While the plumbers are busy knocking holes in my walls, and we are arguing with Sears about the definition of "existing" ductwork, I thought I'd post some holiday cheer!
We got our tree yesterday and set it up in our tiny apartment because it's very obvious we won't be moving this year. :) Charlie the cat decided to help out.
I also stole an idea from a friends blog here: http://ourlifewithatoddler.blogspot.com/2009/11/ornament-wreath-revealed.html
And she stole it from either
I changed it a big though. I don't own any metal hangers, so I used one that I've had for years that was covered in yarn and instead of stringing the bulbs, I removed all of the tops and hot glued them all together. Then I added some cute silver and gold jingle bells and plastic candies. All of the ornaments I got at the dollar store. The gold and silver big balls were a 7 pack for a dollar!
