Light Up The Sky

A few weeks back I started decorating our house for the season... We really don't have "much" to decorate with... the hubby and I have always spent our time away for the holidays, and this is one of the first years where we're actually staying at home. So, decorations were in order... replacement pillowcases were sewn, the tree was brought out and decorated with our childhood ornaments, antique ornaments were thrown into empty vessels I had laying around the house, the German pyramid was constructed and lit (more on that in a later post), and of course because we're celebrating the birth of our King, a flag bunting was created!

The hubby and I have always debated whether or not to put a "star" or an "angel" on top of our tree... and since we haven't found something that we both agree on, I decided to write out some lyrics (The Afters, "Light Up The Sky") on a small framed chalkboard, and stuck that on the top of our tree with a big fabric ribbon. Now, I'm not sure if I'm a fan of this look quite yet, but that's all I could come up with for this year...

Pin It!
