As soon as Halloween is over, my mind turns to Christmas. There isn't anything in the world like listening to old Christmas carols, sipping a mug full of hot cocoa and decorating the house in holiday goodness. It is so much fun for a couple just starting out to discover their Christmas style and begin to collect ornaments together. For Tom and I, we like things that look as if they were passed down through generations and made by an old German grandmother. Picking faves is impossible, but here are a few choices in pretty, glittering pastels:
LOVE cotton spun Santa's like this one from The Pink Tulip.
Cute as a button snowy cottage ornaments.
Cody Foster is a wonderful folk artist who creates the prettiest paper pulp glitter houses like the one featured here. I want to collect a whole bunch and make a village under the tree!
Hearting these bottle brush trees!
Spool of old fashioned tinsel comes in gold, red and green too!
I'm not sure which is better; these fabulous retro lights or the box they come in.
Most of us had a grandmother who made us an ornament like Harriet the Hare for Christmas. If you aren't one of the lucky ones who still has theirs, Anthropologie carries a few different styles that are sure to make you feel nostalgic.
Simply adore the blown glass cuckoo clock ornament with pinecone weights.
