As I've mentioned before, I always seem to be on the road for Christmas so it is hard to settle into decorating for the season. However, I do have a little Christmas box with my Charlie Brown Christmas tree (from the dollar store) and a few ornaments to dress it up. It definitely belongs in our sealaura world because it's a good little traveler and a great way to have an instant Christmas wherever we are. My other way of decorating is with nature such as this branch you see above in our kitchen. I bought the branch for 2 bucks at the Christmas tree lot and of course I had to purchase my usual Trader Joes wreath for that wonderful Christmassy smell. Lastly, I set up my shell lights and voilà! Suddently it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
I do dream of someday having a big Coastal Christmas tree and hope to decorate with some sea creatures, such as these lovely ones I spotted at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. If only I were super crafty I would love to know how to make these sweethearts. Maybe I'll see if etsy has something similar... Either way, there you have it a little bit of Christmas at sealaura headquarters. What's your easy way of decorating for the holidays?
