Sneak Peek of my Christmas Decor . . .

I thought I'd share some photos of my home while I'm in the midst of decorating. It usually takes me the better part of a week to get it all put together!

My trees are still "in progress". As you can see, I've gone for a teal and gold theme for them this year. I have a narrow area in my living room for the trees, so I am using two narrow trees, rather than one larger tree.

I have used a lot of peacock themed ornaments.

I found this fun crown tree topper at Hobby Lobby for half price. I added the tule to it to make it a little more stable on the tree.

The crown at the top of this tree is actually a garden stake!

I'm still working on the mantle, but I love these gold mercury glass trees I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

I added Christmas bulbs to my birdhouses in the living room.

I added this wreath, as well . . . a Pinterest project I made at a Pinterest party:

I'm adding some holiday bling to my chandeliers. This is the chandelier above my kitchen table.

My bedroom is also getting attention. I've just started working on the fireplace. I already have a lot of mercury glass in the room, so it goes with the silver theme.

I looked all over for white garland for my mantle, but I couldn't find anything I really liked. I ended up twisting a basic white strand with two different strings of clear / frosted bead garland, and adding in some ornaments.

I love these large lavender ornaments atop candlesticks. 

This chandelier got some silver garland and a long ornament hanging down the center.

I added silver and mercury glass bulbs to this vase in the bedroom.

Here is a simple cone project (DIY to come soon) covered with rhinestones.

That's it, so far . . . more to come!
