For me, it's easier to decorate one little area of my home at one time for the holidays, and then move on to the next...time permitting of course. I discovered this after having children. If I attempt to tackle an entire room it just doesn't work.
Ending up with rooms only half completed and incorporating the green and red storage tubs as part of my holiday decor, is just not the look I go for.
So what I will do with my blog is record my completed holiday decor...as it occurs. It may take me until 3 days before Christmas to finish everything, but you'll see it all.
I like to wait a few more weeks before I snag some greenery from the outdoors and purchase my berries. Those two things always make this collection look so pretty! So stay tuned.
About my collections/stuff: The shelving unit was retrieved from the trash of a former neighbor of mine. Free. Each of the white pottery pieces cost between $.50 to $3 each. The crystalized branches were given to me by my mother. She received them (and more) from a family friend that works in a gorgeous landscaping nursery. Free. Vintage silver balls - Purchased 3 large boxes at a thrift store. $1/ box. Linen wrapped box - The box was used to hold seashells I purchased at a barn sale. Free Vintage disc dangelies cut from old Bingo cards given by my mother. Free
