Diningroom Ready For Christmas!!!

Hi everyone!...I hope you had a good weekend!!...It's been a busy one today!...But I did take time to take some pics of what I've been doing around here...Not quite finished...I went to Walmart to get groceries and was going to get clear Christmas lights...Well, I guess everyone is using clear this year because there wasn't a single stand...Others were looking for clear also..So I guess I will be going to another store this week for lights so I can get them on my tree in the master bedroom...But here is the diningroom...And yes, I CRINGED when I saw that I had forgotten to pull up the blind....But you know, I do have to have them....Just wish they weren't in my pictures...So I hope you enjoy!!....Until next time....Merry Christmas!!~~hugs,Jen

P.s.....The tree in my previous post is a wire one wrapped in tape...I bought it last year and it was the only one she had...But if you want to do the same thing then use a tree branch...I want to find one for the front porch...If you try it then I'd love to see pics of it!!!

I found some neat prim at TJ Max last week. It was called the Early House Collection. So wonderfully prim. I had never been to that store B4, now I cant wait to go back. :)
I will be adding pictures of my new goodies soon.

I love your dining room Jenn it looks so nice in there. I love the orange slices and the natural things on the trees.

Everything looks great! Don't worry about the blinds showing. I have them too, also out of necessity. I really don't like them, but they help with the heat in the summer. Down south we need all the help we can get during the summer! But seriously,. I woudln't have even noticed if you hadn't mentioned it! LOL!
Have a great week!

Just Gorgeous Jen...Prim perfect...
Have a great week...


Janet - underthewillow said...

Everything looks absolutely WONDERFUL!! I don't mind a bit that you didn't pull the blinds up, LOL....I've often thought how do folks have such cool window treatments without needing privacy so it's good to know that even the best and most primitive style homes have to have blinds too!

Have a joyous week!

Hi Jen....What an "olde timey" Christmas you are going to have. I'll bet your presents are wrapped like in the olden days, too. I strive for your look but always fall short. Thank you for sharing, Jen. Your blog is always a sincere enjoyment!
