One of the main features I love in a house is the fireplace. Living in the Midwest, you will agree with me that they do come handy in the coldest of seasons; but I love fireplaces even more because of the multitude of ideas they give when it comes to decoration your house for the different seasons of the year. Mantel decoration has to be one of the easiest to play around with and it can quickly become the focus point of your house when guests enter. It also allows you to transform your home decor from one season to another without having to break the bank on new furniture or such! To am up your mantel, you can use anything from pictures or art frames, to figurines, flowers, decorative pillows, ottoman or chairs, trees, books…and stockings, wreaths, Christmas figurines, and gift boxes for example in Christmas period. Just about anything! This is were your creativity and originality come in 🙂 Need to get some pretty cool and festive ideas on how to decorate your mantel this season? Check out these mantel decorations I put together, and tell me which one is your favorite. Happy Friday!

Hello lovelies and happy Thanksgiving,
Just one day closer to Thanksgiving, and a few days closer to Christmas! Somebody. Stop. The. Time. Please… Seriously, I can’t stop thinking about how time has flown by! It makes you put a lot of things in perspective, but I digress. This post is right on time; as we have our first snow earlier this week and the magic of Christmas is starting to kick in even though we still haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet. 🙂 In our family, we start braking out the Christmas decorations only the weekend after thanksgiving, but I can tell you that seeing all these amazing Christmas décor on the internet, throughout the city and some areas of my corner of the wood, is so exciting! It just reminds me of how my parents used to drive us around in our neighborhood to see the amazing décor and lightings! It was fascinating and still is for me. Real Magic! I believe Porch/ entry decors are kind of the preview of what’s awaiting you inside the house. If you happen to be in an “awe” moment when you see an entry décor, chances are, you will stand in “awe” when you enter the house… I know you agree!
Well, Tis’ the season, and I can’t help it, but picked a few of some amazing porch/entry Christmas decorations on Pinterest… Enjoy, and while you’re at it, let me know what you think.
Thank you for reading; and I hope you enjoy Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
It’s that time of the year again. Christmas trees are going up and ornaments and figurines are coming out of their hiding places. Kids are getting more and more excited and are looking forward to their Christmas gifts. Christmas has to be my favorite holiday… it’s magic! And beside celebrating the real meaning of the season and doing various and fun activities with loved ones and exchanging gifts, Christmas decorations always put me in an awe moment. Years after years, I’ve dreamed of transforming my home into a winter wonderland with an elegant and sparkling scene. However, my husband always ends up convincing me not to, because of the fact that the kids are still young and that wouldn’t be such a great idea. Ah, what sacrifices wouldn’t we do for those kids, huh. You know I wouldn’t go down without a fight, so I always try to incorporate a white decor somewhere somehow in the house. If you are anything like me and appreciate a white, minimalist Christmas decor, I’m sure you will enjoy these “winter wonderland decors” and get inspired on how to incorporate white or silver into your Christmas Decor this year.
