Hello friends! I am happy to finally share pictures of our home all decked out for Christmas. I LOVE this time of the year and wish I could leave the decorations up for longer than the month of December. Enjoy!
Here a few of my favorite new ornaments this year.
|You can find a tutorial on how to make these silhouette ornaments here.|
|I love these canvas bird ornaments and although they look handmade, I purchased them at Kohl's.|
|These were a Pinterest find and so easy. Simply cut strips of sheet music and place them inside clear craft ornaments.|
|My sister, Tori gave me an early Christmas present with the beautiful nativity. I've been wanting one for years and just never found one that I really liked. She picked the perfect one. (Sadly it was only minutes after I opened it that the lamb's ear broke...typical around here.)|
|Growing up my Mom always put candle lights in our windows so it is a must for me to have them also. It just reminds me of Christmas as a child. I found these great silicone dipped bulbs at JoAnn's. Aren't they great?|
Here are Georgia Anne's favorite two ornaments this year.
Daniel and Jack's Room
Let me preface the following pictures with a disclaimer. The children swapped rooms a few months ago, which explains the green walls in the boy's room. As soon as Christmas is over, this room will receive a fresh paint job with a neutral tan for the walls. I just keep telling myself the green walls and red draperies are very festive for Christmas.
|This ceramic elf shoe was a childhood treasure of Michael's. His Grandma Butler made it with him when he was only two. She signed and dated the bottom before baking it.|
Now for the boys favorite ornaments this year.
|Michael got this sweet nativity that is made from wood from Bethlehem.|
