We're taking our Christmas decorations down this week, so I thought it appropriate to finally post the photos I took of them weeks ago.

(click to enlarge)

I didn't do a ton of decorating, and most of it was cheap d.i.y. stuff. I should thank my sister for the pretty snow globe, Jesse's mom for the pop-up edition of The Night Before Christmas, and Anthropologie for the free felt garland they wrapped their holiday packages with....yeah, I so hung it on our wall. With the addition of some of my favorite holiday songs (here, here, here and here) and scents (anthropologie's hot buttered rum candle) filling our little apartment, I felt cheery all December long. Please kindly ignore our ugly ikea futon - we keep saying that we're going to buy real furniture when we buy our real house....let's hope that finally happens this year.

And because I am completely unoriginal:
