Christmas Decorations

Our Christmas decorating is almost complete. There are still a few things that we have yet to put up, but I am hoping to get those done this weekend. But, I wanted to show you guys what we have so far. 

The outside of our house was fun to decorate. We have never had  a place that we could put up lights outside so I was very excited about decorating this year. We wanted to do more, but when you don't have a ladder that can reach the very top of your house, it kind of makes things difficult. So we did what we could and are hoping that my Brother will be brave enough to get on the very top roof and hang the rest of our lights for us. 

I bought the wreaths at the thrift store for a $1 each and then went to Hobby Lobby and bought a bunch of Christmas floral pieces and decorated them myself. I like that they are pretty simple! And not only that, but I can change them next year if I decide to. And I LOVE our Happy Holidays fence sign. I bought this at a craft fair this past weekend. I love all the little details on it. It is so cute!

As for the inside decorations, a lot of them have either come from a thrift store or they have been in my family for years. I need more shelves and spaces to put things though. I am already running out. Or I apparently need less decorations. Nah! I need more shelving!

We don't have a stalking for the Hubby yet, so we only have three up, but there is a spot waiting for his. The little village was made by my Grandma on my Mom's side before she passed away. She made it for my Mom, but being on the road for her job makes it difficult for her to have things like this, so they usually come to me. And the ceramic lamp of Old Saint Nick looking down on a town was also from the same Grandma. She hand painted it and we have had that lamp since I was little. It is one of my favorite pieces to put out each year. 

And of course I have my Scentsy warmer that has the countdown to Christmas on it! It is so cute. And I am in love with the candy garland that I bought at a craft fair, but I can't figure out where to put it. It didn't look right on our tree, so I have to find a new  home for it. And then we have a few other things that have been in the family or that I have bought throughout the years.

 All I know is that I am no where near satisfied with our Christmas decoration collection. I am always looking for new things and new ways to bring the spirit of Christmas into our home. I am sure with each year our collection will grow. 

Do you have some favorite pieces that you put out each year? Have they been in your family for years? Or did you purchase them?



  1. I have this stuffed snowman I got at a gift exchange last year that I am completely obsessed with!! I have him in a place of honor on our mantle. I love your countdown warmer!! It's so festive!

  2. Looks great megan!! I went out on Dec. 26th last year and bought a ton of decorations that were crazy discounted - then this year, it was like a big ol' surprise to go to my Christmas stuff and see what I had bought last year and how I could make it work. I def. like our decorations much better this year than last year, but it is still a work in progress and I hope to get more things this year for next year!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
