As I write this, the 16th of December is coming to a close. Time for a house tour~*
Fair warning, this sucker is gonna be photo heavy.
If you've been playing along for a while, you'll know that every year we host a Christmas Eve party with some vague theme, just to make things interesting. And by vague I mean we putter around the theme, but aren't too hardcore about it. If that makes sense.
This year it's an Atomic Xmas, and we are going all out. Vaguely~*
Everyone is coming in vaguely 50's dress, and we are exchanging vaguely 50's secret Santa gifts before having a vaguely 50's feast. And I have vaguely 50's decorations to round out the whole thing.
Starting with the living room...
The paper chain is the same that I made for our tree. Just in case you were wondering.
The hallway is done too. I found this extra thick tinsel at Target & it made me very merry indeed. Modern tinsel can be so weasley and weak. I like my tinsel lush, like vintage. But that ain't happening, so I'll settle for massive lol.
The last picture is Thing 3's door. She recently authorized my using her name on the blog (I figure with teens+ it should be left up to them). Bayley (Thing 1) gave the okay a while ago and now HarperAnn (Thing 3) has followed suit. No word from Thing 2 yet, but he's a boy, so we could be Thinging for a while to come.
And no worries. There are many other, more crafty crafts to come.
