I am in full decorating mode here and trying to get things sorted and up throughout the house. The main tree is up and rotating daily. I had been looking at rotating stands but no way would I spend the money they wanted for them. Cheapest I had found was $49.00 . Just did not need my tree to rotate for that price. Then a week ago I went to the Craft and Estate sale held each fall at the Senior Center. What to my wondering eyes should appear but rotating tree stands for $15.00 .I did a lot of questioning as I was just afraid it would not hold a large 8 foot tree fully decorated. I was told they sure do and you will love it. So I finally went back to the booth and bought one. I am so glad I did. I love the tree and being able to see all ornaments as it rotates merrily in a circle.
The Angel tree is just about finished. I've got a few new touches to add to it. Wanted it to stand out a bit more and think I have figured out just what will make it pop for me. I can hardly wait to see it it works so I can get pictures of my different trees to post.
I still have several trees to drag up the stairs and get decorated so I think you know what I will be doing this week.
I would like to share a few decorating tips I have found and will be incorporating several into my decorating this year.
Make multiple bows from pretty Christmas Ribbon and pin to your curtains or use on your tie backs for your drapes. Suspend pretty ornaments from matching ribbon across the span of your window.
Dress up your houseplants with Christmas Picks or add pretty miniature ornaments to them.
Pile A stack of Christmas Books on the side table or coffee table.
Tie ribbon around slim drinking glasses. Fill with Christmas candies and add to your side table.
Suspend sparkly snowflakes from your ceiling or windows.
Sew scrapes of Christmas fabric into a patchwork table cloth buy stitching together 4" squares of various fabrics then hemming. Quick and easy and would also make a wonderful Christmas gift.
Purchase a large glass plate at a thrift shop. Paint the underside gold. Add several heights of pillar candles to it. Pretty for either a centerpiece on your table or use on your coffee table.
Glue candy canes with hooks up to terracotta pot. Tie with a red ribbon and add either wrapped candy of a pretty poinsettia to the pot.
Add color to your bathroom using red and green towels. And to the bedroom by adding Christmas colors for blankets and pillows.
Fill a large vase with ever green branches and suspend ornaments from the branches. A good way to bring the fresh pine smell to your home if you use an artificial tree.
I hope that some of these I have listed will give you as few new ideas in decorating your home for the Christmas Season.
Love this picture. I like how vintage looking it is.

I hope that everyone is having a beautiful start to the Christmas Season.
