Christmas Decorations

This weekend I decided to put up our skinny Christmas tree - I know this is very early, but I don't want the box sitting out in our condo when people come to look through it. (our condo is for sale and I store big things like a Christmas tree at my in-laws house in the suburbs) I also decided to take a trip to Target on Saturday morning to look for holiday decorations and Christmas gifts. (and I stopped by cb2 on the way)

I bought 2 of the small silver trees and put this snowman in the middle
(if you bring 5 non-perishable food items until the end of November - you can save 15% off your purchase at cb2)

Santa boots - these are actually bigger than they appear and I put them under our Christmas Tree (eventually I want to put them in an entryway by this bench at Crate and Barrel)

I have 2 of these stars sitting on each side of the advent calendar below. I really like the bigger version of this star, but I don't have space for it. My solution is to wait for it to go on clearance, purchase it, and then store it for later use.
(PS: this star will also appear on a shelf in a decorating episode of Oprah with Nate Berkus)

After a long search, I found this advent calendar that I plan to fill with messages, candy, gift certificates, and treats for my husband and dog.
(I am thinking of painting it white or red or waiting until next year)
