holiday spirit!

This morning, instead of shopping with the rest of the world, I decided to do a little more holiday decorating :)
I love the idea of a little winter wonderland right here in our home.  I keep looking around and smiling :)
Would you like another peek?

First things first, I really felt like we needed a new little holiday garland to hang above the couch.
Yarn, doilies, crochet hook and....viola!

I hung a sweet paper chain in pinks and greens above the fireplace along with our stockings...

Here are some sweet little plush trees that I made last year with some vintage fabric left overs.  I also adore the little glitter reindeers.  I found them last year as well in the after Christmas sales. I've used them around the house this holiday season.

Our Advent Calendar... Last year I filled it for Adam so this year it's his turn to fill it for me :)

This is my most favorite decoration that I have seen in like forever.  I found this at the local antique mall and it's made completely out of vintage brooches.  AMAZING!!! I love love love it.

That's it for today!
Holiday cheer all around :)
Now it's time for me to wrap some presents!
and then dinner with the family again.
What a blessed blessed day already.
