We decorated our tree tonight! Over the weekend we cut it down at a farm in Richmond and Matt did a great job sawing it down (while I stood aside and took pictures!):
We fit it through the back door and put it up on its stand in our living room and it just looks so cheery. Matt had to take two attempts to get the star up there, but it finally stuck and our decorating was complete!
You can see the lovely curtains in the background that are hanging! I still need to hem them, so I will take pictures once they are complete. I thought I measured everything correctly so when Matt hung the curtain rod the curtains would lightly dust the floor and I would know how much to hem them. But I guess I didn’t do it right because we hung them last night and they are about an inch off the floor but without being hemmed!
I am going to have to take them down, hem them, and have Matt take down the curtain rod, spackle, re-paint, and then hang them again. Poor guy. So when we get that all finished, I will share!
