I have been very busy accumulating a few new things for Christmas this year. Would you believe that I really haven’t updated my Christmas decor for some time? I mean I’ve added a few new things here and there for years but have not changed up the main look towards a whole new direction in some time.
This year I have finally decided to go for the lime green Christmas look and I am just so excited about it, that I just have to show you bits and pieces. I have been a plaid Christmas decorator for some time and I will still keep quite a bit of that but I am going to attempt to bring in some lime green now too! If you know me, it should be no surprise there. I actually have a wonderful deep lime green master bedroom, two limish green bathrooms, and many lime green clothes! I just love that color!
I don’t think it will be too obvious but it will be different for sure! Let me show you a few things I have recently purchased to work towards that direction. Last week I went to Hobby Lobby and was quite pleased to see they were having a 50% off sale, then I went to Carolina Pottery and picked up a few more items I was looking for, here’s last weeks haul.
I have done the candy theme on a small scale in my kitchen for years but this year I am ramping it up a bit and adding that in the den some too. I really think that the candy look will be complimentary to the lime green as well as all my Santa’s. Well, I hope so anyway!
Aren’t these some of the cutest ornaments you have seen in some time? I thought so, especially at 50% off!
I have greenery already but am going to actually use it more and add a bit more filler to it too. I usually just do a very berry look, but this year that’s changing too. Again more greenery was 50% off from Hobby Lobby. It was certainly worth the drive this year!
This is what I picked up to update my front door wreath from the Dollar Tree, woohoo! Yep, only $1.00 each! I’m going to do a little change on some of this too.
And check this out! No, I didn’t buy this to use to display my Christmas balls. I bought this to use while working on my Christmas decor. I also like to paint Christmas balls and this is a perfect piece to use to let them hang while drying. It was actually even marked down to .25cents. I may need to go back to get another one so I can do assembly line painting. LOL!
And finally, I have to let you peek at these too! I also found these at the Dollar Tree. I plan to do something wonderful to use them inside, just you wait and see!
I confess I usually do not shop for new Christmas decor this early but I am so glad I did. I especially love that I have found such interesting things to update our Christmas decor this year at such a bargain too. I like to decorate the day after Thanksgiving (well really the whole weekend) after Black Friday shopping. I can hardly wait to get started now!
I am linking to the following parties to share my wonderful holiday deals.
Hope you are getting in the holiday spirit too! Thanks for stopping by! I hope all of you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
