It's beginning to look like Christmas! Actually has been for weeks now....but I'm almost finished!

Starting with the Dining Room, I painted a dresser and
turned it into a buffet for the dining room.  It was so nice
having so much space to work with this year!  I'm
keeping the Dining Room and Foyer in a whimsical theme.
I had originally decorated this tree with gold, black, feathers,
pretty crosses, etc., but this look makes me smile, plus it's
fun for my younger 2 kids.

 Bought this little musical animated Gingerbread house
from Lowes a few years ago, my kids so look forward
to me getting this down from the attic!

 This is what I've done to the Hallway, going
for a more sophisticated look, using a lot of black
frames and sconces I use year-round.  The black iron
deer I found at a thrift shop for $2! 
I found these Christmas cardboard cutouts
at The Dollar Tree.  I placed scrapbook paper and fabric
behind them and it has turned out one of my
favorite things.  So cheap, too! 

 This is in my Living Room, again trying to keep
with a more sophisticated theme.  I use LOTS of gold, red
and black but am introducing a little lime green here and there.

These tin trays I also found at Dollar Tree,
I spray painted them black, glued scrapbook paper
inside of them and hot glued an ornament.
Super inexpensive project! 

Another tin tray sprayed gold and embellished.

I had this open back frame.  I usually have
a gold "D" in the middle.  For the Holidays
I added some super chic fabric in black and gold
behind it and hung this ornamental stocking
that I have had for years in the middle for
some instant framed art.
