Our Holiday Home Decor part 1

This is the last time I'll be decorating this house for Christmas so I'm feeling a little (a lot) sentimental. We empty nesters are down-sizing and simplifying this next year. I really want will be hard. My husband takes one look at my office and shudders.

So now,  here's Christmas at the Boot house 2010:

I love my white tree, it shows all the jewel toned ornaments so well.

A few years ago I found some ornaments on sale that matched my living room furniture

Which I love! Yup I'm a black and white and jewel tones girl. The pillow (Pottery Barn outlet... only comes out at Christmas) just has gift wrap ribbon tied around it.

I love my nativity set, I bought it at a Dollar store...really!

I made a huge ornament topiary out of all my left overs.
Use it or lose it is my motto this year.
I brought in a metal topiary form that I had out in the garden and stuck it in an urn I had
 and wired on the Norna - ments...that's what my daughter, Melissa calls them!

I like the way it turned out.

Bright and shiny - that's how I like everything.

 Garland is hung everywhere....and not a penny was spent in decorating!!!
