My Christmas Decor

Hello loves! It's been a while....
I've missed blogging so much! Real life has been my priority lately. You know a few little things like husband, kids, pets, house, etc. 
Speaking of real life. I have been enjoying it so much more since my surgery. I feel awesome! I simply can't thank everyone enough for praying and sending thoughts my way. Seriously, thank you!! It's been such a long hard road. Oh, my goodness so l-o-n-g. But I am SO good. God is SO good!

On that note, let's talk about CHRISTmas! 

My cousin and I made these adorb stockings.
 At first I wasn't sure we were capable, (okay I was pretty sure) but we finished them like sewing rock stars! I embellished them with buttons from my collection. The letter ornaments I found at Target.

My mother in law made this beautiful mesh wreath for me. 
Love it! Matches my tree perfectly.

We cut some paper snowflakes and simply hung them in the corner. 
Always fun to make these!

Thriftstore treasures I found in the early fall.
 Only $1 each!

And the tree! 
Yes, it's been up since mid November. I have no shame in pre-holiday decorating. 
Every ornament and trinket was either on uber clearance, thrifted, or homemade.

My mantle. 
The stars were thrifted and the branches were a last minute idea that came to me after pruning our large tree. I LOVE how simple and cute it turned out.

Blessings, Nicole
