Lights in the Night

I hope all of you have been enjoying your holidays.  They’re not over yet…  Though this is the Christmas season, I’d like to backtrack and post on some cute little Hallow’s Eve items I bought previously in the beginning of October created by Midwest*CBK.  An inexpensive way to spruce up a room during the holidays, be it Christmas or Halloween, are with the use of these darling nightlights.  One of my nephew’s stocking stuffers was an adorable snowman nightlight (showcasing several colors, one melting into the other) I picked up at CVS for just $4.99!  I love CBK’s mosaic apple and pumpkin (holds a flicker bulb) lights!  Christmas and Halloween are not just for kids ;)…

Holiday Cheer

Decorating for the holidays can be a lot of work but after all that’s said and done, home just feels that much more special. I love…

clear Christmas lights (makes everything look soft and classy)
our wool hat & mittens advent calendar from Garnet Hill
pine-coned wreaths
mini Christmas trees (true or faux)
pink tinsel
vintage European glass ornaments (from my childhood)
handmade ornaments of cotton batting, felt, wool, wood, or yarn
Rudolph & The Misfit Toys
resin villages which light-up
classic renditions of holiday music
the scent of balsam fir

I also prefer thoughtful cards and stocking stuffers to one large present (it’s much more exciting).
