Blogmas Day 5 – The Christmas Decorations

Our house is only small so it’s a bit hard to get a lot of Christmas going on. I thought i’d show you what I put out today to make things feel a bit more festive!

Above is our small LED tree, I’ve only put a few decorations on so far (yes they are Starbucks decorations) because I’ve been eyeing some rose gold baubles at Target i’ve been meaning to pick up. So once I get those they will also be added to the tree.

My overstuffed bookcase always holds our dogs stockings which we fill up for them every year.  I’m thinking the dogs are going to be getting new collars this year, their current ones are looking a bit worse for wear. I’ve also put our first Christmas card this year and a Santa decoration that I got given last year from a family member on our speaker. You can’t see this but on the next shelf I also have my Christmas Eeyore… He needs to be up high because Minnie (our pug) will bark and bark so I’ll get her it down to play with. Not happening.

Last up are my little Christmas Ornaments i’ve collected and like to display. The first is a Boston Terrier which I was so excited to find, I bought this on our trip to Tassie earlier in the year from the coolest little Christmas shop in Richmond (highly recommend checking it out if you go to Tasmania). Next up is a Pug ornament that my mum bought me this year, she’s actually painted the pug black for me since it was originally the fawn colour, and you can never find anything with Black Pugs. Then we have my Eeyore, this is a Hallmark ornament from a few years ago (can you tell I love Eeyore?). Lastly is a new addition from Hallmark this year, I think it’s a French Bulldog but it looks quite like Pen and the dog is licking which makes it even more like Pen so I had to get it.

I have a few other little things around like Christmas tealight holders etc but these are the main things i’ve put out so far.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little peak into my decorating and I hope that your Christmas decorating is going well, I’d love you to share a link if you’ve posted your decorations this year!
