It’s hard to believe it’s December. I feel like Halloween was just last week! We recently decorated the house for Christmas, which took a little longer than last year, as between then and now we acquired another vintage aluminum Christmas tree, a four foot gold tree. So this year we decided to move out some furniture and create a small aluminum forest. It brings our aluminum tree total to seven and a half. Yes, I said “half” you’ll see why in a bit.
Shooting was delayed a bit, as our living room light fixture quit working. I wanted a new fixture anyway, because I didn’t care for the ceiling fan light fixture, nor did we need the fan anymore since we installed central air conditioning earlier this year. While I would have preferred a vintage light fixture, we needed one almost immediately and found this one on Amazon.
Curious to know how we keep Colonel Whiskers away from our Christmas trees and how you can cat proof your Christmas tree? Read my post from last year here.
With something finally above the fireplace and a new light fixture, I feel like the living room is now done, and I think a post finally highlighting what our place looks like normally will come in the new year. Although our hallway and entry are in need of help. The brown accordion door separating the office is due to be replaced with a wall and coat closet, and the faux marble flooring will be ripped out. We just haven’t settled on what to do about the floor. We heard the original hardwood is under it, and may try to restore the hardwood.
