A Whisper Of Christmas

Well, I'm beginning to get this little blog all spruced up for the Christmas season. I've started to feel a little Christmas-y since the cold arctic air rolled in yesterday. Shhhh..... don't tell, I started listening to my favorite Christmas station on Pandora- I know, I just couldn't help myself! Christmas is such a joy-filled season. I'm still holding off on all decorating for Christmas around the house though until Thanksgiving has passed. Living simply and intentionally means slowing it all down and enjoying every season. Thanksgiving is such a special time, so I'll wait for it to pass before I begin any Christmas decorating.

What I am doing right now is organizing my Christmas decorations and figuring out how I'd like things to look around here to honor the Christmas season. I'm busy sewing up some new pillows in fun vintage fabrics and red gingham- love gingham! I'm going to continue with using all natural elements {this means FREE stuff y'all} this year and keep the decorating clean and simple. You'll be seeing lots of evergreen and whites and pine cones used in lots of places. The word for this Christmas is SIMPLE. Doesn't that just sound so pleasing- simple. Now, say that with me real slow like, s-i-m-p-l-e. 

I've added some new Christmas banners to my Etsy shop  and I'm going to be using lots of those in my decorating here too. I've used book pages, whites and traditional reds and greens to create some star banners that you can use to decorate a shelf, mantle or even string on your Christmas tree. I've also added some gift certificates to the store that can be purchased for those folks that you just aren't sure what they want this year. 

Join me Monday and I'll be sharing a new tradition that our family is going to be starting on December 1st- The Jesse Tree. If you'd like to embark on this journey with us, you'll have plenty of time to research or purchase some books on the subject. I'm so excited about celebrating Christmas using the Jesse Tree! We're going to be using Ann Voskamp's book "The Greatest Gift".

Have a fabulous weekend y'all and until next time...... AE
