A Little (lot)of Christmas Decor!

I thought I'd share a little of my Christmas decor with you. I'm a little obsessive and LoVe Christmas!!! I don't like to put it up and I don't like to take it down, but I love every second of the finished product!!!
I've been decorating for two weeks, and seem to keep finding things to add here, and there...enough already!!!!

Welcome and come on in!!!

Here's the tree! It's a mix of homemade and special ornaments that my Grandma gave us over the years. She gave us all, one each, every year for many, many years.

These ornaments are my favorite and the first things to go on the tree every year!
My buffet in the kitchen with my Starbucks tree next to it.
My dad got me most of the rolling pins and the crocks at a garage sale.
I got the icicle shelf liner at Grandiflora this year...I think it's my favorite thing! I got the sparkly trees and the old bingo cards there too. I collect cookie cutters and Thermos's, enamelware lids and kitchen scales too! I would like to get lights in here to make it a little brighter.
Another favorite Starbucks tree!!! So fun to decorate every year!
I took some old suitcases and spray painted them off-white and love how they turned out. The top one even says "holiday" on it! I received the santa for Christmas when I was four years him!!

 A few of the things I've made recently. The red-work was really fun to do and I always love working with wool, especially these colors!
This penny rug was this year's project...the snow pail from years past.
A simple, spray painted, wooden bowl filled with ornaments.
A cute little chalkboard I picked up this year, sitting on a different buffet, next to the s'more trees.You can also see a bit of a winter quilt in the background.

The trees on the stairwell with lots of bears underneath. I made the ornaments years ago and really need to do something different, but I just keep putting it off!! Santa's undergarments hanging on an old door!
A little tree in the entry, with a wall hanging I had made for my mom.

I like to put these little trees in my sewing room...they add a little sparkle! I got the Merry Christmas tree skirt at the museum this year. The skirt on the bigger tree is literally a little girls skirt from the GAP. I got it at a garage sale and cut it up the middle. It may have to be sewn back together if a granddaughter ever comes along!!!

While this is just a snippet of my Christmas decor, I hope you enjoyed it!!

And of course the real meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Savior.



  1. Oh Holly, what a treat! This is what I've been waiting for! I love all of the details. It looks like a lot of work, but the end result is just beautiful and festive. Such joy!

  2. Your home looks beautiful all decked out for the holidays! Love the chalkboard!

  3. Holly, I want to come visit you and just sit there and stare at your Christmas decorations! I love every bit of it.
    When i was little we always had the silver tree. I hated that thing. Now i want one. Would you believe that my husband let one go extremely cheap last year at an auction. I can't remember exactly how cheap, but something like 6.00 or 12.00. I was NOT pleased! That tree shirt is perfect for the tree. I will have to get ahold of some of that shelf liner. or make something like it. That is too cute! I also like your ornaments in the snow!
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh my goodness, all of your Christmas decorations are so very pretty! I just love it all!
    I actually like the decorating part, it's the putting away part I'm not overly fond of...

  5. I. am. coming. over.

    We need a home tour next week. A Starbucks to go and we'll drive around on a mini home tour? Please?

    Adorable! Everything!

  6. Everything looks so absolutely gorgeous Holly!! I just want to move in.

  7. How pretty everything looks. I have 4 trees this year. Hubs said he did not want one in his office. Srooge. I have a tinsel tree in this bedroom where I blog and the grand sleep. They do put a smile on your face. Finished my Christmas shopping today, our family gathering her next Sat. so I had to be done. Have a great Sunday. Love your redwork quilt!!!

  8. Hi, I just found your blog and I really like it. Your home is very beautiful and wonderfully decorated.
    Have a great weekend.
