35 Y/O wife to Tim and mom to Emma,Noah,Caleb, Stella and 2 babies in Heaven.Trying to walk in the path of the Lord and carrying my family with me. I love our 1902 home we purchased more 10 years ago. It is constantly evolving and goes through whatever changes my little heart desires. I love vintage treasures and I'm always on the hunt for them! My hope is that this blog will be a constant scrapbook for my family and home,a place to make new friends and just somewhere to lay out my thoughts,even if they aren't beautiful or inspiring.

Christmas Clutter.

I believe one of the reasons I'm not always too excited about decorating for Christmas is because I'm not a fan of the clutter. I'm not saying I don't have clutter in my life because I do. I just don't need anymore of it.

I really like Anna's take on things over at the Pleasant View Schoolhouse. Her simple approach to holiday decor sounds pretty stress free!

There are still have tons of boxes in the attic that will not be coming down this year. Our tree,nativity,a pair of wicker trees on the mantle and some small heirloom pieces are all that is displayed this year.

As long as the house smells of cinnamon and the lights are twinkling I will still feel Christmasy.

I agree. I loved Anna's post too. My house is feeling very cluttered right now. Hope you are having a quiet moment.
