Santa Belt Napkin Rings

I love to decorate for Christmas, especially the dinner table.  And since the theme in our home this year is Santa, these are perfect.

If you’re looking for an easy way to add some whimsy to your Christmas Table, this might be what you’re looking for.

Brown Christmas Wreath

Another Christmas has come and gone.  Most of the gifts have been exchanged.  (Although there are a few gifts that still need exchanged.  Being sick over the holidays is no fun.)

This wreath was made for a friend who loves the color brown.  I couldn’t post this earlier, because the recipient of this wreath reads my page, and she’d have known what she was getting before she got it.

Pink Shabby Chic Centerpiece

I apologize for not posting last week.  I really wanted to get this post up, but I managed to sprain my wrist, and typing with a sprained wrist is not easy.  So, I’m ‘hunting & pecking’ this post.

With the Christmas season upon us, I’ve been working on some new items for the home, gifts & some more orders.  This is the first centerpiece for the season.  It’s so easy to make, using items available at any craft store or the Dollar Tree.

This is my pink, Shabby Chic Centerpiece:

Black & White Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas everyone!  I know that this isn’t a traditional tree, but it’s something that I’ve been wanting to try for years.  Well, this is the year!  I finally have my Black & White Christmas Tree. (I can hear my sister groaning already 😉 )  I’ve been collecting black, white, crystal, iridescent & silver ornaments for several years for this tree.  Finally,  I got to use them.

Holly Jolly Tablescape

Ever since I thought of this tablescape, I’ve had the song, “A Holly Jolly Christmas” in my head.  I guess it’s because the entire tablescape was inspired by holly.  This is my Holly Jolly Tablescape!

Christmas Angel

I’ve been making these Christmas angels for years, and no matter what style you make her in, she always looks wonderful.  This is going to be a long post that is heavy with pictures.  It’s not a hard project to make, just a little time consuming, but so worth the time.  This little Christmas Angel can be customized to fit any decor by changing up the fabric, trim & accessories.  She can be used as a centerpiece or grace the top of your tree.  This is how I made my Christmas Angel.

“O Christmas Tree” Tablescape

This Christmas Tablescape was inspired by the stoneware. Creatively Sam’s isn’t quite a year old yet, and I’ve been wanting to use this all year!   Every time I look at this stoneware, I find myself humming the song, “O Christmas Tree”.  Welcome to my “O Christmas Tree” Tablescape!

White Christmas Tablescape

As most of you know by now, I love white.  So it was only natural for me to create a White Christmas Tablescape.  The inspiration for this tablescape started with a white sleigh.

Shabby Chic Lilac Village

I’m usually drawn to a more modern decor, but there is a ‘girly’ side of me that loves Shabby Chic.  I wanted to do a new Christmas Village vignette this year, and since my favorite color is lilac, I decided to go with that color.  Here’s how I turned Dollar Tree houses into a Shabby Chic Lilac Village.
