our Christmas decor

I love having this mantel now to decorate for different seasons! Here are our Christmas decorations this year:

Gold ornaments from Target.
(“Glory to the Newborn King” printable here)

Our Willow Tree nativity set + Lars Erik—a gnome that my grandpa carved a few years ago.
My collection of milk glass from Goodwill.
This bunting is pretty special to me—I sewed it a couple of weeks ago from Christmasy fabric that belonged to my late grandma, Shirley. The red herringbone and green chevron fabrics were inexpensive additions from Walmart.
I added gold glittery fabric paint to a plain stocking. Next year, I hope to buy or make stockings for all *four* of us!
Mini Lars Erik & his wife carved by my grandpa.

My mom and Don got us this beautiful, hand-painted ornament from San Diego in August.
Love on a rowboat (like Steve’s and my last first kiss ;)
And this year, Scotty joins the Star Trek crew.

A Hallmark ornament for Nolan from my mom last year.

Our friend Alex gave us this Superman onesie—cute!

So fun to have our first real-sized tree! We had a mini one for the first four years of marriage—see it in this post from last year :) It’s now on the mantel.

I love displaying our cards from family and friends on our card wreath.

The Advent calendar that I posted about last week.

A couple framed prints I have sitting out.  (“All is Calm” printable here)

Hope you enjoyed this peek at our decorations!

  6. This is beautiful!! I love how homey and handmade everything is.... Unfortunatey, i dropped the ball on decorating for Christmas this year the way I wanted to, so I'm kind of bummed about that! Love this so much!!

  7. It's a Wonderful Life is my favorite movie of all time (and not just because Jimmy Stewart is from Indiana!). Your decor is simply beautiful. I love the chevron and gold.
