There are so many projects that I wish I had the time to upload but it just isn’t always possible for me to do so. Last year, I didn’t get to share my Christmas decorating so I thought I’d share it now to inspire myself to begin gathering ideas for this year. 😉 First, I gave red and gold a try and then I took everything off my tree and started all over again.
Red and gold was pretty but I just love white so much that I couldn’t do without it!! My first project was this cowbell swag that I made for my smallest old window.
Next, I found an old cd storage box, painted it and filled up with candles and Christmas greenery to make a center piece for the coffee table.
It’s been a while since I gave this mirror its makeover. When I first found it, it was a sad looking gold and blue. So, I sanded it, primed it and painted it. Then, I sanded it again to give it that worn out look that I love. Doesn’t it just look so festive with that wreath on it and my favorite snowflake garland?
Here’s a couple more pictures… And now I’m off to get my Christmas décor down from the attic to begin preparing.
In the meantime, I hope you guys are enjoying decorating for fall.
The Christmas tree is up and so are the rest of my decorations for the living room. Since I have been super busy with work I am not sure if I’ll be doing much more decorating than that so I’ll share these with you guys for now.
I was testing my camera in the above shot and I actually like it a lot! 😉
That chalkboard that my coffee filter wreath is on is one of my latest projects that I haven’t had a chance to share here. I am in love with chalkboards and they are all over this place. I even used some chalkboard tags on the tree with Christmas words written on them.
That ruffle pillow cover is only one of a few bunch that I sewed not too long ago out of a queen size white sheet (in case I messed up, it wouldn’t be too pricey)! 😉
I love this type of packaging and those wrapped little presents are from last year but I couldn’t help myself and I just had to used them again this year!
Stockings haven’t been hung but I’ll share those later if I get a chance! How about you guys? Have you put up your tree and decorations yet?
Thanks for coming here and I wish you the most wonderful holiday season, my friends!!
I haven’t been feeling so well so I’ve decided to take a break from all of my projects-pending and future ones. But I just wanted to publish this post about some more of the Christmas decorating around this place. At first, I had decided that we wouldn’t have a tree this year but my little one was very concerened that “Santa wouldn’t know where to leave the presents”. So, I changed my mind but I had already given away most of my old tree ornaments so I had to start off fresh and I had no idea what I really wanted to do but I’ve been on pinterest a lot lately (I love that place!) and I’d been seeing all those cloth covered balls and I loved them! So, I set out to make my own and a couple other things!
I’ve got lots more but I just haven’t had a chance to shoot everything or upload anything. If I’m not too bummed out I’ll attempt to publish another post with the rest! Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving day and have a great night!!
