We’ve never been big on outdoor Christmas decorating. I think mostly because D knows I’m not going to get out there and do it, and it’s always cold as
Christmas balls so I don’t push him to. (Very much.)
But we had a 60 degree Sunday recently and guess what?
Went straight Griswold.
Here’s something else you should know about. The winter edition of Vintage KC magazine is out! And it doesn’t disappoint. D is officially getting mustache wax in his stocking this year.
Erin invited her local DIY bloggers to participate in a section again and provided mini Christmas trees for us to do with as we would. The results were adorable. Mine is below, but it really is worth clicking (or buying!) to check out the rest.
My take on an old-timey garland was to string cranberry and popcorn. I’m happy with the classic, slightly rustic feel.
Also in the issue is some really beautiful inspiration for your Christmas parties this year. I actually got to attend and enjoy all the stunning treats and decorations, and while there, catch up with a buddy from grad school!
That’s Kristen! She has Hey Paul Studios, just the coolest and cutest stitchery of all time EVER! Here’s a link to her blog and to her Etsy shop. She’s also got a mini Christmas tree featured in the magazine. I hope you’ll check out all three.
Look at me just handing out Christmas ideas!
Take a gander at Vintage KC, and let me know if you end up doing any of the great ideas therein, or if you end up with something from Hey Paul, I wanna see!
(I totally got one of these for my brother.)
PS – Linking up here, and you should too!
