~ Back for the Holidays ~



I can’t believe it’s been over 3 months since my last post.  How is everyone?  I hope y’all had a nice Thanksgiving.  We thoroughly enjoyed our time with our friends and family.  There has been so much going on here, I don’t know where to start so…..let’s just peek inside and see a little Christmas décor. 

Our front door wreath….this is my first time working with mesh….it needs a little tweaking but I wanted something that would withstand the weather.   This also reflects what's in store inside.  Loving fresh greenery & red polka dots this year.  =)


Our living room… far.  I removed our hounds tooth pillows, added polka dot ribbon to 2 Target pillows and made a swag to hang above the sofa.


Another view and you may notice the pretty lady in this photo….her name is Emma and I will introduce you to her soon.   You can also see our new rug. 


A cozy chair~


Have y’all started decorating? I know people who are done…completely finished decorating and shopping.  I have not done any shopping and I will be decorating all the way up to Christmas Eve.  =)  So, what do y’all think? 

More coming soon!

Have a beautiful day~  Jessica

Woohoo!!!! Jessica's back! I see little Emma and she looks like a keeper for sure. Love what you've been doing and those Target pillows look like presents! The swag is beautiful too along with other things you've done.

I'm one of those people that other people hate. I'm done shopping (except stocking stuffers) by Halloween. It's just how our paychecks work. I also worked retail too many years to wait to shop. Can't stand the pushing and shoving and orneriness of holiday shoppers. I nearly caused a riot in JoAnn's in Sept. when I was buying fabric for Christmas and others were panicking about Halloween, lol! It was quite the experience. Can hardly wait to show you what I made!

Decorating....hmmm does this give you a clue....Travis asked IF I was going to decorate for Christmas this year, lol! Now that my knees have given up the ship I can't pull out the decorations from storage or put the totes away and need help. I told Trav about it last July when Nicholas finally came over and put the totes in storage (they'd been in my office since right after Christmas). I was supposed to start decorating last Saturday but no one was available to help me. Hopefully by this Saturday it will be all pulled out and done since Trav comes home in 2-1/2 weeks and I want it done when his plane lands. He assured me he'd put all the totes up for me after Christmas the first time I ask!

Hey Jessica!
Everything looks the polka dots! I'm done decorating and shopping is done except for picking up some things that I ordered site to store. Hope you and your family have a very happy holiday season!
Big hugs,

I love it too! The ribbon is an idea I think I will be borrowing.
