Merry Christmas! A day late.
Hope everyone had a holiday filled with love, laughter and wine (or your drink of choice). I trust you all were very good girls this year and Santa rewarded you accordingly. My family/friends were way too generous, not that I’m complaining 😉 I’ll share a few of my favorite gifts this week.
But for now, I want to show off my childhood home and the awesomeness that is my mother. We’ve already covered that she was totally hot in the 70s. For this post I will simply show you how totally “Martha” she is in the new millennium.
My friends joke that every time they come over to my house it looks different. New paint on the walls, furniture rearranged, or a wall completely knocked out. My mom is a serial redecorator. It would be a problem, but she’s just so damn GOOD at it that instead of rolling my eyes, I marvel at her talent. Sadly, I did not get that gene and I’m quite pissed. I know what I like and what looks good in other people’s homes, but in mine? I have no idea.
For this installment of “My Mom is Awesome at Decorating and I’m Totally Not” I want to showcase her Christmas decorations. After Thanksgiving she said, “Yeah, I don’t really want to decorate this year. I guess I will, though. Just a few things here and there.” When I arrived at my childhood home on Christmas Eve Eve, this is what I saw.
Nope, not done yet!
See why I’m jealous? If my (future, hypothetical) house is even a quarter as cute as hers, I’ll be a happy gal.
Even though the Christmas decorating season is coming to an end, maybe this will give you some inspiration for next year! Did you deck your halls?
Ps, this post is dedicated to not only my mom, but also Laura from The Luckiest in Love. She has the cutest house and I tell her all the time that I want her to decorate my apartment!
