Christmas Decor 2013

Over the last week I worked on putting up our Christmas tree and decor. I kept things simple this year since we'll be out of town for Christmas. That seems to be my running theme lately…simple. I am still loving the natural and neutral decor I have been using the last couple of years now! 

I loved the look of the cotton on the tree in my booth so much that I added some to our home tree as well. 



I bought the gold mirror over the summer at a garage sale. I intended to sell it in my booth, but it looks so good here on our cabinet, I may not be able to part with it!






 


I found these adorable wood trees in one of the booths at the antique mall where I have my booth. They were unfinished so I gave them a quick coat of stain.

Feather ornaments from Target! LOVE!!!

 I bought this birch ornament from my friend and fellow vendor, Janet from White Barn Vintage.



See, I warned you. Very simple, but simply perfect!

Before I go, I just wanted to mention I'm teaming up with Audra from Keepin Up With the Jahns, Jenna from Rain on a Tin Roof, and Kim from Exquisitely Unremarkable again! We will be co-hosting a Christmas Decor Link Party beginning Thursday, December 12! I hope you'll stop back and link up!

  11. ooooh, I LOVE your collection of wooden trees, and I think I may make some with some of the reclaimed wood scraps I have lying around. Definitely pinning that's for sure. I also love your cotton bolls displayed in your pitcher. It's funny how something so basic and organic can look so fantastic!
