Christmas recap in photos!

 I can hardly believe that Christmas is over and 2012 is almost here!  Since I like to think of my blog as a little online journal for myself, I thought I'd share a little bit of the Christmas pictures I took this year.

Our holiday decor.  I kept the wrapping very simple this year with just some kraft paper and fun ribbon.  I made all the bows myself and the ribbons were all purchased from JoAnn Craft store.  The red tree and the plant were found at a boutique flower shop last year.  I love pulling out our holiday decor but some of it was so buried in our storage that I couldn't get to it and had to order a bunch of new decorations!  (Cleaning that storage is top of my new year's goals!)

(i downloaded and printed off the gift tags from Creature Comforts round up of free holiday gift tags! Thank you to The Sweetest Occasion and Ellinee for the cutest gift tags! ) 

My husband was very thoughtful and spotted these roses for me and I loved that it went with our holiday decor.

I also keep a little space just for my "girly" holiday decorations. :)  Christmas2011-6Christmas2011-5
Just some of the goodies that I made.  I had never had homemade chex mix before but decided to make it and YUM!  So addicting.  I put a bowl out and in an instant it was gone.  I made chex mix 3 mornings in a row!  And white chocolate covered pretzels are so delicious!

I just had to include this picture of me and my super adorable nephew in the sweater we got him.  We love H&M kids where we bought him this sweater.  He just looked so darn cute in his little winter sweater and I was wearing a cozy winter sweater too so I had to get a photo with him!  :)

  18. AWwwwwwwww....I love this post!!! It’s soo festive, cosy, warm, and filled with LOVE!!!!!!!!! I like how you have the word ISH;)

    I never thought of wrapping gifts in brown paper with colorful bows, it’s actually quite nice and stylish!!! I always use x’mas print wrapping paper but I guess that can be changed for next Christmas,hehe.

    Gosh, your cookies and cookie tins are soo cute! And adore your x’mas décor! What a sweet hubby you got, I wish I could get some roses right now! Hahaha

    And lastly, your nephew is super cute (too bad he didnt smile, then he'll melt all those girl's hearts,lol) and that winter sweater is adorable on him. Yes, I agree, H&M kids have great collections and their outfits are stylish at a good price.

    Hope you had a very merry Christmas and all the best to 2012!!! Wishing you a happy new year Tiffany=D

    Looking forward to what you have in stored for your blog in 2012!!!
