Hello lovelies! Here's a peek at our Christmas home, just in the nick of time. Will be sad when it all comes down but we have taken full advantage of all the fresh greens and cozy furs and plaids, some of which can stay through the winter to continue to keep us warm. But most will of course be tucked away soon, so let's enjoy it for a minute before we say good bye again. :)
I used to be a sparkle girl when it came to Christmas decor (and still am a die hard with my holiday wardrobe) but at some point I started loving all the natural, woodsy Christmas pretties, all the amazing smells and textures the season brings. And so now it all tends to have a fresh cut tree, garland, and pinecone theme throughout. I think it's beautiful to have all those wonderful earthy elements inside while still adding plenty of the sweet whimsy with all the sparkling ornaments and little tabletop vignettes. I mean, give me a dinosaur dipped in glitter any day!
And here are a couple of sweet traditions Scarlet has loved this month. Haven't had a chance to photograph all of our meaningful memories, big and small, with my fancy cam. But I did capture these two, her advent calendar with a new choc every evening (a highlight of our lives right now) and her gingerbread baking.
