Sweet inexpensive Neighbor Gifts and a Sweet Thank you.

Hope all your Christmas Decor Jingle is going great and all the baking, shopping and cleaning and getting ready for Santa's big day is fun and not a lot of stress.

I wanted to show you a cute little inexpensive neighbor gift I made for each of my sweet neighbors this year for Christmas.

It all starts with a Decor Steals cookie jar.  It is hard to see but it is imprinted in the glass with Fresh Homebaked Cookies.  Red cute top to the jars.

Found this cute neighbor house Christmas bag at the Dollar Store.  Fold out wide to hold the cookie jars.

Added my home baked cut out cookies.

Added some cute gingham ribbon to the jars.

Added a bag of that yummy Christmas Morning Coffee for each neighbor's gift.  So for very little money I have a home made Christmas gift to share with my wonderful neighbors.  Just a sweet treat to say thank you for being a good neighbor.  These would be great for teachers, co workers, well just about any body that loves home baked cookies and a nice cup of coffee.
 Now for a big Hug and Thank you!!!
I got a sweet little surprise treat in the mail last week from Sandi @ Wayside Treasures Blog.  Sandi sent this as a little thank you for having her in the Spotlight Feature.  Not necessary but so appreciated.  Sandi has an Etsy Shop too and makes these pretty items.


Love her hand stamped fabric ribbons and she also made this beautiful angel wing ornament for me.  Sandi it was a sweet surprise and I just love this.  If you have not visited Sandi's blog or Etsy please hop over there you will love her blog and her creative items she sells.
Thank you sweet Sandi.
Happy days ahead as you get your jingle on!
Happy Decorating and holiday preparing as the week slides quickly along.

Nordic Farmhouse Red and White Theme Christmas

This year for my decor I decided to add in some red to brighten and give it a Nordic Farmhouse feel.

Every year I try to do a different decor theme with what I already have and just add some touches or change things up to get a new look from previous years. It keeps it fun and new for me each year.

Starting with my tree, I added the red to all my white and crystal ornaments with just tying off red and white checked fabric bows and adding red and white candy canes to them. The drapes I made out of summer tablecloths that I found on the clearance rack and just sewed a header to make them work for curtains.

I wanted to let the reds do the popping in the decor this year.

Here is a picture of the tree lit. It is so hard to get a great picture with all the lights I have on this tree.

My dining room is the main entertainment area we use during the holidays. This is the room we gather to eat, laugh, love and be all together.

I like natural and simple. Just adding a check ribbon to this flocked wreath gives a statement on the chippy wall door divider without over doing.

I like keeping my cherished pieces in place and just add things to bring in Christmas.  This way I do not have to put anything away and can just embellish what I have.

Keeping the chippy in the decor with my candle sticks. Adding some greens along with a simple white ribbon help to bring Christmas to my candle sticks.

 Farmhouse Christmas Mantel-Junk Chic Cottage-How I Found My Style Sundays Christmas Edition- From My Front Porch To Yours
For my mantel this year I used old frames I had from around the house and just added Greens and touches of the checked ribbon to bring in a winter garden feel. I then hung some red and white stockings and added the birch logs and greens to the chippy fire place log holder. The greens in the log holder have lights and give the soft glow at night like a real fire would give.

I love using my old frames to hang the greens on. Just gives some depth and character to the mantel.

Natural greens and ribbon make a statement hanging on the frame.



My most cherish pieces in my Christmas decor are my collection of angels. Angels give me the feeling of serenity and love so having them throughout my decor is important.

I like to keep my decor light hearted and simple. I entertain and love that we recently made this coffee and dessert bar in my dining room. It is a great area to have for my guests to relax and enjoy.

I have the tree up where this reading chair was so I moved the chair over to this corner of the room. I love to sit and read being surrounded by my Christmas decor. It is a bright warm spot to sit and relax.

Keeping my neutral palette and just adding simple touches of red gave me a sweet farmhouse look to my Christmas dining room.
