Okay, so when I went home this weekend.. I made a point to take a lot of pictures.. I added quite a few more things to my apartment and I wanted to take some better pics for you guys.  So, I'm going to add the new pics to the top here.  Beware.. there are several!!!!  I hope ya'll like them!


Here's my tree with all the lights out in the apartment.  It really does put off a nice glow.  The glass presents below the tree my Mom made.. I did help , though!  I mean, hey I stuffed all the lights in the boxes.. that's hard work.. lol


Over on my bookshelf when you walk in the front door.. I have several different things up.  Here is one of my little elves.  He is so adorable  So vintagey and retro.. I love him!  There's also a picture of Angel with Santa last year.  She looked so cute.. everybody said she really did look like Santa's dog with her capelet on and everything.


On the shelf above my one elf sits his little friend.  Aren't they just the cutest pair???


Just a cute little tree that my Mom bought me.. there are a few of them spaced out all over the shelves.. but this blue one is my fav.  I love the color.


Here's my cute little Hallmark snowman I got a few years back.  He's a lot of fun.  Kids always love him.


This is my cute little snowman lamp.  I love the vintage feel of him. 


Sitting on my yardstick shelf is this cute little paper snowman I cut out.


This is a finished view of my balcony.  Turned out really pretty with the garland and all, huh?


A closer view of the giant hanging ornaments.. I really do love those silly things.


This is an adorable tree I bought from Target last year.  I have it sitting on a table on my balcony. 


I made this snowman wreath last year.. I did have him hanging on my front door.. but it just seemed like too much with the garland wrapped around the door as well.. so I moved him out to my balcony. 


Here's a nice closer shot of my snowman that I stapled onto the wall. 


I added lights to the other banister of the stairs. Before I only had one side lit up.


If you'll notice the blue scalloped lights on the bottom.. I put those up for my neighbor.  She's elderly and she didn't have any christmas decorations of her own.  So I shared my wealth lol.




I love looking at everyone's beautiful decorations at christmas time and I absolutely love decorating at christmas time!  I've already done a good bit.. but I plan on doing a lot more still... but I just couldn't wait till I was finished.. so I want to show ya'll what I have done so far.  I really hope ya'll like it.  I'm going to be adding bunch more pics very soon. 

Thanks!
And
Merry Christmas!

Notice the glass snowmn garland lining the bookcase to the left in this picture.  I love that garland.. I've had it for years.. it's not really my personal taste now.. but it's still so beautiful I wouldn't give it up for anything. 

I posted this picture for the vase filled with the ornaments and lights on the shelf.  I've seen it done so many times and always wanted one for myself.. this year I finally made it and I love it!




This is a set of vintage snowmen I received for Christmas last year.. they are so beautiful.  I wish you could see how they gleam with the white lights shining down on them.. the picture does not do them justice at all.





Here are the outdoor lights I have up so far by my front door.  Luckily I have a neighbor who doesn't care how much I put up!  She says she loves it lol.  The snowman I freeformed and put up with a staple gun onto the wall.  The snowflake lights are blinking.  I do intend to still add more lights to this area. 



Here is a pic of my balcony at night.. It's not a very good pic.. doesn't capture the beauty of the lights very well at all.. I intend to take a daytime picture so ya'll can see the giant ornaments hanging from the top of the balcony.. they are so pretty!  I also intend to add more lights here as well.. also the white ball to the left is actually a multicolored hanging ball.. it's a lot prettier in person.

Hope ya'll like it all so far!

I love that tree!  I have a box of pretty pink ornaments, that someday I want to put on a white tree...your tree is something to tide me over until then.  Smiley
