Christmas 2009

I'm in the process of compiling ideas for new holiday decor for my first Christmas in my new-ish apartment. I'm planning on making it beach themed.  But for now, I thought it would perhaps be refreshing to post my holiday decor from Christmas 2009. I went with a red and white color scheme and got crafty!

Let us begin...

Made some coffee filter angels...

sparkly bulbs...

some pipe cleaner guys...

and a GIANT star!

Voila! Christmas tree.

christmas flowers
why not decorate the palm...
Made these little stars
gotta have stockings

all lit up!

The End.

So... when I began writing this entry here is how it began: "Might as well get some pictures of my apartment up before I have to move out."  I have since moved out (6 months ago!... woops), and began completely redecorating.

Anyway... for the record, here are some pictures of my previous apartment.  The picture below shows my old living room. I covered the pillows myself (piping and all) and painted the painting above the couches as well. The sofa and love seat on the left side were handed down from my previous roommate.  The coffee table and farthest right couch were both found on craigslist and the rug from goodwill. Yay for affordable used finds!

And in the kitchen... "Home Sweet Home" from goodwill also. :)

Now say farewell, for this apartment is no longer mine.  Ta-ta!
