Our finished Christmas tree- #Searsrealcheer

Okay, someone needs to pinch me, because I just realized that Christmas is in TWO days!!
I know, I know…how could I not realize that today is December 23rd?  I think it’s all been due to the chaos going on with two room makeovers, our bedroom and dining room, and the fact that time really does fly when you have so much to keep you busy.
I got so caught up with the projects going on in our house I forgot to show you guys our tree. Our pretty Christmas tree that we got to decorate in silver and gold, white, and pops of turquoise!

Remember how I said we went shopping for Christmas decorations at Sears this year? We picked out a really pretty collection of shatterproof ornaments in multiple colors, some glittery silver ribbon to go around the tree, lights, and a new beautiful star to put on top of our tree.

I love the turquoise with the silver, white, and gold. The tree goes perfectly in our living room.

And the star is one of my favorite new additions to our tree. It’s covered in glitter, and has pretty crystal colored rhinestones on it.  We haven’t had any stars or tree toppers in the previous years, so it was great to find something so pretty to go on the top of our tree when we were at Sears.

And since we had so many ornaments left over, I used a lot of them to decorate a smaller tree we had, and had family take it to my great-grandfather’s rest home to put in his room. He has a couple roommates, and I really love the idea that they get to see something pretty and festive at Christmas time too.
My two kiddos put the decorations on his little tree, and loved all the pretty, and bright colors.

I know Christmas is literally, right around the corner, but if you’re looking for any last minute ornaments or decorations (you know, for those Christmas ornament exchange parties!! or hostess gifts!!), then you should definitely stop by Sears and see all the pretty tree trimmings they have right now. Or you could just get an early jump on next year’s decoration shopping, because it’s never a bad idea to go shopping, right?
