Christmas Home Tour: Day 5

Can you believe it's only 11 days until Christmas!!!!!??? This year has flown by! So many exciting things have happened this year, and I'm looking forward to the future!
Today, I want to share with you our living room Christmas decorations. I initially had planned to have our living room tree be traditional so the decor would match the mantle, but when I realized I didn't have enough "traditional" ornaments and had too many "fun" ornaments, the fun tree stayed in the living room. So it's mismatched & that's ok! Today, I'm just going to share with you the decor, so you'll have to come back tomorrow to see the tree!

This is our "mantle." I completely took out all of the regular decor & changed it for Christmas. I even put out special photo frames with Christmas pictures in them!

I saw this idea on Pinterest. I found these vintage ornaments on Ebay, and put them in the bird cage. On Pinterest, the bird cage is over flowing with ornaments, but I think mine still looks great!

Here is an up close of the mantle and banner I made at my latest retreat. What do you think?

The second side shelf with Christmas boxes & a little teapot, perhaps I should move that to the kitchen. Hmm.. Also, one of the stockings my mom & I made from old shirts (I'll have another post on those later).
If you are wondering about the 3rd stocking, we have a roommate, and I thought it was only fitting that he have a stocking too.

Come back tomorrow for the tree!
