Even though I am no where near done decorating for Christmas at home, I am done at work! I took the last two days to make our home away from home extra festive!
We don't have a Christmas tree but our bookshelf down stairs is the perfect shape for a tree. We strung some purple lights on it and hung a few ornaments. We even put a star on top!
The mantle has some garland and ornaments. We may just have to get some stockings to hang.
The staircase is probably my favorite. It is the perfect place to put garland and ornaments in our school colors of course! I walk up and down these stairs multiple times everyday and it is nice to have them looking so lovely!
This old house really is just made for decorating for Christmas!
One more look at our make-shift tree...so pretty! This bookshelf has first edition books on it from as far back as the 1800's. So many treasures can be found in this old house!
And last but not least, I wanted to share this photo with you. I was asked by my veterinary clinic to take their office picture for their holiday card. We went out to a horse farm and got to take pictures with these lovely draft horses. They are sisters named Dove and Dawn. Dove is 24 and Dawn is 22. They were beautiful and thanks to the snow that fell that day, we got some perfect wintry photos!
On December 13th, I will be taking pictures at the veterinary clinic of animals with Santa Paws. I hope Cody will bring my dogs in so they can have their picture taken too!
