Preview of My Christmas Decor and a Giveaway!

This year I’m really looking forward to Christmas! My decorating is almost done and that means I can spend the weeks leading up to Christmas enjoying other things … like spending more time with family and friends, baking, attending holiday events, and more.

And… my holiday home tour is next Tuesday!  Eek! I hope you’ll stop by … all week there are different blogger homes you can visit. Tons of Christmas inspiration! Here’s a preview of some of my Christmas decor you’ll see next week!

Christmas Candle in Rustic Terra Cotta PotI like shiny and bright at Christmas.

Throw in a little bit of rustic for good measure.


Bottle Brush Christmas TreesAnd bottle brush trees. I love bottle brush trees!


Vintage Style Christmas WreathBottle brush wreaths are pretty too with their shiny baubles.

This one hangs on my dining hutch along with some silvery beads and garland.


Christmas Candlelight and Jingle BellsAnother Christmas decor must-have is candlelight.

I sprinkled a few jingle bells nearby for a festive look.


Silver Glass Ornament StrandThis gorgeous strand hangs in my family room.

I have a special surprise in that room this year. Can’t wait to show you!


DIY Christmas Decor. Glass Vintage Ornaments on a Christmas TreeMy favorite part of Christmas decorating is trimming the tree.


Vintage Snowman Ornament and Glass BirdThis year I have a new flocked tree from Balsam Hill.

I love its snowy look and the way it shows off the ornaments on the tree.


Christmas Decor VignetteI have a few new additions in the living room, too.
