Last year I pared our decorations beyond the original 2-box Christmas--goodbye, broken nativities, old lights and dangerous glass balls.
Time for some new (to me) additions!
These vintage-y candles glow in each front window as a compromise to outdoor lights. 25-cents each in original boxes
Even our tree came from a thrift store!
We're fresh tree people, cutting spindly cedars in the lean times. Last year's allergy attack made us vow to go fake. But did I really want to fight the crowds at Target's 75% off sale?
Thank goodness Goodwill set out several unopened trees at Thanksgiving! This tall spruce cost $55 (originally $399).
Fresh or fake: which is cheaper/better/prettier for your family?
