Family Room Coming Along

Little touches here and there still to be added,
but I am making progress.
I have to get my holiday decor done early
 because of my upcoming class, and I am
decorating a couple other homes
after Thanksgiving.
It is now or never.

All the lights in the evening
surely do set a magical mood.
Knowing I am doing minimal shopping
this year makes the decorating more
enjoyable; less rush, just me, the music,
and the memories.

Have a wonderful weekend.

It's beautiful,Z! Is that wide ribbon in the tree from Carole's ribbon store? Seeing your lights up makes me want to hang ours. It is one of my favorite decorations, simple lights first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I did put carols on yesterday while I crafted ornies, it gets the juices flowing!
Happy Weekend!
