Christmas decorations up! Let the holidays begin!

For someone who went to art school (my undergraduate degree is a BFA) I have little decorative flair. But here are my attempts at holiday decorations.  This is that top shelf that temporarily held the plants.

I considered getting a tree.  There’s even a spot for it now that I had to get rid of my beloved ficus.  And I thought, ‘The cats are what?  Seven and eight years old?  They’re not kittens anymore.  Maybe they won’t have to climb the tree and break every last bulb.  Maybe?  Right??’  Yeah, no tree.

So more bulbs to put around the apartment. I don’t think this shot is capturing the color and prettiness of these bulbs. Maybe I’ll try again. Below are the lights that I strung on my amoire instead of a tree.

  1. What a GORGEOUS armoire! I like the lights on it. I too have a BFA and no decorating skill. No real fashion sense, either. Nicely done, and please keep the photos coming.

  2. Haha. Isn’t that funny about the BFA, how it doesn’t really translate in so many practical areas?
