. . . compare/contrast . . .

. . . true story . . .
. . . people have laughed at me . . .
. . . for hauling out the laptop . . .
. . . pulling up old blog posts . . .
. . . and referring to them . . .
. . . while decorating for christmas . . .
. . . seriously . . .
. . . i have a LOT of shtuff . . .
. . . and i figure ~ hey! if it looked good last year . . .
. . . repeat! . . .
. . . so ~ here's christmas 2007 . . .

. . . and christmas 2009 . . .
. . . which looks a little different . . .
. . . reason being? . . .

. . . awesome friends keep giving me wonderful things . . .
. . . like this huge snowman platter . . .

. . . and red apothecary jar . . .
. . . hello, gorgeous! . . .

. . . on the other hand . . .
. . . see if you can spot the difference
between tree "two years ago" . . .

. . . and tree "today" . . .
. . . aside from the obvious change in carpet! . . .
. . . anyone????? . . .

Where did the black ones go??? At least your tree isn't black! I have a friend and her tree by her bed is BLACK. However, it's GORGEOUS.

I am so jealous! I absolutely LOVE your decor! I want to switch to all red,silver,black, and white this year but not having much luck! My tree has been up for about a week and a half but STILL no ornaments,sad!
