Holiday Decorating

This week I am decorating for Christmas, I know I already started but I am on a mission now! The 60 degree days are over and now they are calling for snow this week.

YEAH!

I picked up some cute little things last week that I am excited to show you and I hopefully will be working on some handmade items as well!

Below are a couple little things that I picked up this morning at Meijer.

Shhhh....

I was supposed to be grocery shopping (which I dread) but they had all these wonderful Christmas decorations!!


I picked up the two twig trees, all wrapped up in beautiful burlap, and those adorable red skates!


I think the trees would be easy to make as well, but I opted to buy!
If you make any, I would LOVE to see!!




I couldn't resist the ice skates, they were perfect and add a pop of red to the window!



And of course I had to play around with Picnik and the textures!


The kids, my mother-in-law and I picked up a TON of pine cones last week and I have been busy putting together some things with them!

And,

don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the little giveaway I mentioned, just a little something to say thank you!!


I will be back later this week with it!


Have a wonderful Monday!

I love those trees and those skates. I will not be making any though. I purged my junk closet yesterday. Blogging takes up so much room in your house. I may have to purge some more! :)

Love the skates, too cute, and Sutter Home sign, great! The trees are something I would probably buy as I don't think I would have the patience for something like that. How did the show end up going? I hope well and I hope your Mom is getting along well. Off to get the girls to school and then get my butt kicked at the gym! Have a great day!

So cute! You have such a great eye. I am wanting to find some cute cheap little Charlie Brown Christmas trees - I think they have so much character! Hope the start to your week is wonderful!

I love all your new things. I think the skates and the little trees have a bit of an Alpine village feel.

I just stumbled across your blog this morning..You are one good crafty chic.

I found the re-do on your bedroom and it looks great, but, the funny part is I have a nuetral bedroom now and was walking around in my bedroom yesterday thinking I needed to change it to my dining room colour which is the same colour as your old bedroom... I am going to change it up in reverse......Any how I look forward to more posts from you.

How cute, Michelle! You find the best little trees. Perfect beside your sink. I love the pop of color the skates add, as well. Sure wish we had a Meijer's. I don't think I ever ended up with food by the time I made it to the check out aisle :)We lived in the Chicagoland area (St. Charles-Elgin) for years. Miss it (and friends) but we love the CO sunshine. Great Christmas finds!

Can I come over? So cozy.

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

Don't like grocery shopping either..., but do like the food -haha! Lovely trees!!! Just read your update. Good to hear that everything went well for your mom!

Hi Michelle! Those skates look absolutely perfect right there in the window! You are so creative and it really makes me think about how I can add more whimsy to my Holiday decor! :-)
Can't wait to see more...I'm hitting the decorating hard this week too. Kindred spirits!

Those trees are great! Can't wait to see what you are doing with your pinecones. I will be collecting some thanksgiving weekend. (Since I don't live by pine trees!!!)

Jenni said...

Those little trees are adorable, and I love how you hung those skates above your sink! And I know I already said this, but that sweet sign behind your sink is amazing! I just love it combined with the white in your kitchen in the picture! :)

Thank you also for your kind words about the clothespins! I so much appreciate it! :) And I hope you have a wonderful day!

Blessings,
Jenni
