Getting In The Spirit

Before-tree is from Costco.

After adding the ornaments.
Mr. COS and I decorated the tree this week.

Butterflies from Saks

Cost Plus and Pier 1

Neiman Marcus.  I can't remember where I got the peace ornaments.

Love, peace and what Christmas is all about.

Christmas tree at Fashion Island in Newport Beach,
California. Over 100 feet tall and 17,000 lights and

We had Thanksgiving dinner here in Corona Del Mar,
California. Quaint restaurant with good food.

This is a decorating update.
A while back we finally found a floor lamp to replace
our broken one. I think it goes with the asian-pacific
design in our living-dining area.

New animal print goblets-only four were found at Home Goods.

I'm linking with My Romantic Home for
Fiona's Green Day
