Soft Christmas Office Area

Hope you all had a great weekend.  I started some of my holiday decorating this weekend.  With Covid numbers higher than ever it is hard to even think about holiday cheer but I am trying!



I started with some sweet decor for my office area.  My little cherub pen holder needed a crown!

My sweet friend Linda from Life and Linda sent me this pretty Mannequin angel that belong to her mom.  We both just recently lost our mom's.  I always admired Linda's mannequin angel and after her mom died she sent me her mom's angel mannequin.   It is a duplicate of the one she has.  I will always treasure this sweet angel first because Linda thought of me and how I loved hers and because she wanted me to have her mom's.  

I put this sweet mannequin angel in my office.  Makes me smile everyday.  I did bling her up just a little bit.  I added lights and a crown.  All beautiful angels need a crown right?!

Her crown matched her beautiful necklace.

I loved the feather wings that Linda sent along with this beautiful mannequin.

She has sweet ornaments attached to her pretty tree dress.

I added some pretty white lights.  All angels need to shine.

This is where my design assistant Buddy and I spend the majority of our days.  You can see his office area under my desk! 
With Covid numbers keeping us home I felt I needed a little Christmas cheer in my office area. 
With Linda's help gifting this beautiful mannequin angel I have a cute Christmas space in my office. 
Have you started your Holiday decor?  I am working on my tree and mantel next.  Hope to show you that soon.
Have a great start to the new week.

  2. Kris, my Mom's angel looks fabulous in your office. I love the crown you added. Now, I have to find one for my sweet angel. The lights are lovely. With both of us losing our Moms this year, I know you are smiling because of the cherished memories. xo

  3. Very Sweet, Kris. I love decor that has meaning besides being picked off a Big Box store shelf. And, well, I'm starting decorating for the dolls, lol. We are so in a vacuum whether we will have Thanksgiving...I'll cook and deliver and throw it out the car door window...maybe, lol. Hugs, Sandi

  4. What a lovely gift from your friend, especially since it belonged to her mom. You've made your office space so pretty.

    I haven't started decorating for Christmas and am not in the holiday spirit at all. I'll probably start sometime after Thanksgiving.

  8. Good morning my friend. First of all, how lovely of Linda to send you her mother's angel; I am sorry to hear she too has lost her mother and how are you coping?

    There are no words to describe the pain each one of us feels at some degree after this year. I think we all need to unleash our angels to make this holiday season extraordinary under extraordinary circumstances. Your space is gorgeous and yes, I've started. Maybe I should just share what little I have on my blog.

  11. How sweet of Linda to share something of her Mom's. I love how you made the tree the bottom of her dress! Don't think I'd have thought of that.

  12. Your office is so cute! Very sweet of Linda to share her mom's angel with you. Where did you find the tiny crowns? A Instagram lady I follow from England has a nice crown on her she shed. We all need a crown (or two)! xoxo

  19. What a gorgeous angel! And putting that crown on your little cherub makes me want to look at all my old costume jewelry and see what I can come up with. I used to decorate a small tree with them. I'll have to ask my two design assistants what they think and remind them that if Buddy can help that they should!

  20. I am crying reading this. Linda is the sweetest, most thoughtful person! I just love her! Your angel is perfect for your office....she is definitely you, and Linda knew what she was doing when she sent it to you! I love all the little details about your office. I even like Buddy's work space!

  26. Kris, I am loving those adorable little crowns. They just made your pen holder and the mannequin shine. How very sweet of Linda. She is a kind person. Like you the covid virus is a heavy load. It is weighing me down, or at least my spirits. I pray for it to be controlled soon. Blessings to all of your family, stay safe. xoxo, Susie
