More Christmas Decorations

Isn't that a creative title? You'll have to excuse me. I am kind of a walking zombie. With a couple of sick kidlettes, and so much to do, sleep is just not happening for me.

Anyway, I am a little farther along on my decorating. This is something new this year, inspired by Emily Henderson's idea here. My husband loves old maps, so we have a couple of those antique map calendars hanging around.

And our walls in the dining room happen to be a bare mess right now because I just stripped off the wall paper and am waiting on new paint. So, I was easily able to do a large something here.

My oldest hung the ornaments on the nails, and I happened to really love that little touch. The letters came from Martha Stewart. A free download found here.

I bought these ornaments, (two packs of Martha Stewart shatterproof ornaments) at an antique place for a buck a pack. I love the colors and the sparkle.

So there we are. A little farther along. And still so much more to come!

I love this idea, and Joy to the World is one of my most favorite Christmas songs! Thanks for showing this off!

That is such a creative idea for the chandelier! It looks so delicate. I kind of wish I had a chandelier to do it with... Maybe I can take an old lamp shade and make a fake with Christmas ornaments... Thanks for sharing!!

Looking very pretty. I so know what you mean having sick kiddies is very hard work so draining I hope they feel better soon.
