First of all, how about a Christmas treat and a cup of coffee. Would you like a piece of orange bark?
Want the recipe?
If you know me, you know that I am a thrifty person. I love a bargain and I get such a thrill out of finding one.
When looking over my Christmas decorations, I realized that I hardly spent a thing when collecting festive Christmas decor.
My yo-yo garland didn't cost a thing since I had all the fabrics already. The silver glitter star was a gift at the beginning of the season. I usually put a yellow yo-yo on top as a substitute star so I'm happy to have a more traditional star this year. The wrapping paper (which I talked about here) was dollar for each roll. The aqua pot which the tree is in was a graduation gift from my best friend Kate.
Moving on to my aqua table, you will find two more gifts. The tray was a Christmas gift from my friend Hunter and the holly candle holders were given to me by my dear friend Britni. The holly in the pitcher is a 95¢ Walmart find. It goes great with the display and I'm really surprised at how well it looks for being 95¢.
This might be my favorite display. The top of my desk is the perfect spot. I found the gingerbread houses in Target after Christmas on sale for 19¢ each. The trees were a Marshalls sale item. I believe this was the most expensive item of all my holiday decor at $4.99!
I just love my yo-yo tree (directions can be found here). It's so "me." I paired it with a spruce candle that my grandmother gave to me.
I took my copies of A Christmas Carol off my bookshelf to use as decorations for this month. The candle holder is a loan from Mom.
This graduation gift got a bit of Christmas spice with a clipping from an old card and some stamped paper.
I can't remember when I first got these. I think that they were after Christmas sale items but I can't be sure. The birdhouse picture holder doubles up as a winter decoration, too, which is always fun.
Hope you enjoyed your visit. Come again whenever you like. I'd love for you to stop by!
