Quick note: I don’t know what is going on, bloglines…hates me. It refuses to pick up my feed. Grrr. So if you missed the 1st and 2nd days of my Christmas blogging, just know that I have been faithfully posting. Even if bloglines is making me look like a slacker.
I am not going to be in my apartment for the holidays so I opted not to get a tree this year. But I still felt I had to do something to get me in the holiday spirit. So a couple trips to target later, I have this:
I know, it isn’t much. But looking at it makes me happy. The snowflakes are cheap ornaments that I tied to fishing wire and then tacked into the ceiling. Here’s a close up:
A little holiday decor to brighten my day. And it does. It almost makes up for not having a tree. Almost.

I love the snowflakes, so bright and cheery!! Even without a tree, your place still looks great! I have a mini tree this year since I am in such a little space and even that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! It’s definitely time to get a nice big cup of hot chocolate and sit down to watch “While You Were Sleeping”!!
The snowflakes are very festive! And don’t worry, Bloglines doesn’t hate you, it hates everyone. I gave up and switched to Google Reader.
that is a really cute idea! i love it 🙂
Lights are the best thing about Christmas decorating. I love your snowflakes!
I love your snowflakes. Looks like another trip out to the store for me!! Best wishes for the holidays!
I decorate with snowflakes too…the beauty is that you can leave it up until like mid-February and no one can comment…it’s still winter…there’s still snow.
SO clever. I might have to try hanging them from the ceiling too!
Bloglines… *sigh* At least Google Reader is picking up your feed, so you can tell your feed works. Have you contacted bloglines? That usually seems to get things going again.
it looks so warm and cozy!
i love it.
