Christmas Decorations Continued

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Our computer has a virus so this will probably be the last time I get on it for about a week until it gets fixed. (This post has taken me forever to do because of it!) If you email me or leave a question in the comments I will be able to email you back from my phone but I just won't be able to return every one's comments. :( Just a reminder, if you leave me a question in the comments, be sure to leave me a way to contact you with the answer. Someone asked about having the crib bedding made vs. buying a ready made set but I cannot comment on your blog because it says I have to be a member to leave a comment. So if you can leave me your email address I will get back to you. Thanks!

Now, on to Christmas decor!

There used to be another plate hanging below the white and green one in our laundry room but Cody knocked it off the wall so it broke. :) So I just put up a Christmas wreath for now.
This is looking into the laundry room from the kitchen. I change the the signs over the door for the seasons.

I think this plate was my only Christmas decor purchase this year. I love the colors! It came from The Christian Book Outlet.

Those M&M's didn't last long...
This little wooden girl gets so many mixed reviews. I think Cody is used to her now but some are scared by her ghostly white face. :)

The snowman wall pocket is waiting on all the Christmas cards we will get. I love going to the mailbox this time of year!




I think I noticed that my kitchen has a candy cane and holly theme. :)

A fun craft fair find. :)

This is all I did in the guest bath this year. I had totally forgotten about this snowman picture that I got at Gordman's last year. It is always fun to find new things in your decorations! :)

That should finish out all our rooms that I decorated. :) I haven't gotten my crib bedding in yet but I should this week. I will try to post a picture from my friend's computer if I can. I can't wait to see it and I can't wait to show you! Have a good week!

Hi Shannon! I too wanted to know why you decided to make your own bedding vs. buying the bedding "package". We're expecting our first in April (a boy too!) and I've just not fallen in love with any of the things in the stores. I'm tempted to just get fabric and have it made as well! Love the Christmas decorations!! nbschug@yahoo.com

You have some very cute things. I love the sign on your stove and the new snowman picture in the bathroom. Can't wait to see the crib bedding.
I had a computer thing going on once and had to call the Geek Squad. Best money I could've sent. lol

Shannon! I have the same "Merry Christmas" metal that you have hanging over your laundry room... I finally found a place for mine... we must shop at the same place. (o: (It's pictured on my blog btw!)

Your decor and especially laundry room is inspirational! ~ kim

I've loved looking at pics of your beautiful home for a while now. I just wanted to say that you have one of the prettiest laundry rooms I've ever seen! I would love if mine looked like that, but with all these boys and kids running around, I think that that might be a losing battle for me! Can't wait to see your little man's room when it is complete! Take care :)

Sorry for your computer problems...that can be so frustrating. I hope you're back up and running again soon...it's always fun to read your blog and see your creative decorating.

My favorites are the Merry Christmas sign above your doorway and the ornaments hanging from your chandelier.

Oh computer woes is the worst...you may not be able to get to this in time but wanted to send you some linky love with your earring tree that you made. Remember I said I was doing the same post (months ago)? Well, I never got around to it and thought I'd post it as some fun last minute gift ideas...wanted to show yours as well but can't find the month. :) Let me know.

You have the best sense of style!! Everything looks so great. :)

Its So Very Cheri said...

I love all your decor and you look so tiny in that next picture--just you wait.
So you are having computer issues while I have Google issues that never seem to end.
After weeks and weeks of non-stop Google issues, and still having problems-I am throwing my hands up and making much needed visits. Google doesn't even have any suggestions on how to fix the on going problems-ARGH!!!
I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can come by for a visit. I miss seeing ya over at my blog. AND I Love the bedding fabric. I made all 4 of my kids nursery edding, curtains, dust ruffle, bumper pads, etc...it is fun to do a one of a kind room.

Love, love, love your blog. I have been a stalker for a few weeks now. I was wondering where you get the signs that change out over your laundry room? Thanks!
