One thing I love about this house are the archways in my living room. For a small, builder-grade house, that feature adds a little character that I love.
And they're perfect for Christmas! I absolutely love Christmas cards--it's a great way to keep up with those friends and family members you don't get to see often. Plus, who doesn't love getting a little something in their mailbox that isn't a bill or junk? Sometimes the old-fashioned things warm the heart the most.
So since I love these little morsels of love so much, I had to find the proper way to display them. Here's where those arches come in... I got a red and green tinsel garland that is the perfect length to drape around the arch leading from the living room into the kitchen/dining. With some simple ornament hooks and clothespins, it was transformed into a fantastic display for my cards :)
*Sidenote: ignore my messy table and desk area. They have become my catchall for the craziness.
You can also get a glimpse of the ornaments on my dining room light fixture (thank you, Pinterest!). This is the first year I've done that, but I love the extra flair it gives to the space without having something on the table.
Keep 'em comin' peeps--I'm ready to fill that garland up with your beautiful faces again!
