Craving Cozy...

When the weather grows colder and the days become shorter,
more time is spent indoors and we all seem to crave the coziness of home!

I thought I'd share a few things from our home that have 
helped it feel warm and festive during this holiday season. 

(These items also show that decorating doesn't have to break the bank!)

I love these little wreaths from Trader Joe's! The "ribbon" is torn drop cloth material.

This fabric garland is made from burlap, lace and muslin strips. 
A simple DIY tutorial can be found here.

We strung up a collection of cookie cutters with twine in our kitchen windows. 

I found these paint-by-number deer artwork recently at an antique store in Sand Point, Idaho. They add a rustic, woodsy feel to our family room shelves.

I picked up this wood basket at a thrift store for just a few dollars. The little tree was free with purchase of the bigger Christmas tree we cut down. I made the pom garland in the car on the way home from Thanksgiving. Doesn't everyone travel with craft scissors and large amounts of yarn?? 

This is a chalkboard print I found here for free. 
I had it enlarged at a local copy center for about $5 or $6 dollars.

My sister made me this adorable sweater pillow. 

She also stamped this sweet canvas sign in barn wood frame. 
Hooray for a crafty sister and hooray for a December birthday! 

I am forever grateful that Love was born in a barn… 

It reminds me of something I just read that I think you'd enjoy too!

A dear friend sent me this personalized ornament made by Timree
It captures the farmhouse feeling our family has grown to love 
and is also a sweet reminder of friendship.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. 

I always love hearing from you and am so honored 
you would share a few minutes of your day with me!
