what’s old is new

Ever since I can remember my mom has gone all out every Christmas. From multiple trees, to wreaths on every window, to prize-winning front-door decor.  As we have gotten older she has changed things up, and some amazing items have been shared between my sister and I. This year, a perfect little reindeer came my way. The silhouette of this guy is amazing! However, I knew he needed a nice new coat of spray paint, and nothing screams festive like a bold metallic gold. I love the finished product so much, this little guy just may stay out all year.





small spaces for the holidays

I love my apartment, the location, the layout, the size {well perfect for one person}. But, unfortunately my apartment is nowhere near large enough for a full size christmas tree. This year I am focusing on decorating the mantel and have purchased several live wreaths to bring in that Christmas tree smell {p.s. live wreaths at Home Depot are around $5}. I have a large mirror on my mantel that isn’t going anywhere, and I love the idea of hanging a wreath on top of it. Here are a few wreath and mirror combinations I am admiring.
