Muse of the Moment: Christmas Decor

With only 3 weeks 'til Christmas I am definitely getting into the spirit of the season. I am listening to holiday tunes on Pandora :) and planning out the Holiday decor for my rooms! We live in a great area of our city that has lots of shops and restaruants and a huge fountain and park area and tonight they are kicking off the season with the lighting of a HUGE tree, fireworks, music and food! I am SO EXCITED! Then I am enlisting Nick's help with our own decorating :)

Here are some inspirational images I am loving this week :)

I would like to hang this on my front door...

Then the front of my house would look like this.... ;)

I L-O-V-E Magnolia wreaths and garland!

I am also loving these beauties! I would love to see the red one hung over a huge mirror is my dining room :)

Just a  few more wreaths that I love!

How cute is this Christmas Tree Placecard?

These would be PERFECT in our Aqua and Red dining room!

This is a DIY project on my Christmas Decorating To-Do List! I will post pics when it's done!

Have a lovely weekend :)

Then we headed to FLORIDA to see our beloved GATORS play their final game of the season @ THE SWAMP!! It was an incredibly fun trip. I surprised Nick with tickets about 2 weeks ago ... I think it won me the "coolest wife ever" award :)

Then we spent a day in Tampa/ St. Petersburg

So... now to the "Ta-Da List" I have been promising!

First is the ugly, bachelor pad shelving unit from our Guest Room/ Office. I made a skirt of this piece to hide its unattractive design and to camoflouge all of the stuff we need to keep in it!


sooo much better, right? The sewing took me hours and hours because I am just learning how to sew but the outcome is great! All you need to make a skirt for your own ugly shelving unit is....

Stay tuned tomorrow for the next *Ta -Da* project!
