I am linking up again with Jessica at The Newly, and Sara and My Journey of Doing, for some more holiday cheer this Tuesday morning! This week, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite pieces of Christmas decor.
I picked this up a few years ago at Target, and am just in love with it. The quality is fantastic, and it is perfect for sticking a little treat in every door. Jackson appreciates all of the lights and twinkle of Christmas this year, but he doesn’t get it, if you know what I mean. He is all about the caramel filled hershey kiss in the calendar every morning though, and while I hate sharing my candy with just about everyone, nothing makes my mama heart happier than seeing him take his half of my chocolate every day.
I think these are all sold out now (womp womp) but Target killed it with their dollar section this year. I picked up these glitter trees for $3 a piece, and am in love with them! As we are in a temporary residence with roommates known as the in-laws, my decorating has been kept fairly minimal this year, so I just made do and placed these on our little TV stand display upstairs.
Another goodie I picked up this year that is sold out, these glitter reindeer stocking holders are my absolute favorite. I have always just done little hooks for our stockings, but decided that since we are going to have an awesome fireplace in our new house, it was time to invest in some nice sturdy stocking holders. Note there are four holders on the mantel, but only three stockings. I can’t wait to see the fourth stocking added in for next Christmas, in our new house, with our newest little addition 🙂
I really struggled over the past few years finding the right tree topper. Did I want a star, an angel, one that lit up, a big one, a small one? My parents had an angel on their tree when I was growing up, and I always liked the symbolism of it versus other tree toppers, so I did decide on an angel. I found this one last year at a craft store, and love it. It is big, but not too obnoxious, and I love the colors, the feather wings, and how it pulls the tree together.
This year, I got Jackson a mini tree for his bedroom. To be honest, he is oblivious to the fact that it is even in there, never tries to touch it, and is generally just not interested. I love it so much, though, and know that in future years it will be so special for him to have his ‘own tree’. All items were scooped up at target for cheap/with coupons, and the whole thing was thrown together for less than $20.
My new favorite part of the day is reading stories and singing our lullabies before bed, and rocking my precious boy with the only light coming from the tree. It’s the little things.
Can’t wait to see what all you ladies have to share today!
