Hello there! Yesterday, my son made it home from college for Christmas break, so I spent most of the day chatting and catching up with him. It was great to have all of us under one roof again last night! I’ll be taking a break from blogging starting next week, but before that happens, I […]

Do you enjoy wrapping Christmas gifts as much as I do? At the end of October (or sooner), I start thinking about what my theme will be for the upcoming season. Last year, it was a mix of natural, black & red with handmade chalkboard gift tags. This time, I decided to stick with neutrals […]

Front Porch Decorating: Winter Swag

Winter Swag Outdoor Decorating Project for the Christmas Season

During the Christmas season, I like to keep decorating around our house simple. Aside from our tree and a few tchotchkes, most of our decor is winter-themed rather than Christmas per se.

I started sewing when I was very young. We’re talking pillows and blankets for my barbie beds (which I happened to construct out of shoe boxes), hair scrunchies (they were an 80’s thing in case you don’t know) and, eventually, I worked up to pillows and curtains for my own bedroom. In our previous homes, […]
