ya'll come on in,
i have a few more images to share
of Christmas around our home.
I had several emails regarding the bottle brush trees.
most of them i've collected over the last several years & came from various places.
many , like the ones below,
are by cody foster.
i've purchased several through bayberry cove & some through christmas traditions.
the ones below are my most favorite.
some sweet ornaments from London
( my aunt & uncle visited...not i. maybe one day)
our favorite peppermint sticks
(wonderful in hot chocolate)
peppermint soap &lotion from williams sonoma
funny thing. i tried to sell this wreath at my garage sale this summer.
but i guess christmas in july wasn't working.
i really had wanted to make another with no greenery showing
as this one gets on my nerves.
but i went ahead & used it again this year.
found a fun glittered card & stuck it in there too
the ginormous red lantern was an after christmas score from pottery barn.
one of my favorite bible study memories
was when we had an ornament swap.
imagine my surprise when i opened this baby!
( i think the ornament i brought was from target. wow)
i've collected pieces from mackenzie childs for years
but their ornaments are a little luxury.
i love it so much i'm sorta afraid to put it on the tree.
in case it falls ,you know.
we're pretty simple & neutral downstairs
but all party upstairs.
this is emi's tree~
savannah's funky tinsel tree~
little bit's room~
a handmade (painfully i'm certain) pinecone wreath by a precious friend of mine
about 15 years ago that i treasure & still have not broken!
my sweet madison's room is quite full this year with some extra furniture.
i talked her into, i mean encouraged her to hold off on the full size tree we normally put up.
i had a little extra surprise for her that hopefully will come to fruition soon
that i thought my 'make up' for it.
she's quite the trooper.
i sprayed a bay leaf wreath i've had for quite some time silver & i love how it turned out.
a fun stocking from firefly hill on etsy
red is my favorite color. even though downstairs is mostly whites & creamy tones,
i have a little red in each room.
alrighty....remember i told you how my girls have given me some grief regarding the 'chosen style' of decor? well , the more i bring it up, the more they laugh & add some more comments.
one of the funnest things about my blog is having my girls occasionally leave comments.
this little anonymous one was from savannah last night.
loved it..."love the blog post paigey.
good thing i'm not part of the "small percentage of inhabitants in your home
who believe you haven't decorated 'enough' for Christmas."
i LOVE the gigantic twinkling tree,
the mantel overflowing with greenery and poinsettias,
the vintage ornaments outside that must be brought in daily so they won't freeze & shatter,
the little elf on the shelf,
the nativity scene you walk by,
the ginormous bowl of ornaments to be moved so you can serve the holiday meal,
& the most famous the Christmas tree in a galvanized bucket.
our--- i mean YOUR house is adorable!
merry christmas pags"
