Christmas tree and I've Really Changed

I’ve really changed up my Christmas decorating this year.

My rustic Christmas centerpiece is one example.

Instead of just throwing everything I had wherever, I’ve tried to make groupings and look at how I use my space.

And…gasp…..I’ve even used less this year!

My mom was given this little tree after my dad passed away and she was in the assisted living facility.

I combined a few of my parents’ vintage ornaments with some of last year’s after Christmas bargains.

I love having these sweet reminders of their love for the Christmas season.

I love the glitter stars that came with the clearance ornaments.

My philosophy this year?

Repurpose. Regroup. Re-love.

Hmmm. That’s not a word is it?

But I re-love my centerpiece!

I am still diligently working on posting my Christmas decor but here’s a peek at how I decorate without a fireplace and a mantel.
