a bit of holiday decor

holiday decor!

we’ve never been HUGE holiday decor peeps, but i think baby true has changed all of that. i want to create the magic now. i want the festive, the color, the twinkle. so, we put up our little tree over the thanksgiving break, and while everyone else was at the mall on black friday, i was at my favorite junk shops buying vintage christmas decorations (though i did manage to sneak a quick visit to target, too, for some surprisingly cute ornaments!).

here’s a quick tour of some holiday decor at our home (more home photos, room by room, coming super soon by the way!)

i found the awesome stockings (made from old vintage quilts) at the junk store. there were only three and i scooped them all up. they’re nice and hefty so they can fit lots of treats. one day i’ll make an extra one for bella but for now i’ll share mine:)

the collection of vintage (and some not so vintage) christmas trees is something i’ve been wanting to do for years. i’ve seen this done in magazines galore as well as in the homes of my friends (like hula) and finally, FINALLY we made it happen. i had so much fun shopping for these little trees…

i think my fave decor of all is the collection of vintage ornaments strung together and hanging from our dining room chandelier. love, love. and baby true just stares and smiles each time he sees them. it will be hard taking these down.

on the table below the chandelier sits a simple little arrangement of vintage candle sticks holding vintage ornaments.

we’ve got this little tree on the kitchen island. the blue birdies made from yarn were the surprisingly cute clip ornaments found at target! the tree sits on a cake stand which sits on one of my favorite old plates.

i was inspired to put some of our favorite childhood christmas photos up so i clipped them to a few twigs placed inside a vase. LOVE. you can see the whole thing here. next year we’ll add photos from baby true’s first christmas.



it was love at first sight when i spotted this pink fluffy vintage tree. it’s upstairs in our bedroom and holds our collection of glass birdie clips (vintage + new).


ps: true says hello! he smiles wide like this many many times during the day. i have so much to catch you up on around here. he’s 11 weeks….time. is. flying.

Sending much love,
