Christmas Cheer!

I was trying to come up with some new ways to decorate for Christmas this year & decided to hang some ornaments from our kitchen light. I went to Dollar General & got some awesome deals on really nice ornaments, pine cones, a spoon rest for the stove & a really cute Santa cookie jar for the counter.

Seriously, check out a dollar-type store if you're looking for holiday items. Many things are priced higher than a dollar but still a heck of a lot more reasonable than you would spend in a "regular" store. There was a huge variety of gift bags, wrapping paper & bows too.

This is the trifle bowl I filled with pumpkins & gourdes to decorate for Halloween... at least it's put to good use since I don't often bake.

Nothing like a cozy, glowy house to come home to at the end of a long, stressful day!

  1. CUTE idea with the hanging ornaments on the light!

  2. trifle's are the bomb you should really make them more often. i made one when we saw mike and jaysa last and mike devoured it. it was quite revolting! :) in a good way.

  3. I just realized that I can hang ornaments from my kitchen light fixture too! My trifle bowl is huge though so maybe I'll look around for something smaller. I'm sure I have SOMETHING... I'll add this to my to do list this weekend! Maddy & Mikayla will enjoy it too!
