'O Christmas Tree

Last year, I participated in a linky tour of homes for Christmas decorations and had a great time looking at everyone's trees and decor, so this year - I'm doing it again!

(Yes, my zebra is totally propped up on the snowflake, he hangs lopsided so he needed a little help.)
One of my favorite angels from mom and some funky purple splash balls I bought 90% off (!!) at Pier 1 a few years ago.

I just realized, while looking at last year's post, that I haven't even hung the stockings yet! They're the same as last year though so if you'd like to see them, click here. I also haven't put the tree skirt around the tree... and might not. I don't have a tree outside, my nativity is packed up, and I've only bought one gift so far. I am picking up one of my favorite childhood nativities from mom and I'll add that photo to this post once I have it.
Next year's tour from our new house will be LOTS of fun, but this year, we're keeping the decorations low key. Off to see some more trees and decorations!

I've had a lower key Christmas so far too- but have really enjoyed the home touring so much I am inspired to get some more stuff out!
Love your last pic of the lit tree- very Christmasy-

What a pretty tree. I love the zebra and sock monkey ornaments.
My house is decorated, but it is taking a while to get the tour posted! ;)

I love your tree! Just imagine how special your Christmas will be next year, the first one of married life!
By the way, I have been keeping track of your blog on Reader so I hadn't seen the new layout. I really like it!
