I created an inexpensive holiday centerpiece for our dining room table today. I used three mason jars I already owned, snow & trees I bought at a dollar store, and a small plastic doe the kids had. The total cost was $3.

Holiday Shopping

I am already in the Christmas spirit. I know, I know, we just packed away Halloween. I like to get started with my holiday shopping early, so I can just sit back and relax come December. In addition to the toys on my girl’s wishlists, I have picked out a few treasures of my own to leave them under the Christmas tree.

I love these pillows from Vintage Jane. They have been on my Etsy list forever, and I’ve decided to get one for both of my girls.

This puppet doorway theatre from Land of Nod is adorable! It looks handmade. We already have a collection of puppets, and now my girls will have a stage to perform.

This handmade matchbox mouse is just the cutest! My girls would love to find one of these in their stocking on Christmas morning.

I hope I’ve inspired you with some of my early gift picks. Have you started shopping yet? What will be under your little ones tree?

I am excited to tell you that I found the sweetest vintage dress for a baby that will be PERFECT for Thanksgiving. I will be putting up a giveaway for this dress later on this week, so be sure and check back for that!

Happy November!
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only three weeks away?!? I am looking forward to hosting Thanksgiving dinner at my house again this year. How cute is this recent yard sale find? I will be using this vintage turkey dish to decorate our Thanksgiving table. High-res

A Lovely Holiday Centerpiece for Under $20

I am hosting Christmas morning brunch at my house tomorrow, and I wanted to create a fun centerpiece for the table. I got this idea from another blog I read earlier in the month, but unfortunately I can’t remember which one.

I went to my local arts & crafts store, and I bought some coarse glitter for snow, miniature trees, and picked out a few of my favorite woodland animals. I used a cake stand I already had, and created a winterscape on it for a quick and easy centerpiece.

The best part is that Amelia can play with the animals and trees when I am done with the centerpiece. It is hard for her not to touch it, she thinks it’s great!

I only have two more holiday movies that I must see before Christmas. 

I have already watched Elf, Christmas Vacation, It’s a Wonderful Life, Home Alone 1 & 2, The Santa Clause, all of the classic rudolph and frosty shows, Charlie Brown Christmas, and about a half dozen new Christmas cartoon specials with Amelia.

What’s your favorite holiday movie?
