Side by side, although taken weeks apart and the angles are different with where I was. Sort of a before and after...


On the left you can see lots of packages and they have been removed and placed in the family room where we have another tree. We have several trees here this year and the family room I don't normally share as per my family requests.

You do a beautiful job. I only wish (for Christmas and beyond) that my husband wouldn't put down all my ideas and "take over" whatever I do want to incorporate in the house. Thank you for sharing your pretty decorating genius.
