Loving This Week: Christmas Edition

The countdown is officially on - less than two weeks until the big day! Naturally, this week's "Loving" series is going to be chalk full of Christmas related items…so here goes:

Burlap and Lace

1. Did you see this DIY from Burlap and Lace blog? Gold dipped ornaments string lights. So cute! Some people are just so crafty. Meanwhile, I put an ornament and some faux snow into a dead terrarium (spoiler alert!) and I think I'm good.

2. This post from The Inspired Room blog, reminding us that Christmas is about memory making, not overdoing and stressing. Something I have to keep reminding myself of every time I look at my unfinished decorating and unwrapped presents and unmade cookies and cakes…you get the idea. 

3. These two. 
Last week we went to the mountains to cut down our own tree. One member of our group was really into it and the other was really into working on her model pose. Can you guess which one was which? Ah, making memories...

4. Speaking of memories, we started a new tradition a couple of years back where we make a big to-do of decorating our Christmas tree as a family. It usually involves a fire in the fireplace, carols playing in the background, snacks and family decorating, followed by dinner and a Christmas movie. This year, I'm making the Sunday Sauce from Southern Living. I'll be sure to let you know how it is. Looks amazing!

The Hunted Interior

5. So many cute ideas in this one post from the Hunted Interior blog. Where to even start: the wreath chandelier, the printed menus with sparkly earring attached, the fun winter inspired pillows. Love this little nook, even more each time she makes it over. 

Have a great weekend!

until next time,
