  1. Wonderful tutorial. Just so much information, I want to start on my Christmas tree today and it’s only March. Thank you so much

  2. I enjoy reading all of your blogs. My husband and I laughed at the fact that we never thought of adding the topper to the top section of the tree before assembly. Genius!
    It would help me if you did an educational article about decorating a mantel and protecting the surface. Our new house will have an antique French mantel and I’m afraid I will ruin it.

    1. There’s still some adjusting and sprucing but it saves me some awkward time on the ladder! And I’m always open to ideas for posts. I’m adding this to my content research list!

  3. So pretty! I love it. You have the best sense of hummer. Hugs to you.

  4. I had never thought of layering to create fullness and love the idea of mixed greenery. Great tip, thank you!
    Did you add the crystals to the Spanish style chandelier in the entry, or did it come with them? Can you post of photo of it.

    1. Thanks Caroline! I did add the crystals with some magnets. I don’t remember where I got the magnets but I might be able to figure it out if you want me to.

      There’s a closeup photo in this post under the “room by room” tab that shows the whole thing: “4 Ways to Make An Ugly Outdated Room Pretty”. We’ve had it for a few years so it’s discontinued, but I can send you a picture of a similar one if you want to send me an email. I can’t post any links in the comments. Hope that helps!

      1. Yes, thank you. Brava on the redo! WOW

  5. beautiful I do this too!!
