Old Fence turned Stocking Holder

Our house doesn't have a fireplace so I struggled this year finding a place to hang our stockings.  Last year I hung them below our TV on the console.  But this year my husband said "NO"!  He hated it last year because they caused the remotes to not work!  Oh, husbands!!

So when I found this old fence gate (for only $5) I thought it just might work!  Plus, it was already green!
It was really dirty and the paint was chipping, so I hosed it down good, then gave it a quick sanding to get the big flakes of paint off.
Then I gave it 2 thick coates of polycrylic, added hooks, then added our stockings!
I was hoping to hang it somewhere, but our house doesn't have a lot of wall space in the family room, so I just leaned it against the wall, underneath Santa!  It works!

May you all have a Merry Christmas!

Holiday Wreaths

This year I made myself a new wreath for my front door, and let me tell you, it was time for a new one!  My old one was, well, old!  And not just old to me!  It was my mom's hand-me-down!  
Here's my new one that I'm thrilled with:

 But since I was so excited with how it turned out, I made a few more!  Ha!

I made this one to hang in my entry way,

this GIANT one for my Mom (who also needed a new one),
 and this lovely for my sister!
 I love how different they all turned out!  


It's Christmas at Our House

It's finally looking like Christmas around here!  I LOVE decorating for Christmas, so this is our house at Christmas time!
Of course, one of my favorite spots...the porch!

I call this my "Pretty Tree".  I love having the tree with all the adorable homemade ornaments from my kids, but THIS tree is in my music room and I love making this one "pretty"! 

 I just added little pops of red to these rooms to give them that Christmas touch:
