Home for the Holidays...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in Texas! We had our first snow of the season (well it was actually ice), but it still counts! Everything was white and pretty for the last 2 days...and if you're from Texas you know that most things shut down. After seeing car after car slide around on the icy roads, I wasn't about to try and go anywhere. So I got to spend lots of time working on my Christmas decorations, yippee! I hope you enjoy the pictures and have a very Merry Christmas!

Burlap garland is still one of my adds so much to the tree yet it's so inexpensive! It's a win-win!

Little vintage touches make all my Christmas decorations pop and they can easily be transitioned into my everyday decor. I love the wooden blocks with chalkboard paint, they are super easy to make!

The Christmas sign was made using wood and paper mache letters that I spray painted silver. You could do any color to match your Christmas decor. All you need is a shelf or ledge to display them on. I change it up for different seasons. Check out my Halloween post with the same idea but a totally different look!

A vintage sled is perfect for Christmas decor!

I found this awesome nativity set at a resale store for $8. What a steal right!?! It was all different colors and very dark when I bought it. All it needed was a fresh coat of paint to bring it back to life. I painted it shabby white for a nice monochromatic look.

I fell in love with this wreath design on Pinterest, done by The Lily Pad Cottage, and knew I had to do it for my chalkboard this year. It took me awhile to complete, but I am super happy with the out come!

Thanks for looking and God bless!
