For the past 5 or so years I have become very mellow about Christmas and only get a few special decorations out of the attic.
I am so mellow this year that I haven't done any decorating yet but I'll probably do a few things this weekend.
These shots are from my previous mellow Christmas decorating.
I remember when I used to a big tree every Christmas and move furniture around to fit it into my living room but with age I've mellowed out.
I thought these shots would fit both themes because they are all from my mellow Christmas decorating years. The shot below makes me laugh because it looks like I tossed the decorations on the table. That's about as mellow as decorating gets.
The advent calendar in the first shot reminds me of my child and I reading the Christmas story for each day of advent during breakfast.
I probably won't get that advent calendar down since we're already half way through advent and I don't have a child at home to read it with me. Since I stopped getting a big tree at Christmas I tend to hang ornaments anywhere that's handy because I have so many that I like.
