I am so excited for the holidays this year. I did very minimal decorations the last few years, but have decided to do it up right this year. It’s been a few years since I have taken out my tree, but this is going to be the year I start that up again. I have always loved Christmas. It is one of my favorite, if not my favorite holiday. The last few years have been a little bit of a downer but I’m feeling happy this year. Almost back to my normal self I think I am still working through my decorations but decided to start with my bonus room. I purchased the pillows from Target and I have a table top tree (not pictured) in front of one of the windows. I use this room as a sitting area/workout space/office space, so the little changes has given it a nice cozy holiday feeling. I have a pink theme in this room and decided to stick with that instead of changing it up entirely.
I hope that you all are ready for a great holiday season.
Merry Christmas to everyone who has taken time out of their schedules to read this blog. I appreciate it very much that you have spent a moment of your time reading my scattered thoughts. I look forward to sharing more with you next year. The photo above are just a few of the favorites on my tree. The pine cone is over 30 years old. I know that people now purchase these in stores, but the ones on my tree actually belonged to my grandmother. My mom and her siblings actually went outside and scrounged these up and painted them as part of their decorations. Yes…this was back when kids still strung popcorn and handmade ornaments. I also still have a handmade one (not pictured). Sometimes, the simplest thing can make the holiday that much more special.
Talk to you all soon.
I mentioned a few blogs ago that I went to a tea house for the first time. Well my best friend was having a tea party for her mom’s 60th birthday party, and initially she was going to have it at an actual tea house, but decided to throw it herself. So, here I am sharing a few pictures from the party where we all dressed and wore beautiful hats. This is just some photos of the decorations which turned out to be so beautiful. It was a spectacular event. Enjoy!
Talk to you all soon.
