Christmas Time is Here

I hope you all are having a wonderful December so far!  I want to share with you all my home during Christmas time.  I think my decor is my favorite during the holidays :) 

We don't really have a mantle.  We have this weird wall that separates our family room from our living room.  It doesn't go all the way to the ceiling and has little stair steps at the end. An very annoying "shelf" to decorate.  This year, my husband thought of adding these three trees to the top of it to add some depth.  I love when he gets good creative ideas!

Added some oversized ornaments and greenery to my lampshades.

 These last three pictures are all on top of our piano.

 Shots throughout the house

And lastly, our tree.  LOVE

I made some fun little waterless snow globes that were inspired by Anthropologie and will be doing a post on those this week!  I hope you all are well!

Happy December 1st! And a Giveaway!

It's December 1st and that makes me happy.  One of the reasons being, I will be 12 weeks in a few hoping and praying that the nausea will go away and I will finally get some energy back!  I miss crafting, I really really do! I also miss sharing all of my fun projects with all of you.  This also means that the weather is finally and hopefully going to cool down and stay cool here.  Where I live it has been known to be 85 degrees on Christmas!  Not hoping for that this year. And lastly, but most definitely not least, celebrating my Saviors birth.  I love our Christmas Eve service at church. It is always such a great reminder to me of WHY we celebrate. What is your favorite part about December?

With the arrival of December, I have decided to do a little giveaway.  Nothing fancy, just something to add a little festivity to your homes :)  If you have ever visited my shop, you will know that I love working with burlap! Well I made this banner that is perfect for winter and Christmas! One you of you ladies will have it to hang on your mantle this holiday season.  

The giveaway will only be open until Wednesday, December 7, so that I can have it out to you a little bit before Christmas.  There are 3 ways to enter:

1- follow my blog and leave a comment saying that you did.
2. - Share this giveaway on your blog, fb or twitter and leave a comment saying that you did.
