wow! it's really here, folks.
christmas is just days away and i've had barely enough time to get ready for it. the biz has been so busy this holiday season so check out my super simple decorations for this year –

popped a cluster of candy cane holly in the wreath above the mantle,

tucked some glass balls under my glass top,

and went around stuffing greens into ever corner!

here's our house in the winter sun with pretty wreaths in the windows...

even though on the inside i like to keep it feeling like it's summer all year long.

and lastly, our happy tall & skinny tree from lenhartsville tree farm!

happy holidays everyone!!

this was one of my favorite LYI clients from last year! she found me via etsy and even came to visit me at a craft show in brooklyn. remember her awesome poster invite? (see below) well, check out the actual day...

even better? not only is jillian totally gorgeous
but she's so amazingly beautiful as a person, too!
(how rare and fantastic)
she was super sweet and amazing to work with
which made this project so wonderful.
