Holiday House IV

Finally, the living room.  Our brand new 9 ft. faux tree, I bought for 75% off last year when we returned from a southern Christmas, all the ornaments we have collected for years, and a touch of pink!

The "touch of pink" was not so easy.  I was hoping to find a pink that didn't fight with the pink pillows on the sofa. I had pretty much given up when a pair of curtains jumped out at me at Goodwill, where else?

So, I bought the two panels for $5.99, made bows, covered a little foot stool, and added pink backing to some felt ornaments. 

Pink on the tree and pink on the mantle, tie the room together.

I think I am done for this year, but who's only December 6th!?!?!

Next year, no red balls. Silver, gold, and blue will do!

You have outdone yourself, Melinda. I love the touches of pink in your decorations that tie in with your living room decor. My daughter-in-law asked if your decorations were inspired by breast cancer research because of the pink! She felt that should be your theme. Great job - it's so beautiful as is everything you do. A very Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

I hope you're doing OK with all that snow you've been getting up in Maine! I know you folks wanted a white Christmas, but come on! Isn't this a bit too much? :) Stay warm and have a very Happy New Year.
