Christmas Inspiration List

Hello friends! First I had wedding on the brain...now I have wedding AND Christmas! Yikes! I don't know why but I am so excited to decorate for Christmas this year! I have always loved Christmas but this year I seem more excited! I have already saved a few projects that I will hopefully complete this holiday season! Here they are!

I'm feeling a lovely pinecone garland, like the one found here. I already have all the pinecones too! Thanks Holly!
The classic pottery barn sweater pillow. I already bought the sweater last year but never got around to sewing it. This year I will for sure!
 And while I'm at it, some cozy sweater candleholders would be cute too. Found here
For the mantle, I am thinking NATURE as my theme. Maybe some birch, candles, pine garland and WHITE! (I think I am going to attempt to sew new white stockings!) Something like this....
I have also changed the colour of my tree from burgandy and gold.... to brown, gold and white. It is going to look so good!!! The tree will probably be up a little before December 1st this year...I don't think I can wait that long!!!


  1. My tree will be put up the Sunday after Thanksgiving (so around the same time as you). If I remember correctly, I bought silver and purple ornaments for this year (on sale after Xmas last year of course!). Can't wait to see your tree! It sounds like it will be gorgeous!

  2. I love the pinecone garland! I'll have to see if I can come up with some pinecones and borrow the idea =)
