I think it’s no secret around here that I love decorating with trees for Christmas. Like trees of all kinds, full size, table top, mercury glass, and especially bottle brush trees!! I love their cute petite size, and the texture they add, but most of all it’s their whimsical feel that has me loving the festive touch the add to just about any surface. They are so versatile and can be used just about anywhere, maybe that’s why I love them so much!! So I’ve rounded up some of my favorite photos from past years of decorating with bottle brush trees for Christmas, and sharing a few of my favorite places I like to scoop this tiny trees up!
Hello Friends!! I can’t believe the time has come to include the word “Christmas” in my post titles, but alas we are here. I’m so excited to share our open shelves in our kitchen with you today! They are my favorite place to make festive for the holidays. Honestly, I wish I could leave up the christmas decor on our kitchen shelves all year long, because that is just how much I love it! I recently gave these shelves a little makeover. I took them all down and sanded them and refinished them. To see the process you can click HERE. Here’s a look at how I started bringing Christmas into the kitchen this year.
Today I’m sharing a gingerbread cookie recipe with you, that varies a bit from the recipe we used to make the houses with. You could still eat the gingerbread houses we made as kids, but it was pretty hard. However, this recipe will make the softest gingerbread cookies, and honestly you will have a hard time waiting for them to cool to put the icing on them, and I guarantee you will want to share these with your friends too!

Hello Friends!!! I can’t believe we are in November already. I’m trying desperately to soak in everything this season has to offer, as well as finishing up a few projects I’ve been secretly working on around our home, before I begin to break out the Christmas decor. But I had an epiphany recently, and I wanted to share it with you. I know what you’re thinking, permission? Permission for what? But before I can give you this answer, I have to explain how I got to this conclusion.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have caught a sneak peak of a little makeover I did towards the end of last week. As I was settling back into my routine here at home after my trip to Waco, I finally got the nerve to see if I could give my kitchen shelves a little makeover. It was like my brain needed a little break, as it was still processing all the wonderful things from last weekend, and a little DIY was just what I needed. I had been contemplating giving our kitchen shelves a makeover a few times before, but just never got up the gumption to tackle it. Well, I did! And I think you will love the outcome!
Hi Friends!! Have you ever tried to remove labels off of glass bottles? Perhaps you found the cutest wine bottle in the whole wide world, that would totally make the cutest vase ever, only to be discouraged because you can’t get the dang label off? Sound familiar? Maybe you have been there too. I always have the best intentions in repurposing things, and then tend to give up halfway through when it becomes more of a struggle rather than a thrifty rescue. Until, I stumbled upon this method!
