Home for the Holidays

I'm not quite done with my Holiday decorating but I'm sure I'll be tweaking things until Christmas Eve so I might as well show what I have now right?




Welcome to my home, come on in.





Dollar store wreath

A lovely faux mantel, with all my favorite things. Sticks, twine, berries and shells. Oh and it didn't cost a million bucks! Love it.




Of course, the icing on the cupcake, the tree. In all it's gold glory. Dollar store ornaments and burlap, you can't beat it. Still missing the topper but one is s-l-o-w-l-y being made.



Watch out for Christopher, he's keeping an eye on you.




And, lastly of course my recent addition, a Santa topiary. Another dollar store creation. I'm addicted I tell you!




Anyway, Thank you for stopping by, so happy to have you! Merry Christmas and come back soon!
