..but the rest is coming along! Here's a mini-tour of what we accomplished this weekend.
Warning: Picture-heavy post!
(And, as always, all images are property of D.I.T.H. Thanks and Merry Christmas!)
Now that the DD's have strong decorating opinions, they overruled my suggestion to go a bit rustic with the tree this year, but they conceded to a vintage vibe by limiting the ornaments to green and red balls and handmade, sentimental ornaments from their *sniff* preschool days.
|I love cinnamon dough ornaments! They still smell good after all these years!|
|Cute preschool footprint!|
I swiped a chalkboard from the porch and framed it.
Pine in shabby-chic pots:
Books in the colors of the season with a touch of greenery:
Do you see our theme? It's red-gold-evergreen-rustic-vintage-y. Sort of.
The "theme" came from my hands-down favorite spot, the mantel.
My antique chalkboard makes a reappearance with my
only first Christmas craft, a burlap banner stamped with the names of God.
I saw the idea from the lovely and talented Lemonade Makin Mama. She sells them in her etsy shop, but since they were always sold out before I even knew they were there, I decided to make my own.
Biggest stamps available from Hobby Lobby + black ink pad + burlap/gold ribbon that was an early Christmas present from a friend. I heart it.
And I like y'all, too, so stay tuned for more holiday cheer from the 'House.
