Christmas Decor

I made the Jute covered cones  and the tall topiary below!!!

The tree is mostly decorations the kids have made in school, scouts, etc. over the years.  It's a sentimental tree.

I also made the jute covered balls below.

I'm having fun with my newish copycat Ballards Designs cafe shelves we made.  This is kind of a dark corner in the dining room and the flash really makes the photos look washed out.

All of the embroidery you will see in this post I made.  I am addicted!!  It adds a beautiful and personal touch for next to nothing

My local thrift store has a very large wood box out front that they put free items in.  For some reason they must have thought this vintage santa boot was to shabby.  I have found the best stuff in that box.

I got this cute snowman at TJ Maxx ($6) and the glittery cardinals at Shopko ($2) this year.

My Williams Sanoma knock-off hurricanes from the dollar store.  See my previous post for how I made these beauties for $3 each.

I found this large berry wreath at the local thrift shop for $2.  Score!!!  The noel I found a TJ Maxx this year.

I found this square boxwood wreath at Goodwill for $2 and added the ribbon.

I found the cute little vintage looking tree at the local thrift store for  $1.50.  The women behind the counter said the local nursery donated the rest of their Christmas stock.

My 50 cent snowman decoration on my $2 thrift store cake stand.

Did I mention I love doing embroidery!

I made this cute santa.
