Christmas at Our House


Hi friends! It's been a rough week so I don't have any creations to share with you. But I thought I'd show you the Christmas decorations we put up last weekend. This is our first Christmas in our new home, we just moved in Sept.

Here's our tree. It's artificial and it probably older than I am. We got it from D's parents. We only used the non-breakable ornaments since our kids are so little. I tried to take a picture of this in the dark but it didn't turn out.
Here's my FAVORITE thing we did this year, our mantle. I think it looks beautiful. Just warm and homey. I love the lights, giving a soft glow to our decorations. And look, there's my FAVORITE picture of Parker. :)
Have a great weekend everyone!

  4. Your new home looks lovely. The mantel is gorgeous. I hope your next week is better. I was just thinking how often your creations have made me smile or made my day feel better and how seldom I think I have the time to mention that. So I am now. I hope there are as many smiles for your Christmas in your new home.

  6. So pretty!! I miss having a mantel. I miss having a fireplace! It's been a lot of years since we had one...Some day, right? I think you're getting me inspired to do some more organizing upstairs. As soon as my finals are over.
