Our little tree! Decorated with many of my favorite childhood ornaments:
When I was growing up, every year my grandma would send me an ornament. My great aunts would send me some too. They sent me 5 or 6 really cool Barbie ornaments:
Jason and I got this rolling pin ornament this year for me in honor of me starting my foodblog. [and it's cute]
When Jason's parents were first married, they were too poor to buy a star for their tree. They had just eaten a pie so they made a start out of the pie tin. Jason and I have recreated this foil star since 1. we like the story and 2. we are poor too. haha. [Interesting fact: that pie tin star still graces the top of the Thomas family tree]
A few other Christmas things including my childhood stocking :)
Our advent calendar we got last year.
My mom got me this cute santa hat candy dish. Love it.
|Nothing says Christmas like mint M&M's!|
Holiday dish towels are a must!
Hope your holiday decorating and Christmas shopping is going well! I am gearing up for my handmade/homemade/vintage Christmas gifts this year! I will share some of them later!
