Christmas in Our Appartment

After a busy week I've finally gotten around to posting photos of some of our Christmas decor as promised. Since the post from Monday, there's been an addition to the tree. The cute little felted gnome (we've named him Klausy) is actually a boiled egg warmer, but we think he makes a very nice tree topper.

The garland and lights are from Big Lots. No one can accuse us of not being frugal this season!

It took me over an hour to polish all the silver pieces (most of them thrift store finds) on top of the shelf.

Really? You found those pretty Revere bowls at the thrifts? Score Big!

AsianCajuns said...

Mary, I should really give the credit to my mom. She found the two large bowls at Last Chance Thrift in Decatur and the smallest bowl at some thrift store in Maryland.

Klausy is such a cute and funny name!
That silver is really amazingly polished. Sometimes I find it really fun to polish silver!!
Love the pink colour of the roses.

I love the lights around the frames! What a great idea - puts Martha Stewart to shame...You are so creative... And I am so impressed with the beautiful framed sketch of the man. The last time I was over, I think you were still working on it? Looks great!

I NEED that pink christmas tree. Isn't it somewhat freaky to celebrate christmas when it's warm outside? Or do you just get used to it?
