'tis the season

I just love holiday decorations! But I am always so dissappointed in my inability to get it right. Why, when I decorate for Christmas, does my house just look cluttered? And random? And wrong?

This year I am doing things different. This year we are in a different (bigger) house, so the cluttered feeling is not so much a problem. This year, I am incorporating some consistency. This year, I am consulting pinterest. This year, I am putting away some "regular" display items to make room for the extra Christmas decor.

I can't stop thinking about this, those colors, and shine.

What works for you at your house?
