Clearly it is way past Christmas, but since I now have a computer that is in working order, I figured I could post a few pictures of what our home looked like this year. If nothing else, this gives me a good record of what I did each year. 🙂
Last year this is what the house looked like. I changed up quite a bit this year but didn’t have to buy much since I had raided Target the year before.
And this year…
I wanted to have mercury glass and candles only for the mantle so this is the outcome.
For whatever reason, this is one of my favorite decorations. It looks like it would be a magical house to live in 🙂 Ryan got me this pillow from Pottery Barn for my birthday that I was dying to have last year but they had sold out-I was excited to say the least. I purchased the tray from Target last year and this year they had these jewelry boxes. Instead of jewelry, I wanted to use it to hold matches or other little things in the living room-I don’t have kids 🙂 Looking at the dining and living areas from the kitchen.
I was able to get some little trees from Trader Joes this year that I just loved. I love these West Elm wooden cut out trees. They’re the perfect little touch of holiday decor that don’t scream CHRISTMAS.
A few kitchen details…
This rosemary tree smelled so good and a plus- when you’re cooking you can just cut a sprig and throw it in the pot. I have a card hanger that we use to display all the Christmas cards we receive, and this year I put it in this cabinet nook in our kitchen.
