Its rare for me to purchase Christmas decor before Christmas...I'd say 90% of my new decorations were bought after Christmas. Also its a great time to stock up on throws, flannel sheets and wrapping paper that works for all year long.
The yellow bottle brush trees are my favorite find. I paid $5.98 for each. They were the large ones and from Target. I was hoping to find the pink ones but they were very popular this year. I think they were originally $16.99.
I found this pillow stuffed into a collection of new pillows and it was only $5.98. Even though it was for Christmas it works all year round and the colors are perfect for Harper's bench area.
I do love to buy a few ornaments every year. Target has the best ones. I found this stag and some ceramic deer and fox, a felt elephant ballerina and a noel rope wrapped one.
I could only find two of these hot pink bottle brush trees and the fox salt and pepper shakers were $2.98.
I found a throw for Harper's chair, a sweater queen size throw for our master bedroom, a stuffed Rudolf for Harper as well. I only found one roll of paper this year.
Now on to the peek of Harper's curtains....and the picture quality is not the best but we finally have the curtain rod and curtain panels up. I used curtain rings so I could shorten the length of the panels by folding the top of the panels. Because of the electric baseboard heating under the window you don't want anything close. But since we don't need it all year long I can unroll the panels and they can be long. This also meant I didn't have to sew.
The rings are black and I do plan of spray painting them gold to mach the rod when it gets warmer out.
I'm hoping to get photos of Harper's room this week to share. I haven't finished some small projects but I figure I can share those down the road.
I also open up my etsy shop after Christmas break and I'm working on new designs for tags. I'm planning on making some wall hangings and new flour sack towels for my etsy shop. With Harper its much easier to work on just the etsy shop. I did give up my space at Crompton and its been a bit sad for me. I enjoyed it so much but I will be painting furniture here and there and I hope to go back to having a space when Harper gets older. I know how fast babies grow and I want to enjoy her before she does get older.
