A Beautiful Mess

Christmas decorations are slowly going up around our house.  My living room looks like elves delivered nice little totes full of Christmas decor........and then a bomb went off.
It's a little stressful for things to be in such chaos but such is the creative process.

You have to make a mess to make things beautiful. Or at least that's what I keep saying to myself.

Don't you just love "twiggy" things.  I couldn't get this little $2 tree I scored at a yard sale to speak to me...and then I added gold twigs and was just the thing that made me smile.
Ornaments on a silver serving tray are a simple way to add beauty to your vignettes.

I hope you're making progress around your house!

Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. I always make a mess before it all comes together! Love all of your pictures - everything is looking beautiful! Hope you will come over and visit the B Farm. Now following you!

  2. I understand the mess and I'm avoiding it this year . . . I drug one box in and then didn't DO anything with it! Your space looks lovely so I know it was worth it for you. :)

  3. Glad you stopped by and partied with me. Tis the season:)
