I am totally that girl. The one who listens to Christmas music in November, who has her shopping done by Thanksgiving, and puts all of her decorations up at least 6 weeks before the holiday.
Overboard? Perhaps. But I don’t care. I flippin’ love the holidays.
I’m in the process of gathering inspiration for my decor this year. The last few years, I stuck with a red and silver theme. Lots of berries, jeweled fruit, sparkly snowflakes, etc. It was gorgeous if I do say so myself. But this year, I want to go for a more rustic wintery look, using white, silver, green, and brown. I think it will work well with the cottage style of my home, and the gray paint throughout my living and dining rooms.
So here’s my inspiration photos I have thus far. You’ll have to forgive me again for not having sources. I peruse blogs and Google images, copy and paste them all into giant Word docs, and never remember to include the source. Bad blogger.
I plan to adapt this idea for my dining room chandy.
I love this three wreath look.
This is so creative. I think it’s via Pottery Barn. But it would be a super simple DIY. Thick branches, twine, small buckets painted and stenciled.
via The Nester. I love this method of hanging a wreath in front of a mirror with ribbon. It would be gorgeous with a cypress wreath like this one (however I’m not paying $99 for the Pottery Barn one):
And I just love everything about this photo.
I’ve also been collecting some vintage Christmas clip art from The Graphics Fairy. This is such a great site for DIY art ideas. Here’s some of the pictures I might use for my own holiday art.
I looove this sheet music cover. I’m Polish, and I always used to listen to polkas with my Grandpa. So this would be such a cool, personal piece of art.
Soo there you have it. The first of many Christmas posts from this girl. Am I the only nut who’s got Christmas on the brain?
Apparently I’m not! Roeshel over at the DIY Showoff is a girl after my own heart :)
