Decking The Halls & Filled With Joy of My Blogs Year Anniversary!

Holy Moly! I cannot believe I’ve had my blog for a year now. I’m so grateful for each and everyone of my followers and the amazing people that read my blogs! You guys are amazing. I just go back to the first blog I wrote and how scared I was to start my blog but, here we are a year later. I hope I’ll be doing this for more years to come. I just want to thank you all for the support. Now, let’s get into the holiday spirit and talk Christmas decor.

My house has been decked out for Christmas since the 1st of November, some may say that is way too soon but, I don’t care. I look forward to decorating for Christmas all year sadly, this is the first year that we won’t have a Christmas tree though. You can read all about our Christmas tree fail in a post I wrote last year. Since, then I’ve been a bit hesitant with buying a real tree again and well, living overseas you don’t have a wide range of choices for an artificial tree. We only have the MCX and the choices they have are super expensive and in my opinion, not worth the price. I’ve always had a real tree growing up, I love the smell and how green and full they are. Once, I’m back home I will be splurging on my dream artificial tree or trees… you know maybe one for every room. Haha. Some of the decor I already had from last year and some I found at my local thrift store or got at target. There aren’t a lot of places to shop for decor like back in the states there’s Marshall’s, tjmaxx, and of course target! Not everything they have is online and stuff I would love to buy won’t ship here. So, I had to do work with what I had. I’m loving all the neutral and white decor I’ve been seeing everywhere but, it’s something about the traditional colors like green and red that scream Christmas and I’m not ready to change colors at least, not now maybe when I go back to the states and I have options. For the time being this is how my humble home looks.

The green and red throw pillows I got at one of the Japanese dollar store. For a total of $4 I have cute pillows. These are our stockings from last year and the wreath I made last year as well. My placemats and the runner that’s on my coffee table are from target. The snowman I’ve had for years and the signs are from daiso.

This is probably my fave spot in the living room. This huge snow globe plays music and the bottom turns. I absolutely love it and it’s one Jason’s favorite things to look at. I have a picture of my squishy on his first Christmas, some nutcrackers from hobby lobby, and my recent purchase from target is this mercury glass tree. This little spot is so magical to me and makes me so happy.

The decor in my beauty room is a bit different, I wanted to make it a pink wonderland since, it’s the main color already. I wanted to mix the metals and have a pop of pink. The silver and white wreath and the tall golden tree is from the local thrift store.

The deer, nutcracker,the small rose gold mercury glass tree, and the candle holder in the middle are from target. I diy the white tree with things from the Japanese dollar store and finally a cute picture of my sweet baby boy.

I hope you all enjoyed this little tour of my home in all it’s Christmas glory. Once, again I want to thank each and everyone you for all the support and making this a great year!
