If you know me you know I LOVE getting Christmas cards every year. It’s truly one of my favorite things about December. For the past few years I have displayed my Christmas cards on our pantry door. Nothing fancy – I just stuck them on the door with some regular scotch tape. But I knew that wouldn’t work this year unless I wanted the cards on the bottom half of the door to be torn into tiny little pieces. Or chewed up and spit out. Or hid in a secret hiding place with all of our missing toothbrushes. Or tossed in the toilet. You never know with that boy of mine.
So I took an old picture I bought when we first moved into this house. I never really liked this picture, but the yellow and red matched my furniture and the vines are the same ones I have on my house so I bought it anyway. And it has sat in a closet for years. So here’s some advice for you – don’t buy a picture that you don’t really like even if it matches your furniture and includes vines that are also on your house. (I know – what would you all do without my sage wisdom?)
And I liked the way it tied my two rooms together. The reds and blues in the cards went great with my Christmas decor and made everything look merry and bright.
So there you go. A post on how I displayed my Christmas cards this year. Even though Christmas was three days ago and my cards didn’t last all month. :)
Update **You can read this post to see what I used the Christmas card frame for in Januray! :)
