Slowly but surely I'm getting into the Christmas spirit. This year we purchased our first real tree. It's such a treat to smell the fresh scent of fir every time we open the door and I'm totally guilty of trimming sprigs off the tree's base to spread goodness around the house. I love placing evergreen sprigs and red berries everywhere; It's so simple and yet so pretty.
One of my favorite holiday traditions is hanging stockings. Since we don't have a traditional mantle, we make do by hanging our stockings on the built-in in our dining room. These stocking holders were a sweet gift and I'm hoping to fill them with black and white photos before Christmas. There's still time though, right? 15 days to be exact.
Aside from my newly-gifted coffee cup ornament, this garland is one of my favorite additions to our holiday spread. I only wish I had ordered more.
