Christmas Details

This year we are celebrating our second Christmas together {as a married couple}  We are looking forward to traveling to see family and friends in a few short days.  I think the Christmas decorations/lights make our house a little more cozy, guess I'll be one of those people holding out to take down all the decorations! 

Here's a little Christmas details tour:
(1) I mixed our Christmas pillows with the existing ones and Brian awesomely rearranged our living room to make preparation for the tree {and b/c i love rearranging} (2) Thanks Mrs. Wright for capturing a lovely 3rd grade Hannah in a yarn spun ornament - {this would've been a great pinterest project back in 1993} (3)Thankful that Jesus was born to be our Savior.(4) {Conversation} Hannah: Jess, I love this ornament on your tree! Jess: It's yours, you can have it! {thanks bestie!} (5) Cute foxes are my fav these days (6) Our scripture chalkboard with a great Christmas reminder that Jesus was born to be our Savior!
 

(7)Lovely Christmas glow (8) Cute little tree in our bedroom, I love it's understated charm.  Though I discovered that the pretty silver pot was conveniently sold separately...a little Pottery Barn over-priced surprise from last year's Christmas decor shopping spree(9) Chef Alli - with whisk and bowl in hand {Cody, thanks for passing the alligator ornament to the Louisiana girl} (10) We are Saints fans {bought this for Brian while at home for Thanksgiving} (11)Annual Hallmark ornament from sweet Maw-maw Crain! And today is Dec 18. (12) A sweet handmade ornament from the talented Jess Handy!

Chalkboard:
This is so easy I'm pretty sure this doesn't qualify as arts and crafts project.  Cute chalkboards are everywhere in stores and in mags and on the beloved pinterest.  I couldn't exactly find what I was looking for so I decided to buy a simple chalkboard at Hobby Lobby (about $8).  I painted the unfinished frame with pale blue craft paint.  Tah-dah - the perfect board for menus, fun messages, and scripture!

  1. I've been trying to change up my chalkboard saying every few days during the holiday and I just completely copied the one you have in this blog post. Having a big family get together tomorrow and I love how pretty this looks on my kitchen wall. Thanks so much for sharing the idea!
