Christmas 'round the house


Before Christmas is over, I wanted to share a few more scenes from our home. I went a little lighter this year due to obvious reasons, but I have enjoyed the simplicity at the same time.

Starting off with my paperwhites on the coffee table, I enjoyed these the most.


We also got a new pillow this year. Reminds me of Dixie.


One of my Fenton pieces filled with silver bulbs...


The paperwhites needed a thick ribbon to hold them up. This red and white was my favorite this year!


I'm a sucker for a needlepoint pillow- classic. The motto for the season...


Since I'm not enjoying cocktails this year, I didn't need to set up a bar for Christmas. Instead, I made use of our cute coffee mugs! Ready for serving coffee and tea each morning. The Advent calendar on the fridge was made by my Mom- it's in the perfect place this year.


We store the extra ornaments in a candy dish and add an ornament on the tree each day.


My Mom also finds us the small ornaments for the tree- this was the one for 2012 from Hallmark.


I also made a pom pom garland for the window...


You also saw the other pom pom garland I made on my weekly chalkboard.


My other Christmas related posts can be seen here:

I will most likely be popping in sometime next week, but plan to enjoy as much time as possible with family over Christmas, and afterwards for a little much needed vacation!

Wishing you all a Very, Merry Christmas!

XOXO!
