I've had most of the house decorated since the day after Thanksgiving. I'm practically itching to get my tree up as soon as dinner is over with. I like getting to rediscover the decorations I got on sale after Christmas the year before. Sort of like a pre-Christmas present :)

But, today was the day I finally decided to get my rear in gear and decorate our dining room.

I'm pretty much in love with the wreaths on the back of the head chairs.
I froze my rear off cutting down branches from my backyard evergreens to make them, but I think it was worth it since it was free! Free, free, oh I do love free!!! I tied some bunches together with floral wire, stuck some little silver do-dads in (I'm sure there's a better name for them), and wrapped them around the chair backs with the upholstery seat webbing stuff (again, I have no idea what these things are really called). Silver do-dads were $1 on sale at Michaels and the webbing was $.99/yd at Hobby Lobby. Holla!
