It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Winter is almost here and Christmas is already right around the corner. It's hard to believe that we have been in Indiana just about 5 months now! We are so excited to celebrate Christmas here in our new place and with our church family. The day after Thanksgiving I dug out all my Christmas boxes. Everything made the move in tact except one vintage Santa mug fatality. 

Every year I like to try to make something Christmasy for our home. This year I made this sweet pillow for our living room. It was fun throwing it all together....
And it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself! There are a couple more things I will be making for myself then I will be making a few handmade gifts!

The house is slowly getting decorated for Christmas. It's a lot of work going through everything and putting it out...Then deciding what to use and what not to use this year. I wanted to keep it semi simple.... I put up our tree, a small kitchen tree and a couple mini trees throughout the house. 

I put out my Santa collection as well as all my Santa mugs. Wow, my collection sure has grown in the last 10 years! Last year I even tried minimizing my Christmas stuff and donated a box...I'm thinking I may have to do it again this year. I will surely keep all my vintage stuff, but will have to get rid of other things that just don't have any meaning to us. 
Yet it is still hard to decide exactly what to give up.

I am liking the feel of what I put together so far...It's cheerful and has a bit of a vintage kitschy feel...I like it! Will share more...The house has been dark due to bad weather, but I will try to get some pictures. Come on back ya hear!!!!

Home Sweet Home Tour~ Through The Seasons With Anna

Anna is a gal I follow on Instagram. She allowed me to take her pictures via Instagram to share here on my blog. I went through her pictures and decided to share her home through the seasons...There was too much pretty for me not to share...Her home is darling and her decorating is sweet. From  Spring to Summer, Fall and Winter, her home is warm, inviting and pleasantly decorated.

I love the idea of seasonal decorating. It gives you the chance to decorate 4 times a year, switching it out every few months. My kind of decorating since I get a little bored with the same things on my shelves for too long. Plus it's fun!!!

Every season there is something different to look at...It's quite charming don't you think? 

I do hope you enjoyed the pictures of her beautiful home. 
I also hope you have enjoyed the Home Sweet Home Tours this past many weeks. This will be it for now...I hope to be able to share more tours in the future. Thank you to all the ladies who allowed me to share their homes with you all. I wanted to give y'all some inspiration just as they give me.
 See y;all soon!
