Christmas Home Tour 2015

So we finally got our tree up....and when I say "up" I mean way up, so Axel, the sweetest little biting puppy ever, can't get it.   It actually looks really sweet...I just put it on an end table I had and used an Ikea curtain as a tree skirt.  (This is officially my second Ikea hack haha).  I like things simple and classic at Christmas.  Not too much clutter...actually, I think with the world being a tad cray cray right now, a lot of people are feeling the simple Christmas thing.

I trimmed the tree with most of the things I had from last year but also purchased some Martha Stewart glitter garland at Home Depot. 

I added some feathers form the dollar store to the mantel...looks so snow.

I also made some garland out of some gold & silver glitter ornaments from the Superstore and put them on my lamp shades in the dining room.

And this is the reason why there are no presents under the tree yet....Axel, the destroyer.

Toronto Christmas Market - Distillery District

We bundled up and went downtown this weekend to enjoy the Toronto Christmas Market put on every year at the Distillery District.  It's basically a winter street festival with lots of food, Christmas decor, cafes, art galleries, beautiful architecture...basically everything I like in one location. This is one of my favourite places to go in Toronto and it's even more beautiful at this time of the year.  

If you get a chance to go, make sure you stop by Balzac's Coffee and Soma Chocolatemaker.

The Toronto Christmas Market runs until Dec 20, 2015 and is a definite must see if you're in Toronto during the Christmas Season.

Working on getting our Christmas decor up this week...which is proving to be a little hard with a puppy.:(
