What I love about my holiday home

Karla is having another party! It's only 930 am here in North Canada and theres tons of people already there!

What I love about my holiday home is that it is cozy...

Ha! Not this cozy.... don't you love that cozy is a nice word for small? Being cozy, I don't have a lot of decorations, I have no place to store them! So there are some little things...

Like door hangers,

A neat mirrored star I just got,

And 3 angels I got at the thrift store for 2 bucks!

I don't have my tree up yet, we usually use a fake tree that I store at my moms, but this year I had an urge to use real again. I was at my friends house yesterday and she said we have tons! Lets go cut some down. So we did - we cut 4 small balsams to make one puffy one, cause one would be too straggly. Once they are together, you cant even tell! Now, I have a convertible so I was wondering how I was gonna get these home?! We got them in the trunk and put the seat down and voila! Trees. I had to take a pic.

Isn't that crazy? I have put some large stuff in that car. I've had to put the roof down and then put it in that way, but I've had it packed at auctions right to the roof. I hope to put the tree up today. This is a good time since I dont want it to dry out too much before Christmas.

Did I mention I am having Christmas in my cozy (read SMALL) house? Yeah! And it is good there will only be 6 of us and good that we now have a table. A table would be good....Here is a pic of said table, with the poinsetta Sean got me and a tablecloth I got for my birthday. It fits perfect and it has pine cones and chipmunks on it. Perfect for here. I also have 2 more chairs and a leaf for the table.

It makes it more special that the table was Seans grandmothers and his Mom is here for Christmas and loves that we have the table she grew up with.

I guess the best thing about here has got to be outside though. Even though I complain about it - I do love the look of the snow. Especially today when it is not too cold and it is sunny with nice blue skies.

Have a good day everyone!
