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!!!!

  1. Your home is lovely! I'm happy things made the trip safely. And, I feel the pain of sorting through Christmas stuff. I told my guys to "bring up all the Christmas totes" and they did. Even the ones that are never used because I don't know what to do with them. It's been good, I've been going through the boxes and donating a ton of things!

    Also, I need to remind myself through the year to NOT buy stuff I come across because it's cute/inexpensive. I have enough!!
