around the house

since this is the first Christmas in our new house, the decorating is going a little slower this year. i'm not really sure where to put things, and well, you know how it goes.....some of the green on our "greenery" from years past is starting to look a little worn and tattered. so when i found this green holiday goodness at michael's the other day (for 50% off!!), i was thrilled! i decided to poke it here and there in a weathered wood wreath......

but instead of hanging it on the wall, i placed it around our shell collection on the round table in our living room. i really enjoy using simple items in an unexpected way.....and i'm so loving the "coastal Christmas" feel of this!!

p.s. there's still time to leave your name in the hat for my holly jolly giveaway!! i'll be randomly drawing a name tonight, so click here to enter!

Love it, Lori! Seems like you really captured that feel of "Christmas in Florida" :) What is it like living somewhere warm during the holidays? Gosh...I can't even imagine! :) Thank you for your sweet comment on my last post. Your vote of confidence means a lot :)

How cool is the weathered wood wreath, and love the greens in it.

I too like the look of "coastal Christmas". I love the magazine, "Coastal Living" - they have such great ideas!!

I love the combo...the green and the shells and wood!!! What a super idea! It seems that you are full of good ideas!! I am getting antsie to get my decorations up too....we had snow today, so it feels more like the holidays now. Luckily,it was just a light dusting.

This display is so lovely. Your use of beachy items lends a casual and welcoming feel. I think that creating a relaxing atmosphere is a good way to counter the stresses of a busy holiday season.

Love it! Looks really good! Oh, and decorating this yearis going way too slowly for me too, even though this is not the first Christmas in my house. But thanks for the inspiration, I guess I'm gonna do the same.
