Here it is, Christmas Eve and I am finally getting around to sharing my Christmas decor. Get ready for picture overload. I haven't crammed like this since the night before a big exam in college!

This is my kitchen window, the focal point of the room. Can you believe that doll house?! While I was visiting my Great Aunt Sarah this past spring I went on a treasure hunt in her attic. My cousin Cynthia and I found her doll house from the 1940's and she gave it to Lilly! I also came across a box of felt sequin and embroidered ornaments and light switch covers Cynthia had handmade in the 70's. I fell in love with them. I hung them on the garland all around the window. (Cynthia, if you are reading this, thank you for all of your pretties, love you) The large bottle brush candy canes are from Marshalls this year.

A favorite corner in my kitchen

This wreath was my grandmothers and means so much to me. She hung it in her home every Christmas that I can remember. The fruit was originally on a foam wreath form but through the years so much of the fruit had crumbled that this year I finally carefully removed all of the fruit and attached it to a green wreath. I hope this will help preserve it for many more years to come. I love this guy vintage handmade frosty found at a thrift store years ago Anthropologie cupcake ornaments backed with a vintage tin plate my vintage Christmas apron collection makes me smile :) vintage Christmas pin cushions even my terrarium is decked out with a cute little vintage deer and pine trees This little tree sits by my side of the couch where I read and watch television. I love the little stockings crocheted by my husband's grandmother! I made the little skiers a couple of years ago based on these. you can find the tutorial for the aged chenille stem candy canes here some of my favorite vintage Christmas cards I adore this onewould you believe I bought this awesome Santa at Walmart 4 years ago! I love how he looks framed by my book page wreath. This is definitely one of my favorite spots in the house right now. I made the "Merry Christmas" garland years ago. I modeled it after one I saw at Anthropologie but put my own twist on it. Those cute pink mittens were a recent garage sale find. My vintage nativity looks so pretty with candles lit in mercury glass votives at night. Perhaps my all time favorite Anthropologie ornament a winter wonderland on my vintage plant stand This is such a cozy spot and look at these two faces!! LOVEI think I could leave these decorations up all year and never tire of them. I'm sad I have to pack them all away soon :( Tomorrow I will reveal our tree. We put up a real tree this year and I have enjoyed it so much! There is nothing like a live tree at Christmas.

I hope you all enjoy your Christmas Eve! May it be a magical one. xoxo, Molly
