Christmas Decorating

Christmas is my favorite time of year! One thing I love about is decorating my house and getting to enjoy the Christmas tree all lit up! Here are some pictures of our house this year..

Love this burlap stocking! 25 cents at a yard sale!

Willow Tree nativity set  is so beautiful!

Used a curtain rod hook to hang these aqua mason jars then filled with Christmas flowers from dollar tree.

Burlap ribbon bow at top and almost all the ornaments are ones Derrick & I have gotten each other over the years! (Notice there are no ornaments towards the bottom..we have a puppy who likes to chew on them)

White shutter to hold Christmas cards.

Filled a mason jar with Epsom salt to look like snow and a tea light candle.

Still in love with this old doll bed brace that I turned into a memo board! 

Antique sled Derrick got me for our anniversary! Found the vintage skates at a thrift store.

Now onto the kitchen...

Divided wood crate found at a yard sale for 50 cents!

A jar filled with Christmas cookie cutters and one filled with Christmas cupcake liners.

Had this sign custom made from Someday Creations. She does great work and has very reasonable prices! 

 Tied some twine on Christmas cookie cutters to make ornaments for our kitchen tree!
