I love Christmas! Decorations, Music, Goodies, Friends, and Family.
Here are a few of my decorations.
This hutch didn't change too much. I just added a couple of things to make it more festive. I hung a boxwood wreath on the door and put all our Christmas card on the door with magnets.
I love the sign I found at Home Goods years ago. I use the greenery above to hide the wire hanger. I take out my red dutch oven to give a little more color.
I need to write something on my little chalkboard. I made this out of an old frame that I just had in my garage. I painted it white and sanded it. I cut a board to the right size and painted it with about 5 coats of chalkboard paint. I got these cute glass jars at Farmhouse Wares. I got the deer at Target and used a few bottle brush trees and fake snow. They remind me of snow globes. I really like how they turned out.

Two of my girlfriends gave me this gingerbread house for my birthday. You would never know that it isn't real. I love that I can use it every year.
This is an advent that Jamie and I made one year. I happen to have it open to my birthday! ( You can find a more detailed description in this post.)
I love the old fashioned bottle brush wreath. I usually don't like pink and blue for Christmas, but I love the vintage feel this gives to my kitchen window. I especially love the little fence in my window sill. I found this after Christmas for 70% off at a little boutique.
My paperwhites are planted every year. I am happy that they stayed upright to bloom. Usually I need to tie them up tight because they get huge. In fact now they are so big they are up inside the light.
I decided to consolidate all my Santas this year in this niche above my piano. I'm not sure what to do with it the rest of the year yet.
I love our Christmas tree. The ornaments are ones the kids have made over the years along with lots from my sisters. We used to do an ornament exchange, so we got about 8 new ornaments a year. I love that most of them bring back good memories.
Here is our main nativity. This belonged to my hubby's grandparents. I think of them whenever I put it up. I had to glue on a wise man head this year, but I will have it forever.
Cute Christmas pillows.
All the stockings are hung waiting for Santa to appear. My youngest daughter added a tiny one for our dogs.
I really like anything that reminds me of a cabin or the woods. Here is my Christmas cabin that someday I really want to own!
I like to decorate all the rooms just a little bit for the holidays. My room I do a little bit more. I got the duvet at IKEA. I think it was around $29. The pillow in the middle I made out of a table runner from Roberts Crafts in Utah. I just opened one end and stuck some pillow forms in. I love it!!!!
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
