It's beginning to look a lot like...

Christmas Brunch Invites
Invites to my fam for a Holiday brunch... made with Martha Stewart stamps- on my new (repro) Christmas tablecloth... I'll post another pic of it, I'm sure.
Christmas Wreath- Outdoor
Our outdoor wreath... it's very sparkly. I bought the base wreath (which is glittery and has pinecones and dried leafy stuff) and put silver sparkly leafy stuff in it... Here's a pic you can see it better in:
Yes, White Kitty is trying to eat it.
I leave it up all winter, since it's not strictly "Christmas-y".
Christmas Wreath- Indoor
Our indoor wreath. Hmmm... as I look at it now it doesn't seem terrible Christmas-y either. Maybe I should leave it up all year! I made it years ago, with a grapevine base, moss, sparkly fruit, leaves, berries, and glitter.
Both wreaths have a Labyrinth-y (as in the movie) look to me... natural, mossy, glittery... sigh.
Christmas Decor
We don't have a mantle/fireplace, so I started using our new (to us-thanks D&K!) entertainment center as such.
Vintage Christmas Tree
Vintage Christmas Tree Close
My Grandma gave me this a couple weeks ago... it's been up at her house every Christmas for as long as I can remember and I love it sooooooo very much. I'd hug it if it were more cuddly.
I lucked out! I was explaining to her how Ebay works & told her I had been looking for a tree like that one there, and she said something along the lines of "that thing? You can have that! Take it home today!". Yaaaaaaaaaay.
Gingerbread House Ornament
This is a cardboard ornament I just finished painting... I made a hole in the bottom so you can poke a tree light though to make it light up. There are more handmade ornaments a couple posts down...
Christmas Tree
The whole tree. Sorry it's not a great view, but honestly, it's shoved between three pieces of furniture, and I just couldn't get a good shot. You get the idea, anyway, right?
Next up, I'll be posting more X-mas stuffs... all along the Swedish theme! Yaaaaaaaaay Sweden! Uh, you'll see.

Oh my god, Jessica! We had that same little tree with lights when I was a kid! I've got to ask my mom what happened to it. I can hear her now: "Oh, IIIIIII don't know."

We had a tree like that growing up, I loved it!! I wonder where it is now? I have so many memories of taking the little bulbs out and putting them back in.
