Out with the Turquoise and Silver

With only a few days to go before Christmas 2014, here I am posting photos from last year (insert sigh here).

Anyway, last year, our little home was decked in cheery turquoise. The color/ theme decision was fast, what came next and what took longer was buying/making the stuff to achieve the theme.

So I went to Metro Gaisano's home department and bought these new pillowcases. And from Uniwide, the silver ceramic balls happily sitting on the center table.

I remembered I was late in decorating last year, so I appreciated the well-lighted, spanking new, and well-stocked Gaisano here in the South. It made my last-minute shopping not quite so stressful. Uniwide, as usual, was dusty. But for the always good finds waiting for the patient and budget conscious, one cannot complain.

Then, these fabric hanging lanterns are Landmark finds at P150 each. One of the very rare times I ventured out to Makati.

The wreath I bought at SM and just decorated with the same balls on our tree.

Not wanting to buy everything just to keep it color coordinated, I decided to do a little DIY on this brass Christmas tree. Now this was originally rust in color, something I find unique, bought at the Dapitan Market for less than P100 a few years ago. The year before last, this was spray painted red, and for last year, received another coat of spray paint to make it turquoise.

To make a little something with the boy, and since we have all these materials on hand, a blue tinged snow globe was our chosen mommy-son Christmas project.

-distilled water
-a nice, clean jar preferably recycled. Ours was a salsa dip jar.
- glycerine
-silver glitters
- small ornaments

Just a few minutes and we have our very own snow globe.

This year, this turquoise will be out and replaced with a more traditional red and gold palette. And this year, we prepped early. Our tree was up even before November 1.

How's that for catching up? =)
