Simply Christmas

A Simple Christmas is the natural follow up to my summer of decluttering. Just imagine, an uncluttered Christmas! I only put out what really brings me pleasure.  So here it is:  Simply Christmas!


The kitchen table centerpiece,


sitting room decorations
I won the B*E*L*I*E*V*E banner here 



the living room and...


... dining room

the tree


a few special ornaments


the pink tulle tree skirt ~ It looks just like cotton candy!



and simply put...that's it!

  2. Beautiful tree! Love the tulle under it! The girly tree would love that. I think a simple holiday is nice. I'm not there yet but maybe soon. The more up and down the basement stairs I go the more I think...less is more!

  8. I do hope you are all okay, the weather is awful here in Ga. We have been watching the front move across 3 states with no end in site. Much damage around us.

    Your place is lovely and so bright. I adore your white tree with pink touches. You are sure in the festive mood. Perfect for Pink saturday post.

  14. Beautiful! It reminds me of my great-grandmother's house - pink was her favorite color & she had the best taste in decor! I've now inherited many of her vintage pieces:)

  21. I am so with you on simplifying and so impressed with your results. We haven't decorated yet since we have only been here two weeks. Having a bit of a challenge now that we downsized, but your post is an inspiration.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  29. Hi Sherry,

    I'm there with you on "make it simple". I love what you've displayed. I need to go back to
    Walgreens and get some of the pink tiny balls I saw and forgot to get!

    Happy {pink} day to you,
    Stephanie ♥

  30. Wait...that's a Walmart tree???? It looks nothing like the scraggly one I saw yesterday. There were like 3 ft gaps between the branches! Maybe I should go take another look....

    BTW, your decor is LOVERLY! Magical and perfect :)

  31. I LOVe it! I tried to simplify this year too. Decided the easiest way to do that this first year was to concentrate on decorating just a couple of room in the house, and not really do much of anything to the other rooms. That worked for me, as I cut down the decor by almost half. I have already set a goal for next uear, to eliminate 2/3 of the decor.... baby steps.
    and then I'm going to donate the stuff I dno't use... it will save so much time and storage space and be such a freeing feeling.
    Merry Christmas to you!!
