Christmas is my most FAVORITE time of year! Every year I can't wait to bring out the boxes and boxes of sparkly, glittery and shiny trinkets. This year…I had a very hard time. Just as I have had a hard time decorating our new house, I have had a hard time decking the halls with holiday cheer. Why is it so hard?
Good news is I can spend the next several years perfecting the fine art of "Christmas Decorating".
My mom and I made the wreaths for all the windows. It didn't take too long and was so much cheaper than buying 9 wreaths!
I made the pillow covers from a wool blanket that I had. I know…it's a shame to cut up a gorgeous blanket, right? But we would never use the little throw blanket and I really wanted to use it for the pillows.
We hunted for the tree on the in-laws' property. We found it right away. After my husband, the kids and I decorated the tree, my husband says, "you're style is always the same, but every year the tree is just a little different". He's right. The tree changes slightly every year. This year I decided to only use vintage ornaments on it.
I am working on my mantel. Perhaps you'll see it before long. I haven't liked it since we put it up. So, something needs to change.
Hope this gave you a little bit of Christmas cheer!
