November 19th | older posts



little bits of christmas are starting to pop up around the house.

it’s a good motivation for cleaning.

this year, we’re sticking with silver and aqua with punches of color.

and there might be christmas music playing, too.

    I love it!!!! The silver theme has always been a favorite of mine and I wish I had a house to decorate! You should try mercury glass… I think you would love it. But come to think of it your chandelier sort of looks like it.

    i love the hooks on the ornaments hanging from the light fixture. are they special hooks or did they come with the bulbs?

  9. Rhea says:

    Love the ornaments. Where did you get them? Don’t say Target because I’m from Canada and I absolutely love Target. I also wanted to say how much I love your blog and how honest you are about your life.

  10. lisa says:

    I started listening to Chrismtas music Monday! l so love this time of year, and it goes too fast. I decided that waiting until the day after Thanksgiving as I normally do, it’s just silly if I’m in the mood. This year, I”m in the mood to start now. :) Enjoy. Love the pretty decor!

  12. Kate says:

    This post just made me incredibly happy. Thank you.

  13. love it all!!! that wreath is calling my name…Target? can’t wait to see the rest of your decoratiions! i must live vicariously through you right now, since the majority of my Christmas decorations have to stay in their boxes until next week. i say majority, because, well…a few things might have snuck out already, much to my hubby’s dismay! 😉 though for the record it was HE who was listening to Josh Groban’s Christmas album last night!

    Amy Grant’s Christmas CD is one of my favorites!

  15. Tiffany says:

    Oh yes. This just makes my heart sing. I love it. This year my family is doing a very DIY Christmas. Since budgets are tight..I thought it would be a lot of fun to incorporate new traditions and creativity. Love the colors. Love the decorating. Now it is time to play some Christmas music.

I have been listening to Christmas music though. How I Love the colors you are using. I am using whites and silver this year. The aqua is just beautiful

    These colors are delicious! Beautiful decorations. Aqua is my favorite color, especially in that “dusty” shade.

  26. Dan says:

    “We’re” sticking with aqua and silver? So Steve has a strong opinion on the colors of the Christmas decorations? Go Steve!

  27. Meg says:

    I absolutely love it! The wreath is awesome and the colors are just my style. Thanks for sharing :)

    I just love how you use ordinary items, like a charger or a basket and find a unique and beautiful way to make them look so fancy and decorative. that is my goals this season…to use things I have and find a way to fancy them up and look festive. Last year I used a cake plate and decorated it with candles. I love it!

    This year I too feel strong about brightening it up a but. last year we did gold and red, this year I’d like to do silver and purple!

  29. Laura says:

    OHHHHHHHH, I am sooooo exciting to do something unique for my classroom decoration. I usually do art monthly for elementary klds (1st-4th grade) It gives me lots of potential to look forward.

    Lisa, Love the silver and aqua ornaments…soooo pretty! I almost put Christmas music on today since I was hanging the wreaths on the windows and doing a little Christmas decorating. Beautiful photography!

  33. Edyta says:

    I love the picture with glass ornaments hanging from a chandelier. It takes me back to some wonderful childhood moments because that’s how my grandma used to decorate each Christmas.

  34. Andrea Bridger says:

    I love your white christmas wreath. Where did you find it? Your blog is wonderful. I can’t wait to order a bracelet.
