deck the halls!
yeah! i'm finally feeling better, and we're getting gussied up for december around here.
we have so many wonderful and interesting ornaments, given to us mostly by our mommas.
i treasure them and the memories each one holds.
darin built a fire in the woodstove and made us hot cocoa.
below are his two favorites. my mom got him the devil at a craft fair a couple years ago.
every year now when we unpack the decorations he's like, "where's my devil? where's my devil?"
the other one is from his boyhood, which he is obviously still kinda stuck in :)
we have lots of old sixties ornaments that came from my grandma and mom.
i love how detailed and quirky they are.
this was a funny gift from joey and em two years ago. yes i am mildly addicted. (gross i know)
taking time out to snuggle our little christmas kit.
later, he was not so relaxed....christmas tree, beware!
every year i consider trying a theme, like rose-pink or turquoise, or snowy white.
but it always ends up a big folksy countryish conglomeration. and to me that looks homey and cheerful so (again) tidy precision out the window.
sweater: my mom's from the 70s
blouse: hospice, thrifted over the summer for $1.50 (wearing it everyday lately)
black skirt: hospice, thrifted
legwarmers: gift from emily last christmas (etsy)
happy holidays to all of you!
can't wait to make crafts, buy recycled gifts, bake, and list pretty vintage party dresses on etsy.
and most of all, to celebrate the solstice!
what are you looking forward to in december?
