Welcome to Christmas 2010 at The Yellow Cape Cod.

We went with the "Less is more" theme. I used sentimental, everyday items as the base of my decor.
Everything I used, I already had with the exception of a "new" Thrift Store Tree and new energy efficient LED exterior lights.
Surprisingly, I enjoyed the decorating process a lot more.
Everything was done with true appreciation.
What better time is there to enjoy the simple pleasures?
Our "Advent Calendar" was a huge hit with the kids.
It was simply a bowl of numbered votives.
Each night we burned one in respect to the days left until the big day.
In my daughters room, we suspended Martha's paper stars from the ceiling, as we do every year.
She decorated her tree with her favorite ornaments.
We used her first Ballet Tu-Tu as the tree skirt.
Each year my Husband gifts her a new snow globe from Eddie Bauer. It's a treasured collection.
We hung white lights underneath sheer curtain panels for a majestic nite-light.
The Living Room Mantle was put together using faux and fresh greens & our favorite Ballard Stockings.
Our new Thrift Store Tree was flocked with glitter and showcases my Hallmark ornament collection from my Dad.
In the Master Bedroom....

Fresh Greens and Blooming Paperwhites in the Master Bath.
I wish I could post the smell...
Thanks for visiting.
