Christmas Décor 2011

Simple

That was the goal for this year’s Christmas décor.  I have already shown you my simple mantel.  Today I thought I would share the rest of the decorations.

013

  The girls did all the tree decorating excepted the top part, they did such a great job.

I am excited to be finished shopping and have everything wrapped, ahhhhh!

018

The girls made gingerbread houses this week, Faith did the one on the right and Grace the one on the left.

If you look close you will see that the gingerbread has been put back together with hot glue.  When we opened the boxes they were both in crumbles.

And no Christmas is complete without His presence. 

The birth of Christ our Savior, that is really worth a celebration!

A few spray painted and glittered thrift store finds brighten the bookcases.

Hanging this Merry Christmas sign from the lamp shade is one of my favorite ideas this year.

The kitchen is normally where I go all out for Christmas, not this year.

There is no tree, no jars full of candy, no fun garland, no candy wreaths but yet I still love how it turned out.

Maybe simple really is better.

039

I wish this said Merry Christmas instead of Happy Holidays but it was a dollar on clearance and the colors are perfect.

Speaking of perfect colors, I found this tablecloth after Christmas last year at Kmart and I head over heels with it.

Perfect colors, perfect vintage vibe, LOVE IT.

044

And last a kitchen towels made from scraps of fabric and a few buttons.

That is our décor this year- much more simple than many and more extravagant than most in the world.

We are blessed and thankful this Christmas season.

Thankful for all we have, but mostly thankful for the one thing that can never be taken from us

 

ULTIMATE PEACE

found in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

 

He is the reason for this season.
