I’m a tad late to the party.  I hope that you don’t mind.  I know that Christmas is very close…and we will all be into our January organizing.  (I love that.) I did want to share an up close and personal look at the Farmhouse Christmas mantle though.  I love the way that it turned out this year.  Pretty basic and simple, not a lot of fuss.  Just my style.

All of Instagram went batty over the JOY marquee lights at Target.  I was right in the middle of them.  There are several that have mentioned leaving them up all year.  I think that everyone could use a wonderful dose of JOY all year long.

Are you a little crazy about bottle brush trees?  I am.  They just seem like Christmas from years ago.  I love them in these little peat pots.  So cheery and sweet.

My Christmas shopping has been a little delayed this year.  Hopefully I will get that taken care of soon.  I am starting to get really excited about the prospect of giving.  Gifts are big on my love language scale.  I love to give them.  I’m having a hard time though with the Mr.  I have given him ideas…but he has supplied me with none.  (Yes…I’m talking to you.)  😉

I hope that the days are sunny in your neck of the woods.  At this very moment, I can hear our kids out sledding and screaming.  They have been out of school for several days and I feel like it has been a huge blessing.  There is something very comforting about having your family wrapped around your heart.
