It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

I couldn't even wait until Thanksgiving to put up my Christmas decorations this year- I was just so ridiculously excited. On Wednesday evening, despite being exhausted from cooking and serving the Thanksgiving meal at work, I put "Christmas Radio" on Pandora and got to work setting up and decorating the tree. I think it was partly due to finally finding a (very!) affordable white Christmas tree at Walmart, all of the great vintage ornaments I've picked up in recent months calling to me to be displayed, the fact that I'm in my own place and can decorate however I like, and that I'm living with someone who actually appreciates my decorating style. Anyway, here's what I've done so far, I'm absolutely loving how it turned out!

The majority of the vintage ornaments were thrifted, with a few that I've picked up one-by-one in antique shops. The entire Santa display below was thrifted!

Have you already started Christmas decorating? What have you put up so far?


  1. I love your tree! I've always wanted a white one. And all of the decorations are so amazing! We've never done a full-size tree, the cats destroy our table top ones so I think a full-size would be a disaster with those little jerks, haha. We don't have a whole lot of decorations but I guess I'd better start putting them up, as it seems everyone else is already fully decorated!

    1. Thanks Danielle! Yep, we've already had a few ornament casualties and the cats are now staying in the kitchen at night. I can't wait to see your decorations!
