Rustic Christmas Mantel

The mantel is usually the first place I decorate for the new season.

Well, this year, it wasn't.

The first holiday decorations were added to this space right HERE

Nonetheless, the mantel got a very deserving second place. ;)

Contrary to last year's decor when

Hi Friends,

I've been working like a tiny elf decking the halls of our home, and you know what?  I'm loving it!

All of the decorations...

The extra lights...

How warm the house feels when it's so cold outside.

It's all so exciting!

Today I want to share with you

A Few of my Favorite Things

Happy Monday everyone!

Are you excited about Thanksgiving this week? I am!

Last Friday evening I was helping my sister-in-law setting up the Thanksgiving table and adding some other decor around her house. We're going to be celebrating there on Thursday and then on Saturday we're heading out to begin our Christmas shopping.


For us it all starts on Saturday, not Friday. A tinsy-bit less crowded and we're a lot more rested. ;)

Last week I was also making my Christmas list. How about you? Is your list ready?

Not a problem.

I'm so glad you're here today because I am teaming up with a group of bloggers brought together by Sarah - Thrifty Decor Chick, to share our favorite things, which means lots of proven good ideas to add to your Christmas list!
If you're coming from Nest of Posies, welcome!

Hey there!

I've been busy working on my son's room, building the shelves.
Well, I've been cutting wood and putting things together in the garage. 
I really want to finish that room before Christmas but I'm not so sure that will happen. :/

So, the project today was an easy one. Maybe, because I didn't do much of the work. I have to give a big thank you to

Built-ins Around the Bed Frame - First Part

Well, I'm finally back at my son's room!

It's taking me forever to complete this room but, it's almost done.
I'm slow...
And most of the time I'm working on so many different things at the same time that I just can't help it.
It goes very s-l-o-w-l-y.

Add to the equation that there are many things that have to be done and they don't add much to the progress...

DIY - Wooden Planters

Hi friends!

Last week I packed away all the Fall decor and organized the basement a tiny bit, only to make a bigger mess during the weekend!

Yep, I had an organized basement for just a couple of days. During the weekend I began unpacking the Christmas bins and boxes and began bringing stuff upstairs. Now I not only have a messy basement, the whole house is complete chaos!
The bedrooms upstairs have been in complete dismay for a few months already, it always happens when one room is in renovation. The adjacent rooms have to hold stuff that doesn't belong there, so, it doesn't look pretty.

Anyway, this year's Christmas decor is beginning right at the
