decorated for christmas. and giveaway winner!

This is one of my favorite times of the year not only because of Christmas, but because it also means I get to change up the decor in our house a bit. We don’t have a lot of space to really decorate a lot, but I try and use the space the best I can :) Since we’ve been married, I haven’t really spent too much money on Christmas decorations but each year I’ve been trying to add a little here and there. I’ve found the best places to look for inexpensive decor are Hobby Lobby, Joann Fabrics, and other little thrift or antique stores. Anywho, I took these photos after we decorated for Christmas a couple days after Thanksgiving….just a few small details around our house…

…love playing classic Christmas records on the record player!

…nothing too fancy :) Anywho, Jay and I just got back into town from being in Tennessee this weekend. (I have some photos I can’t wait to share!) For now, I have some last minute things to do and also some tax things to start preparing for the end of the year. Fun, fun! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! :)

p.s. the winner of the christmas giveaway is katelyn r. i will be emailing you soon with details!



Lovely decorations. Happy Monday!

I love the decor on the piano, so pretty!! :) Can’t wait to see your photos from Tennessee!

It looks lovely, love all the simplicity! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas :)

Love your simple decorations. I went small this year myself, only stockings and a tree w/lights and garland and I really like it. I haven’t bought new decorations in a couple years, so its nice to reuse what I have, but even just going more simple w/it too.
