the white stand on the left used to hold chips/snacks at the store - i spray painted it white and will use it to display christmas cards we receive

the card in the middle was made by my sweet cousin

Beth- you're so creative! I would've never thought of any of those ideas! I even have that exact santa mug you put in the bathroom, never crossed my mind to stick it there haha! Will you come do my house now? :) Miss ya!

Thanks shug! That's how I survive - trying to make a new use for an old thing - sometimes all it takes is sticking it in a different place with some different friends! Also, just look for anything in the color scheme you choose to pair with whatever "official" Christmas decorations you have to make decorations go further! I'm sure it will turn out GORGEOUS! Miss you too! :)

Seriously, your Christmas decor makes uncrafty me look like I don't even know what Pinterest freaking is!!! Your Christmas home is so beautiful! I especially adore the vase filled with ornaments and the ornament last name painting on the shelf :)

Thanks! I LOVE decorating with vintage/reused stuff! That thing on the shelf with the last name was actually ordered somewhere online ... it's a canvas. I just googled it, so I will update this post with info on where to find one! :)
