A Cat Endorsed Christmas

Today, Little Miss Anya and I have been decorating for Christmas!

We wanted you to see what we have done so far, and there will be more coming soon!

This is our Christmas tree. I purchased it from a home decorating store called At Home.

When I was looking for trees, I noticed that most white trees appeared gray.
This one wasn't gray, because there were some iridescent needles along with the white needles that reflected light.

Anya agreed with me, we both liked this tree. She wanted to sleep under it, and I wanted to decorate it. We compromised.

This is one of my favorite parts of the new decor. The aspects of the display bring out colors in my tree and other Christmas areas around the house.

Anya helped me make this display, and the rabbit clock is there so it is out of her reach. It is always crashing to the ground when she tries to play with its ears. 

Now, let's take a look at some of the ornaments on my Christmas Tree!

This is a glitter beaded pinecone ornament. It reflects all the lights and the colors of the other ornaments. 

Anya liked this ornament, it went with her fur. I agreed that it did look nice with her, so we got it.

This is a vintage striped indented ornament. It is turned the other way, so you cannot see the indented side of it, but I like showing the stripes.

Anya didn't like this ornament, even though I did. I told her, I'll hang it in a place where you won't see it, but I will. 

This bird almost appears to look like mercury glass. I like the old look, and I think it is very unique.

Anya certainly loves this ornament, she stares at it whenever she sits under the Christmas tree. 

This beautiful sequined pink ornament came in a set of four from Michael's.
It is a medium pink, so it isn't too bright.

Anya and I fought over these ornaments. We should have bought another package, but we worked it out. 

This is a vintage tinsel-filled ornament that I found at a local vintage store.
I believe that the tinsel did not come inside the ornament originally, but I believe both the tinsel and the ornament itself are old.

Anya always tells me that she wishes the tinsel could come out. I haven't told her yet that it is possible.

This ornament came in a set of six different colored churches. It is from the Martha Stewart line, and I purchased it at Home Depot.

Anya took three for herself, and I took three.

These ornaments I bought in a clear set from Michael's. 
I believe they are meant to be painted, but I decided to fill them with flaky pink and white glitter.

These are Anya's favorite. She loves batting at them and looking at the glitter. 

This is a reindeer ornament. I enjoy his gold color, and how he reflects the light of other ornaments.

This ornament isn't Anya's favorite. He's too boring, she told me. 

This snowflake ornament has glitter and has some clear crystal beads on it as well.

Anya likes this ornament, but she wishes it were smaller.

This cupcake ornament makes the tree a bit more unique; I think. It adds a bit more color. 

Anya likes the cupcake ornament, but she thinks it should be displayed in a better place on the tree.

And finally, my last featured ornament... I found this one at my local vintage store, and the colors are fading from it, but I like it anyways.

Anya agreed.

More Christmas decoration posts coming soon!

Thank you,
