I think your holiday decorations look great! I love them!!! I'm feeling more festive already!
If you're not opposed to using electricity to keep you warm, they have electric *mattress pads* that do a wonderful job to keep you warm on those very chilly nights. Heat rises, so you stay warmer than with an electric blanket, and of course, the blankets on top help hold the heat in.
Gosh, what a reminder of childhood Christmases. We had a wooden handmade Advent wreath and I loved when Dad would light the candles and read the stories.
I love your advent wreath. I can see that coffee table being a toy on its own :)
Very smart idea to not do a tree with a kitten on the way - unless, of course, you wish to sacrifice glass ornaments to the sacred cat god.
A good part of my ornaments went that way one year; it was the last year I bothered with a tree.
3 cats + tree = bad idea
Ooh, I hate being cold. The penguins are so cute!
My tip for staying warm in bed: An electric blanket or mattress pad. We don't leave it on when we're in bed -- but if you turn it on 30 minutes before bedtime and let everything get thoroughly warm... it's wonderful and cozy, instead of that horrible "I'll just huddle here and try not to freeze to death until the covers warm up" feeling.
I like the little Advent wreath! Um, but not as much as the kitten will. ;)
Ooh, I like your candle wreath!
I put a red tablecloth on the table yesterday, and that has been the extent of my Christmas decorating. oh the lameness.
You might be surprised at how well a kitten and a tree can cohabitate. We put up our tree this weekend - the same day we got our new kitten. While the kitten does like the tree and plays with the small wooden ornaments we placed near the bottom, she's pretty good about the whole thing. None of our other cats have ever bothered our trees either.
What a cute christmas decoration and I love the advent wreath. It sure feels like winter out there. Stay warm!
