a holiday home.

A Holiday Home :: The Arrow House

Our house is all decked out for Christmas + I am loving it! I'm convinced that it makes everyday things (like folding clothes) more magical. No joke. Next time you're folding laundry, sit by your Christmas tree. You can't say it wasn't more enjoyable that way.

Anyways,

It was such a treat to be able to decorate our first home for the holidays. Especially the fireplace. This Florida girl is all about fireplaces. They're just so cozy and you can "beautify" the mantel to whatever suits your fancy. This year, I went "craft crazy" but I totally dig the way it turned out and love the fact that it was inexpensive. Win win.

Rustic Chalkboard :: The Arrow House

Don't you just love this rustic chalkboard? This was my first attempt at making one (which made me incredibly nervous) but I couldn't believe how easy it was! Want to make your own? Details coming to the blog next week!

Ok so, I love this deer and I saw it at Target a while back but kept telling myself I didn't need it BUT once I realized it would go perfectly on my mantel for Christmas, they were all sold out (at least at my Target) so I went to the next town over and they had ONE left. You better believe I snatched that thing up.

Oh and love that tassel garland? Super easy. You can find the tutorial here.

And this little guy. He's my favorite. He loves the tree + waves at it every morning. How cute it that? Ugh. No words to describe how much I love this child.
