i took some time to set up a little christmas cheer in this tiny cottage. i like my holiday decor really simple, but i do change it up a bit every year, and try to put some intention in. these next few weeks can be hectic, and it’s nice to bring some pretty in at home to counter the pace of it all.
little white lights make me happy. so do tatted things, and a thrifted vintage plastic deer. on a random impulse, i bought a bouquet of pink roses instead of my usual gathering of branches for a “tree,” and am fully stoked on them! there are cranberries on a romantic strand of dental floss, waiting to be hung. there’s a wreath on the door. some mental lists. things to make. water in a kettle. sam cooke on the stereo. into it. readysetgo.
this is how i geek out on december. how do you keep these weeks festive and nourishing for yourself? how do you make it yours? what are your favorite parts?
