A Relaxing, Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

November 30, 2014

I hope you all had a wonderful, long Thanksgiving weekend. Mine was great. Wonderful food, I started my Christmas shopping, visited with friends and family and best of all- I had time to read and just relax.

I wanted to have my Christmas decorating done this weekend in NH, but that is not going to happen. And I am not going to stress over it. Instead I spent time looking at Holiday ideas:



This is THE best bow making tutorial I have ever seen. I love big beautiful bows and now I can make my own.

I love to make wreaths each year because they are so simple and beautiful:

Every year I say I am going to try to make a boxwood tree:

I have always loved them. I think decorating with boxwood is my favorite Christmas decoration which I wrote about here. It is expensive to buy the tree already made, but they do last a long time. This is pretty too:

I have never gone crazy with a theme decorating our Christmas tree. It has always been simple:


Most are handmade ornaments the kids made over the years:


My treetop is always blessed with an angel I made with my Grandma Mimi years ago:


Makes me smile every time I walk into the room!

Look at all the snow we had from Wednesday’s storm:


Have you started decorating for Christmas? Do you have any special projects you would like to do? I am really looking forward to this year’s Christmas because we are all going to be together! Yay!


  1. Sounds like you had a great holiday weekend Kelly! I had my college girls home and we cut down our Christmas tree and it was great! Lots of dishes in the sink and crumbs on the counter but so what! I start decorating tomorrow!

  2. How in the world do you keep your angel so clean, and how do you keep her at the top of the tree? She reminds me of one of my angels that I could never figure out how to keep her at the top.
