Tis’ the Season

The holidays can tend to make me giddy. And it is probably a good thing that I closed my curtains while I was decorating this evening. Having my neighbors see my happy dance when I finished would have been a bit embarrassing.

Thank you IKEA for carrying Christmas stuff this year. (Last year around this time, they had just opened and then because of the flood, they ran out of a lot of stock.)

The snowflake mug was make here in Thailand. Irony. Do they carry them in other IKEA’s too?

At the store they displayed the garland as a wreath, so I took my cue from that and finagled this beaut! I LOVE the gray yarn balls. Sorry that the photo isn’t so great. 

I was thrilled to see the Poinsettias! And I had to hang my stocking that I got in the mail last year. 

Last but not least, I got this cute little plastic tree. The ornaments are something I got last year in Manila.  I tried putting the ball lights on the tree but they were far too big. And the awesome nativity with the yak is from Nepal

Since my apartment is now brimming with seasonal spirit, I think a Christmas part is in order. I’ve never actually had people, other than a few that I work with, so I wonder how many people would fit for a party… I guess I will have to find out.

Now I’m going to dance around to some Christmas music then eventually turn off the Christmas lights and get some shut eye before church.
