The Halls Have Been Decked

I had the best time decorating our house for Christmas...and just like the tree...I'm going to be really sad to take it all down and pack it away in the attic until next year. We got so incredibly lucky with all of our decorations this year and didn't have to spend much money. When Josh was at his apartment he didn't have a ton of Christmas decorations, obviously. So a few things had to be bought. But, if you've been around this space for any length of time, you know that I am a bargain shopper through and through. Sign me up for a trip to any and all consignment stores, Goodwill, Dollar Trees, swing my by Target's Dollar Spot, and let me hit up a garage or yard sale and I am set! Oh and I can't forget craft shows, too!
 
Mom and Granny got a lot of our d├ęcor from a garage sale one morning a few months ago and dropped by our house and had tons of goodies for us! And they probably spent 10 bucks. Mom, Granny and I went on our annual craft show visit a few weekends ago and a new lady was set up and she had the CUTEST decorations for SO CHEAP! I'm talking $5 and $7 for things you would have guessed to cost much more. And I got a few things from a consignment shop visit a month or so ago. So, we stocked up on some great things for this Christmas and Josh has voiced to me a few times "since we got all this stuff this year you don't have to buy ANY next year...right?" We shall take the verdict on that when Christmas comes around net year ;)
 
Without further adieu, here is our home decorated for Christmas! (To see the deets of our first Christmas tree, go here!)
