Christmas Link Up - Christmas Trees

This past week has been a whirlwind! Welcoming out of town family, baking, cooking, shopping and spending time together are all things I'm thankful for. I trust you had a blessed Thanksgiving too!

I've joined a group of over 30 bloggers for the next four weeks, to celebrate and share all things Christmas!

Favorite Christmas trees from diy beautify!

Painted Christmas Ornaments

WOW! It's so easy to create fabulous and affordable painted ornaments in any color you want! You'll find the complete tutorial at diy beautify!

Traditions are an important part of our holiday celebrations. A sure thing around our home each Christmas are homemade gingerbread houses, almond bark and handmade decorations.

When the kids were little, they loved making paper cutouts with glue and glitter. Now that they're older, they'd much rather admire the decorations while munching on Christmas treats.

So this year I enlisted Mr DIY to help me! Together we shopped for supplies and then created painted ornaments for the Coca Cola themed Christmas tree that we decorated last week. Each ornament was topped with a glittered monogram, made with our extended family in mind.

Christmas Countdown Advent from an old Shutter

Don't roll your eyes at me, but I'm going to wait to share the winner of the $100 Farmhouse Light Giveaway until the end of this post!

I'm curious, when you were growing up, were you an eye-roller?

I was an eye-roller to beat all eye-rollers, especially during my teen years!

My brown orbs were rolled often (usually at my mother and mostly behind her back), expressing my teenage disgust at practically anything and everything.

Turn an old shutter into a functional Christmas countdown advent calendar! Your kids will love it and it will add farmhouse charm to your home all season long. For instructions please visit

Decorating with Plaid

Happy Friday friends! It's no secret that plaid is where it's at this year! Just look around you when you're out shopping. And in case you missed it, I shared some wonderful ideas for gifts in the Ultimate Frugal Shopper's Guide to Plaid a week or so ago.

Today, I thought I'd bring it full circle and show you how I'm using plaid in my own home. Maybe some of these ideas will be new to you and inspire you to add some plaid to your home.
