Today kicks off the "25 Days of Christmas" hosted by Star and Jmo. If you're a Christmas fanatic like I am, then you're sure to love the daily blog topics Star and Jmo have chosen! The first topic of the countdown is: Christmas Decorations.
Currently, my Christmas decor is a jumble of things - a little bit modern, a crap ton of glitter and sparkly things, a childish piece here and there, and some folksy primitive style weaved through. Does it work? Ehh... I make it work. For now. My tree is definitely a keeper; however, I plan to phase out the remainder of the decor and gradually replace it with pieces that are clean, cheery, and modern. Since I will be living somewhere completely different next year, I want a fresh, new look for the Holiday season. Here are some examples of holiday decor that are currently inspiring my future "Christmas Decoration Revamp":
|Marimekko Bedding Collection, Crate & Barrel|
|Fiestaware in Christmas Tree Pattern, Shamrock, |
and Scarlet, Homer Laughlin China Co.
|Vintage inspired ornaments and glass bead garland, Restoration Hardware|
|Can you tell that I love Crate & Barrel?|
|Vintage inspired garland, Restoration Hardware|
|Outdoor decor, Pottery Barn|
Ahh... how's that for cheery holiday inspiration?

Tomorrow, I'll be featuring the work of a super talented artist, Carrie Lawson. She and I grew up in the same small county in West Virginia, and graduated from the same high school. For someone who has had no formal training, Carrie produces phenomenal, powerful artwork that is keeping her very busy this holiday season. I can't wait to share her positive spirit and talent with you!
Have a great Monday, and be sure to come back tomorrow for Day 2 of "25 Days of Christmas"!
