Holiday decor, after the fact

Once again, I'm a little behind with this post since it's now New Year's Day. But you know what? I did some Christmas decorating this year... for the first time ever. And I took photos, so I'm going to blog it, by golly. Gosh darn it. Gee willikers. Ok, I'll stop. Here are the photos:

That was the extent of my holiday decorating, but it's a big step for me. I am not a big fan of any type of seasonal decorating. I hate spending money on things that are only used for a few weeks a year, and I dislike having to store said items. 

I still think I'm more Scrooge than Santa sympathizer, but I was inspired to spread some holiday cheer this year in honor of my grandmother Eileen. Unfortunately for the many who loved her deeply, Eileen left the earth earlier this year. I was close with my grandma, and she loved Christmas more than anyone I've ever met. My mom told me I should honor my grandma by trying to enjoy the things that she enjoyed. 

So I did. I really like these simple decorative elements, and I like that they remind me of my grandmother.

Details on 'the stuff' for anyone interested:
That's all. Merry Christmas from the Whitmans!

You two are so cute! I took photos of my xmas decor too, but they didn't go up on my blog - they went up on another one as a feature. Because I'm lazy, or stupid...don't know! I also love your stockings and the mantel decor. Very nice!
