Christmas Decorating

Since I started working, I haven't had near the time I'd like to spend on my homemaking or baking goodies. The Santa cupcakes were easy to make and delicious.

We usually decorate the weekend following Thansgiving, but this year we waited a bit longer due to a lack of time. On the upside it enabled me to be more mindful and to enjoy the process more.

O' Christmas Tree.....

I made this wreath for our front door. I already had the ivy garland which I gathered into a wreath-like shape. I bought the ribbon from the dollar store for $1 and fashioned a big bow from it.


Atop the tv.....

The end table between the couch and chair.....I still *love* that towel!

Santa door hanger..... Zeus likes to ring the bells to let us know he needs to go out.

A dollar store find last year...

Christmas Cardinal pillow...

Thanks for visiting!

Thinking of you and wishing you a blessed week!

Dear Tracy,
Your home looks so wonderful and festive. I've noticed many people in our neighborhood (including us) just put our decorations out this past weekend.
The cupcakes are so cute!

I have all of the time in the world, but still can't get it into gear...Lol!

I think we have the same cardinal...(on the table)

I love cardinals...they are the state bird for both Ohio and Kentucky!

Hope you have a warm and toasty day!♥
