Deck the Halls 2011

Our halls are decked, fa la la la la!

On Black Friday, Sam and I put up all the Fall decorations and pulled out the massive red plastic bin that holds all the Christmas decorations–a massively reduced supply after our move, and it was still a tight fit to find a place for everything in our new apartment!

A TV tray holds our tiny 2-foot tree,

Fake as fake can be, but it's stayed with us through four Christmases so far 🙂

I hung 3M hooks on a door for our stockings,

the garland that used to adorn our front porch railing now hangs around a doorway,

and all our knickknacks found other places to call home:

Be Merry!

The TV stand is Snowman Central

 

Festive Frosty lights up and swirls!

 

Can't forget the kitchen!

Probably the saddest improvisation was for my poor holiday book collection–with no basket or table to sit on, I turned a footstool upside down to contain them!

And I probably won’t even buy a new basket either, because after the holidays I won’t have a place for it!  It’s been a challenge to adjust to such a tiny space, but we’re making it work!

I love the cozy feel of Christmas trees at night!
