I am always happy to have
a red dining room.
The red walls make anything seem Christmasy.


 Here is how the shelves look most of the year.

And once again,
the Christmas Shelves.

  4. Your shelves look very pretty, you have a good start. The little penguin is cute. I am needing help, too. I'm trying to decorate, blog and get things ready for my gingerbread linky party, in addition to all the routine things that have to get done. I complain but the truth is I love every minute of getting ready for Christmas. Will be waiting patiently to see the rest of your decorating. ----------Shannon
