Inspiration...

I often find myself blog stalking, looking for creative ways to spruce up my house.  I find some much inspiration from all of YOU out there.  Today I am going to share some of what I have been doing.(remember I said I would share some decorating ideas on this blog?... did I say that?  I think I did... well I will fulfill my promise today... after months of putting it off.)  Side note:  My decorating style is called schizophrenic... if I like it I use it, even if it doesn't go together.  I hope this inspires you to use what you have, and what you enjoy looking at; and not to be afraid of the $ store.  I have found lots of great little extras for $1.  You can decorate on a small budget. 

Welcome...

Thanksgiving at the Moes 134

to our home!!

Thanksgiving at the Moes 011 What I love about my tree... I love to hang pictures frames on my tree with pictures of my family through the years...  ribbon, berries, wreaths, old ornaments,  white lights, handmade ornaments, old-fashioned tree topper, Initials of each family member, and letters representing love and family; ornaments that say; joy, peace, faith, ornaments from our tree when we were growing up, and ornaments we have collected from our travels.   My tree has meaning, and each and every ornament can take me back to a special place or time in our life.  What does your tree say about you?

 Thanksgiving at the Moes 042 We are slowly collecting Nativity's.  We have four, and I feel they are one of my most treasured Christmas decorations.  They represent what this is all about.

Thanks for the tour. I love that santa's watch. Your kitchen table looks so great with those new chairs. You sure had vision when you bought that set! (I hope that didn't make it sound like it was ugly when you bought it - it wasn't, you've just made it SO MUCH better than it was!

Awesome, Andrea. Can't wait to see it in person some time!
I think our tree says that we are channeling Charlie Brown. We decided to go with a live tree, one that we could plant later, got to Lowe's and realized we could afford a 3-gallon potted one. It's about 3 1/2 feet tall and we had to work hard to get it to take one string of lights. The boys were given strict instructions to ONLY PUT ON THE LIGHTEST ORNAMENTS. It was hilarious watching them figure out which ones those were! :) tee hee.
I love your ideas! Good work!
