It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year . . .


I love chilling at home this time of year amongst Christmas trees, wreaths and just everything Christmas! It's such a cozy feeling!! I've still been tweaking some things here and there, and added a few touches to our living room. We have a fireplace and mantel in our den/breakfast room area but not in our living room. So I kind of had to get creative and do something in our living room that made me feel as if I had a mantel to decorate. I had a picture frame, minus the glass and all - just the frame. I took it and set it on top of our amoire and hung a wreath from it. I thought about doing the wreath alone, but something about the frame just kind of added a touch I thought. I also have my fresh flowers with berries - which I LOVE. Tomorrow I will show the arrangements I did for the girls at work, they were so pretty.!


Oh and Mr. Big wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas!!!

I love, love, love the idea of the frame with the wreath in the middle! I might have to do that to my mantle. The top of my fireplace is bricked all the way to the ceiling and I feel like it is such a huge space to fill! I had a huge mirror up there, but still didn't feel like it was enough! Super cute idea sister!!
