Christmas: White Trees

We all know that I’m addicted to white. Yes, it’s true. When it comes to Christmas, however, I can’t resist adding green and red to the mix. I know, I know, it’s shocking. I¬†love having a¬†real live green tree (mine is from Ikea, and it smells so good!), and my colourful decorations remind me of the places I’ve travelled. That being said, when I saw this white tree at Rona last weekend, I wondered if I¬†should give a¬†white artificial tree a try one year.

I probably would end up just putting lights on it and calling it a day. Maybe I’ll¬†wait for it to go on super sale, and then¬†try it out next year.

I thought these Christmas decorations were also pretty cute:

Christmas: Holiday Goods at Ikea

I wish¬†there was an Ikea in Kitchener-Waterloo.¬†I miss spending chunks of my days there and browsing the¬†collections with a coffee in hand. I haven’t yet made my way there to see this year’s¬†holiday collection in person (or to stock up on Glogg), but¬†I’m looking forward to doing so in a couple of weeks (if there’s anything still in stock, that is!). For now, I’ve rounded up some of the items that have caught my attention.

Marketplace: Christmas at The Home Depot

Will Martha Stewart be coming to your home for Christmas this year? She can if you first head to the Home Depot and stock up on some of her holiday decorations. Here are some of the items that caught my attention in the Arctic collection.
