Hints of Christmas (House Tour: Part Two)


First and Foremost, I again want to say that my prayers are with the families who lost sweet little loved ones on Friday. I cannot imagine what they must be going through, and it pains me to think that I am writing about my christmas decor, when Christmas will always be a time of pain for these families and loved ones. 

*******************************************************************
If you remember from Part One, my family really had to scale down Christmas this year.
While I'm sure my mom and brother would've been fine putting up no decorations at all, I had to at least have something. Nothing big, because we certainly have done big before, but just hints. 
So, here are our "hints" of Christmas. 
Okay, I also have to admit that the majority of this "house" tour is actually my bedroom.
Like I said, my mom and brother were being scrooges, so I decorated my room and let them be humbugs.



Here is an overview of my bed!
I added lights and lots of Christmas pillows.

Both the white tree pillow and the striped tree one (down below) came from goodwill.


This one is my favorite!

This darling lamb came from a craft show. 

She is made up of little scraps of christmas fabric. It is just adorable.

Moving to above my bed...
The mirror was a curbside find and the garland came from a yard sale for $1



Next, is my bedside table.
The tree came from goodwill for 50 cents and the cute little snowman was my grandmothers (Thanks Nana!)




Even my mannequin got some winter love!
Everything she is wearing came from either a yard sale or goodwill




and next to her is my dresser.
I added this amazing find from goodwill for 50 cents.
I love how the three trees are all different sizes.

and the last thing in my room to get some Christmas love was my bookshelf:


This plaque came from homegoods for less than $5.
(it's my favorite Christmas song!)


and below that I added these cute little guys from Pier one a few years ago.

and I also brought out this book my mom gave me when I was little. 
I love to re-read it every winter.

and now on to our living space!


You've already seen our tree.






but see that little guy peeking on the left?

Here he is up close!
We got him at homegoods a few years ago.

and finally, our back door.
We purchased the candy cane last year on the day after Christmas, at our local Kroger.
They were trying to get rid of it and we scored it for $3!

I'll show you our front door tomorrow (god-willing)
Until then enjoy your monday!
