It's begining to look a lot like Christmas!
I grew up with colored lights on my tree. My hubby grew up with white. Each Christmas we debate over which is best. In past years we have used white lights with red mixed in but this year we went all white for the first time ever. I can't lie, I am really loving the white lights (just don't tell my husband).
It seems we are breaking tradition (starting new!) all over the place this year. I found these Mr. & Mrs. burlap stockings on Etsy. I pinned a tulle flower brooch on mine for a little added softness. You can find them at TheGoodnessCentric.
In our house one of the most treasured Christmas decorations is our Nativity. The figures were a "First Married Christmas" gift from my parents. My dad made the amazing creche. Every time I look at it I am in awe.
These twine wrapped cone trees (twine cones!) were Pinterest inspired. I picked up the cardboard cones for next to nothing on Black Friday. I wrapped each cone with twine hot gluing as I went. When I was finished they still needed a little something but I still wanted to keep them simple so I randomly dabbed Mod Podge and sprinkled a little clear glitter all over. Its perfect, they just give a little sparkle when the light hits!
Thank you to anyone who reads my very first blog post! :)
