I told you I love to shop Whimsy just as much as the next girl, so I always snag a few fun things during the sale.  Sometimes the sisters and I trade items and sometimes we just purchase them.  Either way it’s a win win.  When I saw this sign my sister Mel made I knew I wanted one.  I loved the natural look to it yet it was still playful!  And it fit perfect in my entry:)

red and white christmas

I got the lantern from IKEA for I think $6?? and sprayed it red, it used to be galvanized.  They are super easy to take the glass out and spray.

Entry christmas

and I got the scarf of Black Friday from Old Navy.  It was only $8.  I hung it there one day after wearing it and loved the pop of red.  Ry LOVES that I take a hook up with it…that and the pinecone ball:)


and the boots fit in good as well:)  What can I say, I’m a sucker for free decor.  Using scarfs and shoes?? Wonderful.

This is the view from our kitchen.

Peace pennant

and here’s our eat in kitchen.  Sometimes I find it hard to decorate above the board and batten, and although I could have left it bare, it needed a pop of red.  This pennant worked perfectly and I could put it up with my ever-so-loved 3M command hooks.  No holes…perfect.

Kitchen Christmas

That’s it for Christmas…but I’m SUPER EXCITED to show you our craft/homeschool room that got the complete makeover…if you haven’t guessed already.  I love how it turned out and I did it for next to nothing.   I’ll keep you guessing til after the festivities;)
