Getting our tree has always been a special time for us and is now even more special since the nuggets have their input and help in the selection process. I have a feeling in the years to come we might decide on having multiple trees. In the midst of all that shine, one of the things I love that we’ve done with our ornaments is, every time we go on vacation we buy an ornament from that country or state which then makes its way onto our tree.
This room here with the fireplace is one of my all time favorite rooms. The simple fact that it has a fireplace is awesome, but I also love the stone work and the reclaimed mantel. If you haven’t noticed my style tends to be a mix of rustic chic (if that’s really a term). Our mistletoe is also hung in between the walkway here and at the top we always add in a few clippings for our tree.
I have more built-ins here which I love but it also adds for more decorating (not necessarily a bad thing). I might add a few more things to this section, but for now it works. I just have to be careful with what I put on the lower shelves because the nuggets are fascinated and want to play with things. Who can really blame them?
I’ve shared this little guy before but he’s seriously the best and one of the cutest little Santa’s I’ve ever seen. He was given to me on my first Christmas (many Christmases ago at this point) and still to this day plays music and his little nose lights up red when you press his hand. I love that A recognizes he’s sentimental to me and has asked me several times if this is my special little guy. He knows to be very careful with him and let him sit on his shelf.
