Wow, I had such an amazing Thanksgiving Break but I have seriously missed you guys! Last week was so relaxing and I loved every second of it. First Vegas with the hubby, then Thanksgiving with my in-laws, then we went straight into Christmas. This weekend we took our annual trip to our favorite tree farm and cut down our Christmas tree. It was the first year Miss E was aware of the whole process and she was quite the helper. The cutest part was, after my husband cut down our tree she walked right over and sat on the stump like that was the whole point of cutting down the tree.. so she could have her own little seat. So cute. Makes my heart melt.
This weekend was also spent decorating our house for the holidays. It’s not even close to being done yet and I think I added about 15 projects to my ‘to-do’ list, but I did mange to complete a few new things…. just a few.
Remember my Fall Twig Wreath I shared a few months ago? Well, it got winterized this weekend!
After I posted by Fall Twig Wreath, Lucy gave me the idea of painting it white for Winter and I decided to go for it. I’m adding a lot of red to my holiday decor this year and I loved the contrast of the white twigs and the red ornaments.
I used a can of basic white spray paint on the wreath and let it dry overnight. It was so simple and it completely transformed the look of the wreath.
The red ornaments came from The Dollar Tree. Seriously, I love the Dollar Tree. Love.

Have you made your winter wreath for this year yet?
