Adding these favorite things to our home this weekend.
I love the simple garland and monograms in white thread….I waited to the last minute to have these done…You can still see the hoop indentations on the stockings ha! Hot off the press! I am still tweaking but I am loving the additions. The fresh boxwood is from awholesale source I use but I heard Trader Joe’s has them in select stores!!!! The antique french mirror was a Round Top find in the spring and I’ve been planning this wreath over its since I carried it home! Our ” O Holy Night” print just moved to a nearby wall! And hands down my favorite red satin ribbon is from Charles Clay & Sons, you can usually find it at Container Store.
The last couple of years I used these gorgeous stockings by MAKE but now we finally have four! And I think the boys will grow into them better than burlap with linen ruffles (these even have a more “boyish font” monogram on the verso incase they want to display those later) BTW, I think i have convinced Michelle to offer a few more coffee bag stockings this year if you are interested! (let me know in comments)…I also can’t wait to show you some special stockings from Etsy this week…maybe tomorrow! Meanwhile it’s all boxwood, burlap and blue and white here. I was so relieved to unpack my Christmas boxes from the attic and see my silhouette “ornaments” are still intact..no warping or wrinkles..so glad I can use those on the tree again! Glass ornaments are still packed away for safety! Maybe next year!
I had just enough plaid ribbon for this project outside on the windows and front door!
Hope you had a great weekend…for me it’s time to put away the cares of the world and focus on Advent and the birth of my Savior.
