It’s that time of year!!! I absolutely love Christmas and everything that it brings. Okay, maybe not the freezing weather, but everything else? Love!
This year I made bigger wreaths for my windows and covered them in silver and red balls.
I wrapped the posts in garland (my favorite reason for even having porch posts), channeling my inner Pottery Barn copy-cat.
I also whipped up some wood boxes to hold two little Christmas trees.
When you walk into my home, you first see this rustic, DIY advent calendar. Two years in a row and I still have not filled the little bags!
The driftwood shelves are still empty. Some day I will get pictures on them…I think.
I have realized that I seem to love antlers. Not hunting, just antlers.
Only once have I found the antler on the ground after my dog stole it for a chew toy.
I kept the dining room super simple as well.
No fireplace? Stair railings work too!
For years I have coveted illuminated wreaths, and this year I finally took the plunge and made them. I love them:) My husband asked why I have the light timers set to come back on in the early morning. It’s so I can see the house all lit up when I leave for work in the morning, of course!
I may be adding a few more simple Christmas decorations here and there, but this year is all about simplicity.
This year I’m linking up with Jennifer Rizzo and Nesting Place– – be sure to check out her blog for dozens of houses decorated in Christmas glory!!
