Santa Starfish Ornament

Our new apartment is slowly emerging from a disaster state to something resembling a home, but we’re far from finished unpacking. I haven’t had much of a chance to get into the holidays this year, given the timing of our move and how busy we’ve been, but despite the lack of a Christmas tree in our apartment I’ve been trying to channel a little holiday spirit here and there. In my unpacking (made cheerier with some Bing Crosby Christmas tunes), I stumbled across a box of sea-themed Christmas ornaments – a sweet gift from my mother-in-law a few Christmases ago – and they brightened up the mess nicely.

Happy almost-Christmas weekend!

  1. We are in the same boat we just bought a house by the lake this month, and have not finished packing so it does not feel like Christmas in our home either, at least we have the snow.

    The ornaments are lovely, nice touch to put you in the mood.

  2. Well congrats on the move, I’ve done that during Christmas, although it’s not particularly fun I do hope that you can enjoy the season. That Santa ornament is so great! 🙂 Take care!/Madison

  3. this makes my heart smile. congrats on the move….it will be home soon enough. turn off the lights, light some candles, and drink red wine in the middle of the living room on the floor. a new place is full of wonderful spirits you wont get back once you fully unpack.

    sorry for the novel. just got off work!!

    happy holidays!
