Hello friends!! I have started decorating for Christmas and wanted to share a few things. In a perfect world I would have had my “Christmas tour” on the blog some time ago, but better later than never right? To begin, I bought these just a week ago at Everlasting Blooms.
Now aren’t they just so pretty?! For some reason I tend to stay clear of red for Christmas decor (I know I am crazy), but these are so beautiful! I have such a hard time with color. Even red on Christmas, but just a pop of color goes a long way with a neutral palette.
I had no idea where I was going to use this “color.” But eventually, after trial and error I found it a home. Here in the galvanized bin. Doug seems to think someone made this in HVAC school because he had to back in the day, but I have no idea where this really come from. I do know I love it! I bought it full of cabbage at the little red barn a few months ago. I filled the bottom with fresh greens and stuck a few sprigs of pinecones I had out from my fall decor. Do you like it??
Next, I would love to show you all my favorite thing to decorate. My open shelving unit from World Market. Funny story about this- I bought it for in kitchen. Where the coffee bar is. I had it planned to fit just perfect! Or so I thought. It ended up being a half an inch too small for the space :(.. I am sure you all can imagine my disappointment. After some time passed, I never got over my love for this shelving unit. So I bought it again. And let me tell you, this wasn’t easy. I was pregnant. And this was SO heavy! But I was determined. I sold my antique hoosier I had planned for the space. (Which in itself was such a hard decision!) But am SO happy I bought this.
Really I don’t change it too much except for the top shelf and the banner across the front. For fall, I had the Target dollar spot acorns, but for Christmas I found these light up deer on Antique Farmhouse. They are battery operated and I look forward to turning them on every night 🙂
Here is a close up of the stag on the top shelf. Isn’t he cute? I put him in the 10$ wreath from ikea with the infamous target dollar spot skies to the right. And those trees I stole from my mom.. shhh… ; )
Well there wasn’t much a tour in there. So deceiving I know! I will try hard to take more pictures this week and add to this 🙂
Please let me know what you would all love to see and share with me your own stories and homes!!
