A Cozy Christmas Bedroom

Something I did for the first time last year was decorate our master bedroom for Christmas. It was so comfy and cozy, and I vowed to do it again this year. Most of it is the same, but we did do a couple new things… And just like in yesterday’s post, a bit of this […]

The Perfect Christmas Kitchen Sign and a New Runner

My kitchen doesn’t get a ton of decorating this time of year. A couple mini trees, festive tea towels and our Christmas cards hanging (my FAVORITE decoration!!) are about the extent of it. I had been thinking how much I’d love the perfect Christmas sign to hang above my sink – I always have a […]

Twas The Week Before Christmas…

…and this bad little blogger still has so much left to show you! <<<<insert all the face palm emojis here>>>> Alright, there’s dining room and kitchen and bedroom stuff…not really all that exciting, as there was a lot of repeating in the decor department this year. I did do a new simple centerpiece in the […]

Decorating the New Kitchen Shelves for Christmas

Remember a couple months ago when I shared my new kitchen shelves? I’m so happy with these guys – it was SUCH an inexpensive project (thank you, Ikea!), and they solved a major decorating dilemma I’ve battled for years. That itty bitty wall was finally solved…oh happy day! And now that it’s Christmastime, I’ve added […]

Quick Christmas Countdown Fridge

This is going to be a quick post, because this was a super quick project! (That, and I have 987 things still left to do, and it’s 7pm – including decorating our tree tonight!) 😉 Remember on that Favorite Things Friday post, when I shared this super cute chalkboard art at Hobby Lobby? I knew […]

A DIY Christmas Craft Paper Scroll-y Thing…Or Something…

Can you tell from the title of this post that I really have no idea what I just made?! lol! Here, let me give you a photo so you have a visual before I begin… Maybe you know what these are called? I’ve seen these brown craft paper scroll things all over blogland and I’ve […]
