Around Here: Christmas Edition


We are gearing up to hit the road and gather with brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, nanna and papa for Christmas. Gabriel has been counting down by how many naps he has to take before we leave. Can hardly contain our excitement:) Here is a glimpse of the holiday happenings around our house...

Turned these....
..into this. A silver and gold bulb chandelier to offset the not so pretty ceiling fixture in our rental home:) Work with what you got, and make it your own, right?
(Tie ribbon through and around ends of ornaments and make sure to measure each ribbon strand as you go along to tier. I tied the other ends to the bottom of the light fixture.)

(spools of Midori ribbon)
If I can't paint the door red, I WILL hang a flaming red wreath.

(Her favorite perch. Front and center.)
A well loved tree that seems to gather clusters of ornaments on a single branch close to the level of two eager little toddlers...

The benefits of baking with mama.

(To officially welcome all guests.)

I am super jealous of all of you who got pummeled in snow. 
As much as I love the mild Atlanta winters, I am dreaming of a White Christmas. I am hoping St. Louis will pull through for us:) Happy December from our family to yours!
Love, Anna

  13. I love the little one sitting right by the tree.... So cute! I wish I could have a red door in every home I'll live in for the rest of my life, but I like how you swung it with the red wreath. But, I have to say my favorite is the little ornament fixture. That's SO gorgeous.
