It's Beginning To Look A lot like Christmas...

   Decorating for Christmas has always been something I've enjoyed.  Even growing up I remember going all out and decorating my room with trees and lights.  Still to this day I love decorating, and have slowly acquired quite the collection.  This year was special because DFH and I got our first tree together.  Here's a look at our "holiday" home:

Our First Tree

My mom is the best Christmas decorator.  She has always made our home look gorgeous around Christmas Time, and she inspired me to make my own Christmas "pieces"

This Advent Tree is very special to me.  My grandaddy made it for me years ago and I still enjoy taking off the life saver and putting on the ornament each day. 

I finally made an Ornament wreath ( Post to follow haha)

This tree is also special to me because my parents made it.
I love homemade gifts.

Last year my mom, my sister and I "glitterized" these ornaments.  Such a fun and easy project.

I couldn't resist buying these hand towels

The kitchen tree:
Made up of cookie cutters, dried citrus ( oranges, lemons,and limes) and dried hydrangea blossoms

Do you remember this wreath from Here?
A simple ribbon change made it perfect for Christmas.

I wanted a place to hang Christmas cards which was out of the way, a simple Christmas ribbon attached to a Red Bow made the perfect Christmas card display.  

( Do you like DFH's chalkboard artwork?)

Happy Friday!
