Happy December 1st! It's officially Christmas season. Today I thought I would showcase my holiday decor. I wasn't feeling super Halloween or Thanksgiving-y this year so on November 9th I took down all my fall decor and started decorating for Christmas. Yes, maybe it was too early but Christmas makes me happy so I thought I would get a head start. My house is pretty big so I only decorate the living room and kitchen. I am linking old posts to show how far my photography has come :)
Sneak peak: The photo below contains a sneak peak of a future post... Can you guess what it is? Comment below!
I bought almost all of my home decor from Michaels last year although a few pieces are from Target and different years. I decided to go with the cabin theme as I thought it was timeless and would fit throughout the years. I think last year there was a pink/sparkly theme and a bright and colorful theme - plus I thought those others were more "fads" and it would be harder find more pieces later as I plan to continue to collect.
I'm pretty much a freak for anything with lights. I have string lights in my bedroom, kitchen and living room. I love lights because they give me energy and make me happy. Maybe I was a bug in my last life, attracted to the light! Haha Anyways I think the lights look great wrapped around the fireplace. I finally bought some rechargeable batteries - you can see the little tree lights up too!
I bought some cute props and I laid them on the top of the fireplace. I use them a lot for photos I end up taking them down and putting them back up a lot. The fireplace doesn't work - my dad and I both tried so I need to call my landlord and have them fix it. I just hate having people in my house and I have a weird work schedule so it's hard for me to be home. I can't leave for lunch like other people.
I loved the way it turned out and I cannot wait to continue to grow my home decor to a point where one day I will have my whole house decked out - excessive and expensive yes but it makes me so happy and I cannot wait to make memories that my kids will cherish forever aka mom decked the whole house like a crazy person (no I'm not pregnant just one day).
