The decorating at Casa Keylon is done. Well, I still have to hang the doves and cardinals from the kitchen lights (a tradition my husband dislikes because he’s continually banging his head on the birds all through December) and then we’ll be done.
Here’s a pic of Katie, caught looking for an ornament to chew on. We try to hang plastic/unbreakable ornaments near the bottom so she has some to tear down and play with… found out the hard way that if we don’t put them down low, she’ll climb the tree to get them anyway!
The tackier glitzier the better in the kitchen. I’m taking it easy this year, but we usually have that cheap silver garland draped along the cabinets… here’s my range hood stars:
This year I added something new– wall garland. I had an 8ft (or so) length of pine garland that I folded in half (to make it fluffier) and hung it on the wall. I’m using this to display my stitched ornaments, which I don’t have many of… hopefully this will inspire me to make some more before un-decorating time. I do like having them all in one place!
Um, just ignore the stuffed ostrich there…
