The sun is peeking out of the clouds today in Wisconsin, so I pushed my dining room table out into the hallway and snapped a few pictures of my favorite wall all decked-out for Christmas before it went away. I've been meaning to blog about my wall for a few weeks, but it has been so gloomy around here lately. For those of you who are new around here, John built this wall for me a few years ago, and I have been having a good time decorating it ever since! This year's Christmas version is one of my favorites--each cubby is filled with so many good memories. Here's a look at a few of my favorites:
How cute is this little Santa ornament? It came in the box of homemade treasures from John's childhood. I love the sequins and googly-eyes.
The silver candle holder was a gift from John's sister. I love the round little ball candles. I think it looks perfect in that little cubbie. The bottle brush trees are from a little boutique near my mom and dad's house. I always find the best treasures there! The print is from Monica's ETSY shop. I love the clean design. And it really is the best time of the year, isn't it? The large "3" sign was a Christmas gift from John a couple of years ago. I love anything that reminds me of my kiddos.
December Daily from 2011. I do a December Daily every other year. I love looking back at my books, but they are a lot of work. Taking a year off in between helps me to forget how much work they are. You can see last year's book up in the top row on the left-hand side in the first picture. The jar of vintage ornaments was a treasure I found antiquing with my friend, Donie, down in Texas. I love looking at all of the fabulous, chippy ornaments. I wonder whose tree they once decorated?
