Nothing quite compares to the sparkle of Christmas. I put a little touch of Christmas Spirit in every room. Even simple touches like a pillow or 2. This cute pillow came from TJMAXX.
I can now no longer complain about the number of boxes my mom has for Christmas decorations. I have plenty of boxes packed to the brim. Just look at that mess! Oh it just makes me giddy when I start to unpack everything.
The greatest challenge I have with decorations is how to place everything. And sometimes I try to fit in decor that I’ve had for years, but doesn’t fit anymore. When that happens I have to go, loved you when I got you but now it’s time to go. And I begin a stash for a future garage sale.
Thank you Target dollar spot for all the amazingly colorful trees! Every time I go in I pick up a few, because really you never can have too many. These are perfect little fillers to add to any arrangement.
I’ve been looking for an antique looking nativity set for a few years. When I saw this one at Buttercup Market in Bartlesville, I had to have it. Thankful for small boutiques to have just what I love.
In my dining room I added a tree this year. I have a few touches to include my animals. Those stockings fit perfect on my hutch.
I love the look of the homemade garland above my hutch. I made this a few years ago. It’s so simple. I took 3 different types of ribbon, you could do a mix of any. And I simply cut them similar sizes and tied them in a knot onto a strand of lights. I found the Merry banner in the dollar section at Target. The red knit balls came from Hobby Lobby.
Adding a little traditional to the new. I have three little figures like this one from my grandma. As a little girl I loved putting these out with my mom. Once I had my own home my mom gave them to me to have. Every year I get them out I remember the joy my grandma shared with us as Christmas time.
It’s all the little touches that make every space feel like its been touched with Christmas.
