25 Days

There are 25 days (give or take a day) till Christmas.  

And as planned I spent a part of the weekend decorating my lil apartment.  I have always - well since the girls were small - had a Christmas theme.  This year I decided to go "glam" - so silver and white is the theme.  As much as possible the apartment is done up in silver and white.

When I dragged all the containers of decorations out - Missy the cat had to get in on the confusion.............. she really just wanted to help !!!  (yeah right!)



Come take a little walk around with me..........

The Front door announces the Silver and White (I think)



Then as you look down the hallway to the living room/dining room - there are silver branches adorned with white lights - and I filled the vase with silver balls.



Then the dining room has a silver table cloth and silver candles - and white snowflakes hanging from the china cabinet........



The bathroom has Christmas hand towels and a bowl filled with silver balls and a white and silver candle - for those stress relieving bubble baths........








Even the guest room is decked out with my Christmas houses...........



And finally - the crowning glory - the Tree - complete with silver and white balls - and sparkly silver and white tree skirt.........



It was a mixed bag of emotions decorating - by myself.  I found myself feeling sad at times - but I worked hard to see the joy that will be my Christmas this year - mostly cause I get to spend time with my children for 4 days or so........... and will be having friends in on New Year's day - to celebrate the beginning of the New Year - celebrating the start of a new life for me - celebrating my new home.

But I won't try and pretend that there wasn't the occasional heart pangs.......... and some anger.  BUT that is not for today - today is for sharing the joy of Christmas.........
