Those After Christmas Sales

I took advantage of the clearance sales this year and build myself some new Holiday decorations...

70-75% off of the original price sure goes a long way toward recreating some of those super expensive pre-mades...

I've had this boot decoration for countless years and it sorely needed updating...

I even broke with my preference for the traditional look and splurged on some fancy, non-traditional colored flowers...
(Sorry, didn't realize that picture was so blurry until I posted it.)

I couldn't resist the beautiful purple of these flowers...
Oh well...A little break from tradition never hurts once and awhile. Megan loves purple, so it fits.

LOL...I ended up with more Christmas decorations hanging around after Christmas than I bothered to put up before. Finished them just in time to tear everything down and pack it up 'til next season. ;-)

Very pretty! I think purple is fine , lots of color is good and the gluitter doesn't hurt!

Very pretty! I like those after Christmas sales too. You have a great talent for decorating - something I am lacking in but I can admire yours.

Pretty! I even like the old boot decoration...I like old stuff though! Sounds like your Christmas was quiet and laid back too - just my style. Hope you and your family have an amazing 2012!!

It's always fun to get good buys, especially when you can use them. The boot is a cute idea.
