A Little Bit of Christmas

It has been a while...

I have missed it a bit but, to be honest, it has been nice to focus on other areas of interest.

To see what I have been up to, click here.

However, I did want to share a bit of my holiday decor. 

Enjoy a glimpse at some of our Christmas decor:

I added a mix of fresh and "forever" greens to the dining room. They compliment the penguin nicely. I love handmade Christmas. The vintage ornament garland looks great draped across the burlap wreath.

Our crazy tree... I love our tree. I have saved my ornaments since I was a little girl. Some of them I made. Some of them came from my grandparents. Some of them were made or given to me by a student. They don't match. Some are not pretty but they all mean something and that is powerful.

I tossed a few other touches of winter into some hidden corners of the house. 

My mantel will be the showcase next weekend. Here is a quick glimpse:

The front porch has received the most recent makeover. It is colorful and beautiful. I might have to wait until the weather perks up before I show it off.

I have a few other things that I can't wait to show you. See you next weekend!



  1. I love your wreaths, both inside and outside.

  2. Where did you get your penguin? I am looking for some like that!!
