This year I actually got up my Christmas stuff on time so I thought I show you what I bring out each year. I will say part of the reason I get pushed to decorate my place slightly is because of St.Christopher. He loves Christmas, its his favorite holiday of the year. Not to mention that I can see his spirit, and every time the holidays come he seems to pop out his Santa Suit... well he is adorable as always if he was physically alive I probably hug him all the time :)
The first one I wanted to show you is my Christmas Wreath. I did this one years ago with a old friend of mine. She actually helped me put it together. I wont forget the experience in making it. I brought everything at Michael's back then and I went right after Halloween time where I used at 40% coupon on the wreath and then we were lucky to see a sale on all those decorations for the wreath as well. I never knew it was that easy to assemble. But we did it in less than hour. It was fun to be able to create what I wanted. The one thing I will always remember is St.Chris being so insistent on the Frosted Berries under the Bird lol. At that time both me and my friend would argue with him and say sorry Chris this isn't going to fit on the wreath. They he was firm going yes it will right under the bird please... needless to say he was so right and when I looked at my wreath I could believe how perfect it turned out. I absolutely love it. To this day when I go to Michael's to look at new Christmas decorations for the a new wreath, it isn't the same. the decorations are more expensive and not as lovely as when I first went there. So I am blessed to have this to decorate it.
My next decoration is the Christmas tree. . My friend that decorated the wreath gave it to me for my first Christmas when I moved to La Jolla. Its absolutely adorable as I never owned a Christmas tree before and she got it for me because she knew how much I loved teddy bears so she said it totally matched me! Every time I see it I think its great. My friend also got me some of the most beautiful mini ornaments to go along with it plus I love the Angel topper she gave me. I also have a star topper too. but I usually use the Angel topper because I think about my guides. But I did just swap it out and put the star on there too so you can see a bit of difference. :)
Of course here is the cute Christmas Tree Skirt the Chris picked out and he had to have that baby snowman too... my friend got the two teddy bears for me to match my Christmas tree and I did put my mom right by the tree as its her favorite holiday.
