Sunday night was a fun one! Jake and I whipped out the Christmas decor! With boutiques coming up, and lots of sewing I have been needing to do, I thought….why not put up the Christmas decor while I have some time!? haha I didn’t want to pass over Thanksgiving and not give it the recognition it needs (its important to be grateful!) but life’s been so crazy busy, I guess I am skipping every holiday. Halloween, My bday and Thanksgiving! I keep telling Jake, the holidays will not start till December 16, after all boutiques and sewing is over! And I am totally fine with that 🙂 At least with some Christmas decor it will make the home feel homey!
Putting on christmas ornaments. We did an all handmade christmas tree ornaments this year! We got most of our ornaments and Anthropologie and Crate and Barrel! Oh they have the best stuff!
I like how you can barley see Tuna and Pokey sitting on the couch staring at the Christmas tree lights. They were so excited for the lights to be hung! I think I may need to string some lights on the brick wall and on the stair railing.
I made these burlap stockings last year. If you would like to make some too, here is a tutorial on them.
I got Jake and I Mickey and Mini stockings for us to use on Christmas. I lined the burlap stockings, but I dont want to use them for our stockings so I got us these ones! There is just something nice about a soft, cozy Christmas Stocking! I cant wait for Santa to use them 🙂
This year will be my first Christmas not at home in AZ 🙁 and not going to Disneyland. Jake was so sweet and let me go get a little Disney fix at the Dinseystore! I could not resist these super cute Pooh, Pluto, Stich, Mickey, Mini in their Christmas winter attire! They were so dang cute! Now I can look at them everyday and pretend I am at Disneyland seeing the pretty castle lights and watching the firework show. haha
Every christmas season, I love to buy Christmas movies! I am such a movie gal! I love movies, and holiday movies…even better! So of course, with Christmas already in stores, I am already buying Christmas movies 🙂 Cant wait to watch A Very Perry Christmas!
I think I am a little to excited for Christmas…..I even got all my families Christmas presents and sent them to their homes. haha Sometimes I am a little to extreem. haha Now time to decorate the rest of the house Christmasy!!

I really like the snow globes in mason jars. Every year it's on my list to make some. Maybe this will finally be the year I do it… we'll see!
I love that you chose to have some "exposed" brick in your house. It really turned out awesome!
