The Fifth Day of Christmas

Happy Friday, and welcome to my obligatory DIY blogger Christmas tree post.  I won’t bore you with the details, Just feast your eyes on this beauty.

Bam!  Christmas. Just. Happened.

I’m totally digging the rusty red, steely blue and gold combination I whipped up this year.  Here’s my favorite Superman ornaments for my adult and baby superheroes in the house.  Adorable.

That's Clark Kent's business suit hiding a Superhero outfit underneath, and a white baby onesie with the Superman emblem. My boys.

The huge gold balls actually came from my Ikea Mystery Cart (a Christmas miracle), and this first picture of Ry with Santa ornament will always be my favorite.

And a few stocking hung by the chimney with care completes this little masterpiece. 

 I've got to admit, with these Christmas additions this big, piece of junk foreclosure we bought is finally starting to feel like a home.  I hope you all have time for some cookie baking, present wrapping and egg nog drinking this weekend.  Happy holiday season!


  1. I'm watching your Bath Crashers! I walked in to my husband watching it and shouted, "I know them!" Yeah. Now my husband is more than a little concerned about my sanity. ;)

  2. Hilarious! We were on HGTV this past weekend, not just the DIY network, so I'm getting a lot of that today! :)

  3. You are hilarious! Bam! Christmas. Just. Happened. Why yes it did. It is looking lovely. We just put up our Christmas tree and it makes you want to whip out the egg nog and start wrapping gifts. Loving your wreath btw
