A little holiday decor at my home…

I made this sign a few weeks ago when I joined in with a local crafty group on their December project.  My friend who runs Chatty Walls let me tag along!  Love this cute little sign…

Below, I got my nativity in Jerusalem 12 years ago when I was there on study abroad.  At the time, I wasn’t sure I needed one, but now I am SO grateful I got it.


Fun having a stairwell and balcony to wrap some garland along.  And our tree we cut down (in previous post).

It makes me happy to pull out these family pics taken for our card 4 years ago.  My daughter likes to laugh as she tells people…my mommy is kissing Santa…my daddy dressed up as Santa!

Another shot of our tree with the sign I made with the vinyl from Chatty Walls.   I got the unfinished cabinet wood door at my local Restore for $3!

I love that I can make up my own phrases with the vinyl and pick size and font, etc.  A few Christmas past “polaroids” too.

Do you like my candy machine with holiday mint m&m’s?  I love it, but have to hide it from my baby….
