Gifts of Christmas past

I’m in the Christmas mood this evening. We were supposed to go get our tree from my parent’s house this evening but decided to wait until tomorrow.The other day I tried making these fabulous ornaments. Let’s just say I am not Martha!!! I’ll post pictures of my little disaster soon, I’m just looking for a way to do them right so that I can post that as well.

I searched around looking for some fabulous Christmas ideas with little luck, when I decided I should go and look on the blogs that I love for their past Christmas ideas. Since I am fairly new to the blog-a-sphere, many of these ideas are brand new for me! Like opening gifts Christmas morning!

I hope you enjoy these gifts of Christmas past!


Melissa @ 320 Sycamore has a fabulous blog that I get many great ideas from. I loved these as soon as I saw them. Melissa got these little bells @ The Dollar Tree! Love a thrifty gal! What a cute way to add a little Christmas spirit.

Look what else Melissa did with these adorable little bells!


Chris @ Just a Girl  makes all holidays fabulous! Christmas is no exception!

Adorable Advent jar! And space saving too!

I love that Chris sees paper and frames and creates amazing holiday decor!

I love her living room at Christmas! I could spend hours

And of course you can’t say Christmas Garland without thinking Nester! The Queen of beautiful seasonal decor, her style is classical yet whimsical.

Just a little sample of her famous garland!

Cute decorations atop the armoire!

Fabulous Feathered Fir

(well it is some type of tree anyway)

Even her bathroom gets a touch of Holiday love.


Layla & Kevin @ The Lettered Cottage have restored an amazing home. If you have been living under a rock and do not know about them yet you MUST go check them out! Everything I have seen them do I love & the two of them crack me up. Here is a taste of their Christmas decor. Nothing compared to their home.

Ragamuffin Garland for Baby Aiden

One of the sweetest ladies I know and have the privilege to work with just had a bouncing baby boy named Aiden. I can’t even begin to tell you how lucky the little prince is!

She decorated his nursery in khaki and white. Very simple, very handsome.

I couldn’t resist making him and his parents this darling ragamuffin garland.



The close ups are SO much better!



See that monkey fabric! I LOVE it! I used if for a garland that I made for by gorgeous niece Reese. Her nursery is pink and brown & I wish I had taken pictures of it before I gave it to her. Maybe I can sneak some in the next time I visit.

Bathroom Beauties

Just a little bathroom inspiration.

I love the natural light & refreshing feeling of each of these bathrooms. But most importantly I love how deep these tubs are. Our apartment has a very shallow bathtub. One of my first priorities when we find the home of our dreams is to take a nice long bubble bath because our dream home will have a nice deep bathtub!countrylivings1
