Christmas is in the air….

12 Dec

I have some photos coming your way of our new home – decorated for Christmas. However, I am just working on some before and afters right now… so until then I thought I would post some Christmas inspiration to get us all in the mood ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been so busy the past two weeks with unpacking, cleaning, painting and getting our house together. I am loving every minute of it though! The house is really coming together, and I can’t wait to share it with you all.

Upstairs I am doing a white theme (surprising I know ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) – with silver and gold accent. And in the basement I doing a red tartan theme, a little more rustic.ย

Post – Christmas

29 Dec

Wow – I cannot even believe Christmas is over already!! I feel like I blinked an the Christmas holidays were over. We are so blessed and had such a great few days with family and friends. Adam & I held our first Christmas dinner this year – and it went off without a hitch thanks to our family that pitched in!! We held 13 people in our little house and although it was cozy – it was so nice to have everyone here to celebrate the season!

here is a little glimpse into our Christmas holiday ……

O Christmas Tree….

8 Dec
I have a confession…. I am a TERRIBLE Christmas tree decorator.
ย 
It’s awful, I am so embarrassed to say it, but it’s true. However, this year I have vowed to become better! I took a trip to places that had gorgeously decorated trees: The Bay, Sheridan Nursery, Van Belle’s etc…. After looking at all them I realized that you really need to fill the tree. Fill the holes with flowers, sparkly branches and leaves – and use lots of lights!!!
ย 
As you saw in my last post Adam & I went with our family to chop down a real tree this year! Although the tree seemed perfect at the farm – once we got it home it was a LITTLE big, and didn’t fit in the spot I had envisioned. So right off the bat, we were not off to a good start. But we made room behind the sectional for it, and now atleast it won’t be in the way when I have Christmas dinner at my house.
ย 
Here are some photos that I used for inspiration:

I got ornaments this year from all over the place. The Bay, Crate & Barrel, Homesense, Canadian Tire, my mom, as wedding gifts and of course ones that I have gotten over the last few years we have lived together. I really want to have meaningful and important things on my tree. My main ornaments have to do with birdies ๐Ÿ™‚ of course (birds, bird houses, nests etc)… but I also have skates, a lucky pickle and then just beautiful white, gold & silver pieces.

It’s still not great…. But I feel like I am making progress!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tis the Season!!

21 Dec

For some reason this year it just doesn’t seem like Christmas is only 3 days away!!! I think it is the fact that there is no snow…. HOWEVER, I am not complaining!! haha, I don’t mind not having to scrape off my car an have it warm up for 20 mins before I leave in the morning. I absolutely love Christmas for all the time you get to spend with family & friendsย โ™ฅ Just wish it could last a little longer. Anyways, here are some inspirational pictures to get you all in the mood for the holidays!!

Cheers & Happy Holidays!!

These ones below just makes me laugh ๐Ÿ™‚
