Hi.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I blog about my home, life, and travels. Hope you enjoy your stay!

Our Merry Little Christmas

Our Merry Little Christmas

Christmas

When it comes to decorating our little apartment for the holidays, most of our conversations go something like this...

Me: "Hey babe! Let's buy [something fabulous and festive]!"

Tim: "I love you. But we can't buy a whole home's worth of Christmas decorations in one year!"

Now I know my husband is right, but that doesn't mean I can't start my holiday collection nevertheless. When I was in high school, I found a large box full of vintage pink Christmas ornaments at a dinky thrift shop in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I held onto them for years and, this December, finally put them on a tree of our own. We've only bought a few "special" ornaments so far, but I know we will gather more in the future!

I found these quirky and colorful wooden trees on Etsy and couldn't resist the mini splurge.

We bought the boxwood wreath at Trader Joe's and I found the gold lantern at a Goodwill.
