Last week I showed you how I upcycled my Christmas tree ornaments. Because you know I am frugal like that. Today I am going to show you how to repurpose your decor for a unique Christmas look, just like I have done with my living room.
The big elephant in my living room is the wall unit that takes up the whole wall in one end of the room. It is big and tall and has lots of room for decorating. And I always try to please it by filling it up! The smartest thing I ever did was to flip all of my books around and so now I have a neutral canvas to add all the decorations I want.
It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! Not only is it Christmas, but it is also time for our monthly Int'l Bloggers Club Challenge.
For those of you visiting for the first time, we are a group of bloggers from all over the world and we get together once a month to share our projects and traditions from each of our countries. This month we are going to focus on Christmas traditions in Greece. Let's get started because I have lots to share with you.
We are well into December and I have been so busy with Christmas decorations and projects that I've neglected to share my monthly Facebook photos with you. I am correcting that right now! Here are my Facebook photos for November.
And just in case you have no idea what this is, I upload "a photo of the day" on my Facebook page here, every day and at the end of the month I present the best picked by you. My way of saying "thank you" to all of my followers. I have added the whole series on the bottom of this post.
Welcome to our Thirty-Sixth Sweet Inspiration Link Party.
Can you believe it? I actually got my Christmas tree up? Since it took me so long to get it decorated I think I should leave it up a long time! I am so happy to have this party to inspire me. You all would not believe how many ideas I get from all of your posts. I hope you all have a wonderful and restful weekend!

We will be visiting all of you who link up with us and sharing, pinning all that good stuff. We always appreciate your visits.
I have been yapping for the last month about my Christmas tree. I was going to put it up a month ago! And then I had to put away all of my Halloween decorations. And you know what a chore that was! After that I had to work on Thanksgiving which was lovely. But the Christmas tree was patiently waiting out in the stairwell in a box. Waiting!! Oh poor Christmas tree.
Well enough of my bluster, I am done and am happy to show you how to upcycle your Christmas tree on the cheap!
And now for the back story. Last year I had decorated the tree with everything but the kitchen sink. It was nice and very sentimental but I realized many of those ornaments were in tatters. It was time for a change.
Time to become selective!
Time to turn over a new leaf... er, a new color!
And so I opted to remove as much red as possible, and do the Christmas tree in white, metallics and green. Because I am not someone who follows trends! Who's with me on this one?
I also needed to do it on the cheap because who has money to throw away every year on new ornaments? And who decided that we needed to have a new look each year anyway?
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
