Friday Recap

Good Saturday morning friends!! I’m a day late (and usually a dollar short (-;) but I wanted to stop in and share my Friday recap with you all! This week has been full on Christmas and I’ve enjoyed every minute so far!! Here’s a little look into my week through Instagram!


I love vintage goodies placed throughout our home in our décor and this sweet little December calendar I found at an antique store is one of my favorites! The glass pitcher was a Tjmaxx find and I simply added some clipped pine from our yard and a piece of the ribbon I used for our tree bows. I love the simple Christmas cheer!

This collage was shared this week when I blogged about my Christmas DIY Round-Up. I had so much fun this year trying new DIY’s this year and adding them to our Christmas décor. I hope you enjoy them as well!


Our dining room is a sweet little space with red Christmas touches and simple bits of natural elements. If you’ve missed it before, this shelf is from Ikea. I had visions of an old bakers rack or shoe rack and with no luck I finally found this little shelf that worked perfectly. For our Christmas décor in this space I added reds with the tea towels, pillow covers and some ribbon, then lots of greens with fresh pine clippings. Such a simple way to add Christmas cheer.

This accent wall was done using Weaber Lumber, the pillow covers were a DIY, the blanket, basket and lamp are from Target. We spend the majority of our time in this space hanging out with the kiddos playing games, watching movies and an occasional Sunday nap.


Simple details are my favorite. These metal buckets were found at the Country Living Fair a couple years ago. To create this look I placed a candle in the middle of each bucket and then wrapped a grocery sack around the candle to help support it. Once the candle was in place I covered the bag with this green moss I found at Target. The door was from a vintage cabinet, I painted and distressed it and the wooden stars are from the Target dollar spot. Such an easy center piece.


This view will be our view Christmas morning with the addition of a fire and the gifts Santa will bring. I’m also hoping we have a view of snow covered trees Christmas morning. A few details in this space, the clock was a DIY I’ll be sharing in the new year, the stockings are from Target and the tree is a King of Christmas tree that I’m completely obsessed with!


This week I shared a quick and easy DIY for this simple wooden tray that would make the perfect gift for anyone! You can read all about it here! I love having trays like this in our home, they’re so functional or fun to just simply decorate.


Our entry table didn’t get much Christmas decorating but I did add this flocked wreath and ribbon to add some Christmas cheer! The table is from World market and its my favorite non DIY piece of furniture other than our bed!!


Mornings by the fire are my favorite. I shared this photo I took the other morning enjoying my coffee and fake shortbread cookies. 😀 You can read about how I made them in the Christmas DIY Round-up I shared above!! Such an easy project and a fun one for the kiddos to jump in on!


I think that wraps up the week! I hope you all enjoyed this little Friday Round-up on Saturday and I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! I am looking forward to shutting down social media, eating all of the yummy fixin’s and spending the next four full days with my little family. I will be back at the beginning of the new year to share lots of goodness with y’all. Thank you so much for following along! I’m looking forward to an awesome year of growing my blog, sharing our little journey and all the fun DIY’s!

~Happy Reading Friends
