Wow! I can't believe how fast this month has gone. Here we are a week before Christmas and I've still got quite a bit to do! Trying hard to remember the true meaning of the season: Jesus! God in the flesh, come to live among us!
I snapped a few pictures of our favorite decorations and thought I'd share them with you all for this week's party. One thing I'm excited about is my first little PINK putz house (see above)! I ordered it from Etsy last week. Isn't it cute? I've got a little obsession with them. Remember my banner from last year?
The same Etsy seller had another putz house up---a burlap one. Very awesome. In all my thrifting, I've never found a vintage putz house anywhere. That's my goal for this year---to come across one by serendipity alone!
This little elf became part of my collection last year. He reminds me of my grandma Betty as she had these hanging on her flower pots and gave me one before she passed away. I'll have to dig it out and add it to my collection!
Every year, my husband buys me a poinsettia. Every year, I kill it by Valentine's Day. Still, he's very thoughtful to remember this sweet tradition!
We had mistletoe our first year married and I reused it several times before it finally started falling apart. I saved it in one of the Christmas boxes for a keepsake, but hadn't been able to find any to replace it. Now, 15 years later, I've found some! Yay!
The kids are very excited to have a fireplace this year to hang the stockings over! I've made each of these stockings as we've had a new baby. I didn't get to make one this year, though. Maybe next year! Lynzie's nutcracker collection is displayed above them. She gets a new one every year. I'm going to have to start collecting my own---when she grows up and takes them all to her new home, my mantel will be bare!
I'm excited to see what you've got to share! Have a wonderful Christmas week!
