I love to decorate.
Christmas gives me a great excuse to do so.
So much of what I have has been given to me by my mother and my grandparents.
I love to look around the house and be reminded of my childhood Christmases.
|Please excuse the quality (or lack there of) of my crappy camera phone (don't judge me because I can't afford an iphone)|
|Here's my fabulous $3 shell earrings I found in San Diego|
|The collar didn't turn out that great, but I made the whole thing without a pattern, so I was pretty proud regardless.|
|I found this general idea off Pinterest, though I kinda just got inspired there and cut these out of the paper I got for my garland project below; it says: "Grow Wise Little Owl"|
|Suitcase was my grandma on my dad's side (carried around her avon from it for years), coffee pot was my great-grandma's on my mom's side (borrowed from my mum), wooden lantern made by my uncle for my cousin's wedding (awesome, right?)|
|The two on the right are avon.|
|Birdcage given to me by an old employer, vase from the Muellers, scrap fabric from making pillows; chalkboard in the background has a quote from the song "My Eyes" by Travis, along with Andrew's famous chocolate chip cookies. YUM!|
|Salt shaker we got at Buffalo a while back|
|Paint swatches from Ace, stamped with instructions for purses/presents, awesome card we bought from a neat new store in the mall called Typo.|
|Tissue paper flowers (big thanks to Loretta for letting me use her already made orange ones!), white plastic table cloths from dollar store we already had up from Emily & Sara's birthday party.|
|Got this idea off Pinterest, quote from Tracy's Pinterest Board: "you & me are meant to be"|
|These little birdies are old avon soaps, so stinking cute!|
|This was project I found off Pinterest: Dixie Cup Garland|
|My gift wrapping job; I found these little baby spoons at the antique store, just loved them!|
