Happy New Year! {Christmas Catch-Up}

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday season! The new year is bringing some new beginnings into my life, but I’ll get into that later. First, I want to wrap up the holiday season by showing you guys some of my Christmas decorations! (Better late than never, right? The holidays were totally crazy for us, so I had to take a little hiatus from the blogosphere.)

(Obviously, Santa didn’t bring me a new camera for Christmas…haha)

Let’s start at the front door:

xmas wreath

I made this wreath using a really cheap plain wreath, gold bow and snowflakes from Wal-Mart and some vintage wooden ornaments from the flea market.

All you need is a hot glue gun! 🙂


And we wrapped our poor, dying boxwood with lights to make it look better. (A gardener once told me it was basically impossible to kill a Boxwood…and then mine died.)

This little stand is in our foyer: (It’s where we hide our leash and doggy bags…. shh!)

One of these little nutcrackers was a family hand-me-down but the other 3 were Dollar Tree goodies.

I got a shoe box full of those HANDMADE quilted Christmas ornaments for like 2 bucks at Goodwill. Love them!


This is our living room/tv area. (Of course, football was on for most of the fall/winter.)

Our staircase inspired by Funky Junk Interiors:

Our little tree and our cutie patootie pup: (We later wrapped some old burlap around the bottom as a tree skirt.)

And, a few other little things we had around:

xmas pinecone dish

early times box

xmas candles

If you didn’t see my Junky Wreath Holder or Reindeer Mirror, you can check ’em out at those links!

Now, onto my new beginnings. Adding to the craziness of the holidays, I also accepted a job offer at a very cool software company in downtown Charleston. Over the last few weeks, I transitioned out of my old job and start my new job on Tuesday! It’s going to be a big change, going from non-profit to software and going from about 30 hours a week to a full time schedule. I’m hoping I will be able to pick my projects and blogging back up like I hoped, but if you don’t hear from me, it’s because I’m adjusting to a new schedule.

What’s new with you? I’d love to hear from you in the comments! 🙂
