Sew Merry: Around The Home

Wow! We made it! The last official day of blogging for this holiday season. That’s 20 days of blogging all things Christmas here at my house. And to be honest with you, I’m kind of done and ready to move on. I have lots of ideas for new non-holiday projects and I’m excited to get started on some things next week.

Today I thought I would wrap up by showing you some spaces in my home that didn’t get blogged about. They were just little touches of Christmas here and there that didn’t require a whole post on their own. Ready? Here we go!

My Christmas cards have been filling up my poster. The string kept falling down so I had to change how I was displaying them.

I had so many cards I had to find a new space for some of them. But I like it because it makes the breakfast nook feel festive.

I also added a leaf garland that I made a couple of years ago.

I added a paper star garland that I made last year to the window in the dining room. I love little touches like that.

On my front storm door I put this wreath up. Normally this wreath is pretty plain and I like it that way but this year I added some ornaments to it along with the chalkboard banner I made last month. I also strung up some outdoor Christmas lights for the first time ever! It was really fun and it’s the thing that I have been enjoying the most this season. Unfortunately, I don’t have a photo :(

As if a wreath on the storm door weren’t enough, I also added this metal sign to the front door. I have had this for a while and I love it!

Once you come inside again, I taped up a poster that I made using a freebie from Shimtokk.

I gathered some branches from our tree out front and hung a few ornaments from it. Surprisingly, our cat hasn’t even once tried to knock them off. I really can’t believe it!

Another banner taped to the wall like the one I put on my lampshade.

Another garland that I made last year now has it’s temporary home in the entryway.

And our mantle all done up. Our fireplace in in the family room and it is the only thing that gets decorated down there. The stockings were done 2 years ago. The reindeer I found this year at Goodwill. They were originally gold and I spray painted them white.

The gold Merry is also from last year.

And one more thing to show you…

Some Christmas cards that I made for a friend. Her favorite color is purple and I figured that could feel festive so I added it in instead of using the traditional green and red :)

And that about wraps it up! Only a few more days left and it will all come down. And I’m kind of looking forward to it! How about you guys? Are you ready for the new year, new start?

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and are able to enjoy every minute!!
