This is the latest I’ve ever waited to put up my Christmas cheer around the house. Between having company, hosting events, fulfilling orders and battling some kind of terrible stomach virus I’ve just now been able to slow down and enjoy the decorating. Two years ago I decided to simplify my Christmas decorating–mainly because it can easily start looking like Hobby Lobby blew up in the house. I sat back one evening and thought about what I really like as far as Christmas decorating goes– the list quickly got narrowed down to simplicity and meaning. Well, two large tubs filled with ornaments and lots of sparkly stuff that I’ve collected over the past 7 years doesn’t really define simplicity and meaning. However a collection of around 20 of my favorite ornaments, a white porcelain nativity set, a jar full of vintage glass ornaments, my Christmas journal book, a few handmade items, a small tree and my Christmas candle does define simple and meaningful. Here’s a little peek at my home at Christmas.
