a sailboat christmas


So, what do you do when December rolls around and you find yourself living on a sailboat?

First you find some free wifi and get your hands on as many Christmas movies as you can find. Next, you search every port for a dollar store or a general store so you can try to round up some Christmas decorations and a pine scented candle. Then, you sit around for a few days and wonder what in the world you are going to do with said decorations. 


This is where I have to give a big thanks to Riley. He absolutely does not get into decorating for Christmas, but he was a good sport about letting me deck the boat and helping me figure out just exactly how to go about doing it.


So, now we have a Christmas tree mast, and a biminy swag. And they're just perfect! Oh, and red glitter everywhere. Yay, Christmas!

  18. Your decorations are so cute! I have what I've dubbed my Charlie Brown Christmas tree. It's a live tree, but only about three feet tall. And most of the ornaments have my boyfriend's company's logo all over them... But it makes me happy!
