Thanksgiving is behind us and there's nothing (I mean nothing) standing in the way of Christmas now! Feel free to glitter everything in sight. All in the name of Christmas cheer, of course.
Had you asked me last month if I collected a particular Christmas item, I would have said no. That is until I unpacked my Christmas tubs and uncovered the (roughly) seven billion Christmas trees I've amassed through the years.
Turns out I collect Christmas trees.
Glittered trees. Mercury glass trees. Sparkly trees. I must really like Christmas trees, or something.
This silver tray turned chalkboard has got to be the most versatile piece I have in my home. You may have also seen it used here as a Thanksgiving centerpiece base, a platter for caramel apple cake pops and as a staging prop for a recent necklace I made from antique hankies. I got it from my mom, who got it from a store at Canton Trade Days called Girls Gone Junkin.
In case you were itchin' to know.
I got this old window from my mother-in-law and it tends to float around my house a bit. It's been on a mantel before (remember?), it's been in my guest room and it's spent some time in my family room. But, it's never shouted JOY like it is this week! I used my Silhouette SD to cut the letters out from fun, festive, red vinyl.
And there, dear friends, is my first Christmas mantel of the season! And, you can even see my Christmas tree in the reflection.
It's the most wonderful time of the year!
(someone should totally write a song about that sentiment)
