It's finally starting to look like CHRISTMAS up in here!  I had forgotten how much I love turning off all the lights and letting just the Christmas lights twinkle.  It's simply Magical!

I picked up most of my Christmas decor at Hobby Lobby last year when it was a whopping 80% off!  I love rockin' bargains like that!  I've always had a heart for the fancy christmas trees with a reds and golds, so that is exactly what I bought.  My favorite part is the variety of poinsettias I stuff in here and there.  They are perfect for adding texture and depth, plus they fill in all the empty spaces you aren't sure what to do with.
I'm warning you now--- there are lots and lots of pictures!

The poinsettia's mentioned above.

The most cost effective decorations are things you already have at home and then adding cut off tree limbs and scented (cinnamon) pine-cones = Christmas!

So, between our Real Christmas Tree, Cinnamon smelling pine cones, and my Coming Home scent for my scentsy pot --- We have the smell of Christmas in the Shackley home!!  And I love it.

My Favorite Holiday decorations:
My puppy dog - Molly with her RED bow in!

 The next 3 glass bulbs were a Christmas present from my Mother!  They were $20 bulbs that she caught on sale after Christmas last year for $1.99 - Nice job Mother dear!

This bulb means a lot!  We received this as a gift last year from our good friends Stephanie and Brad King! 

 The Christmas China was a wedding gift from my favorite sister!  I love them and couldn't wait to use them during the holiday season!  Thanks Janessa!

This Christmas apron I got on sale at Hobby Lobby!

Preparing my vegetable beef soup!

Merry Christmas y'all!
