The Best Way To Spread Christmas Cheer...

Oh, how I love Elf. I'm not a fan of movies and Christmas movies aren't the exception. However, however, I do love me some Elf. I laugh out loud and cry like a baby at the end. It's delightful all the way around.

Our home is all decked out and looking rather Christmas-y this time of year. Not overkill, but just enough to make me smile. I even thought about keeping the tree up longer this year because it makes me just that happy.

Enjoy, friends. : )

I found the large glitter snowflakes at Dollar Tree this year. What a cheap and chic purchase! All I did to hang them was tie a little bit of clear fishing line and I was set!



I made the ribbon trees last year after seeing some fabulous inspiration ones in the Coach store.



I think our tree could use some more ornaments, so I'm definitely ready for those after Christmas sales!







I'd love to see all of your decorations, too. Point me in the right direction and I'll stop by.

xoxo

I love ELF too!! My little boy is crazy about it now since I love it so much (he is 15 months old.) It is one of my all time favorite movies Christmas or otherwise. I love your decorations... I was also inspired by Elf...

OMG! I have that same frame. Saw it at an estate sale and it was priced too high. A week later I saw that it had been donated to a thrift store and it had the same price tag on it but the thrift store marked it down by 50%! I painted mine white but now that I see yours I wish that I had left it gold. Love the snow flakes in it!

You are so chic, girl. I'm posting our Christmas decorations later this week. Your whole home looks lovely.

I have to say, I probably err on the side of overboard for Christmas, but it makes me happy, so I give myself a pass. =)

Aura-Those trees took quite a long time and I think I burnt half the skin off of my fingers from all of the hot glue I touched...BUT, I love how they turned out and I'd do it anyday again!

Everyone! Thanks for commenting. I'm off to check out your Christmas decorations right this instant : )
