Why hang mistletoe when you can hang your entire tree

Well for one you may not want your tree hanging, I don't think I would. But let me start at the beggining; I'm so excited to announce that Z Gallerie has opened it's first store in Baton Rouge (home), and it ROCKS! I too happy to finally see all the treasures I'd come to love through browsing online, finally in person when some friends and I went there this weekend. They had some really beautifully decorated trees but upon examination I noticed that all of the trees they'd decorated were inverted...they all hung or stood up-side-down. That lead me to do some research and apparently this dates back to ancient times but it was the first time I'd seen it done. I must admit it added a very contemporary edge to Christmas with the white and bronze trees standing right side up, adorned in ornaments and although I love the edge, I can't say I'm ready to dive right off the cliff by hanging or standing my tree upside down.

What do you think?

Tis the season!

Okay, I've been gone for A WHILE NOW, but I'mmmmm baaaaccckkk! As you may remember my roomie and I moved this summer and believe it or not it has taken all this time for us to really get settled into the place. I'd been promising pictures, and I actually had taken the pictures but it just didn't look right, until now. We'd contemplated buying a new sofa and changing the color scheme but that was way out of budget so we did the ever so budget friendly and quite reliable "accessory update". We've changed out our rug in the living area, bought a new television, and of course decorated for Christmas, and now the place feels like home again!

We've begun decorating our third bedroom/Hue's office space/lounge room and I can't wait to post pictures of it all. I'll have before and afters for you in the next two weeks, until then, I will be providing regular updates...I hope they'll meet you "worth the wait" standards.
